A Year 13 pupil at BVS has completed a placement as part of the prestigious Nuffield Research scheme.
Ira, who plans to study Medicine next year, completed a 4 week research placement during the summer. During this time, she worked alongside researchers and scientists to conduct experiments, collect data and compile a research report. Ira is the first pupil from BVS to participate in a Nuffield Placement and her placement supervisors praised her work. Ira will be presenting her research report at a special event in Cardiff in October.
‘The Nuffield placement was a fantastic opportunity. I enjoyed working in a real research environment and it proved that my passion lies in science, reinforcing my decision to study Medicine.’
