The Eurofins Awards will provide students with the opportunity to travel overseas for field trips, research or training, and will also support dissertation writing costs. This will enable more students to undertake extra-curricular activities that will enhance their studies and benefit them as they take the first steps in their professional lives. The awards will be made available to academically outstanding students who would not otherwise be able undertake such activities.
Professor Robert Gilbert, Director of the Graduate School in the Medical Sciences Division, says: ‘We are extremely grateful to the Eurofins Foundation and SENSE Foundation Brussels for their support of students in the Medical Sciences. These awards will help our students gain valuable, additional experience to support their professional development and ensure that they make the most of all opportunities whilst studying here.’
