Towards the end of Year 2, students are given the opportunity to attend a 2/3 day residential retreat. This gives students the chance to develop lifelong connections that will endure beyond the completion of their studies. IBioIC provide support to arrange the retreat with significant input from student representatives. During the retreat, students are expected to discuss their research project, future career plans and undertake additional intensive training. The retreat also provides an opportunity to have fun as a group.
"I really liked the entire trip. In particular, this part seems like it will be useful in any project management roles where we're working in teams. This may be for future careers or even now when working with undergraduates”."
