Science Placements Testimonials

"The placement is still going well and I am learning a lot. Amgen is really proactive on getting us on field visits, so I have a couple of trips arranged in the next few weeks to shadow different roles in the industry."

"My placement at ABPI is really great. I would say this is probably the best way to look at the pharmaceutical industry from different perspectives e.g. policy, R&D, commercial and legal. Although I have been spending most of my time working on my project, I have had opportunities to attend external meetings/events and site visits. My supervisor has also arranged 1:1 meetings for me to meet and talk to all other members in the Research, Medical and Innovation team about their job roles/experiences. I have had discussions with senior scientists and have also attended the Pharmacovigilance Expert Network group meeting yesterday, where I spoke to Pharmacovigilance managers from major pharmaceutical companies and got some really good job interview advice."

"If it was not for my placement, I would be none the wiser as to what public affairs and communications had to do with life sciences. The placement put me in a really good place, in terms of career, to progress in the field and without it I would not have been offered a position with GE Healthcare. "I am grateful for the guidance and opportunities I have been given by both my colleagues at the BIA and Cogent Placement Services."

"Cogent helped me get a summer placement with the ABPI through Cogent Life Sciences, before I entered my final year at university. The placement was extremely insightful and I learnt a lot about the Pharmaceutical Industry. I am thankful for the opportunities this gave me."
