Student Profile

Louise Mansfield

Having completed a BSc in Neuroscience at University College Cork (UCC), I set out to further my scientific knowledge but was unsure of which direction to take. I chose the MSc in Molecular Cell Biology with Bioinnovation at UCC because of its interdisciplinary aspect, encompassing a broad range of interesting and relevant scientific topics. This MSc also had unique features including innovative training from the School of Business and Law, yet maintained an overall scientific educational experience. I could not have made a better choice. I received high-quality teaching from experts in various fields, made life-long friends and gained valuable practical skills and experience. I thoroughly enjoyed my 6-month research project in the School of Biochemistry and Cell Biology where I learned various scientific techniques in a challenging and friendly environment. Help was always at hand from our coordinators throughout the course, who did a fantastic job in the planning and running of the programme. Since completing the course, I have started my new job as a biopharmaceutical analyst in Eurofins Lancaster Laboratories. I have taken with me fond memories and a high-class of education. I feel my future career in the scientific industry will be enjoyable and rewarding.
