More about Alice
Alice spent her year long international placement working at RILKILT, the Netherlands
"I hadn't initially considered an international placement, but when I was unsuccessful in getting my UK placement, the science placement team at NTU gave me the idea for the company in Holland. I was excited by the prospect of this new experience, moving away from the UK and exploring a different culture and way of living.
I enjoyed living and working independently abroad and meeting a whole range of new people and friends. As a result of this experience I feel I've grown as a person and become more confident, especially in the lab.
As a Biomedical Scientist, my top tip when planning a placement abroad would be to make sure you arrange adequate health insurance before you go!"
