Our graduates are well prepared for a wide range of exciting employment opportunities, and can be found in high quality and high profile jobs across the globe. With a good honours degree, many of our graduates extend their studies through a Masters degree, or undertake research for a PhD. Some continue in academia, where they have obtained research posts, lectureships and Chairs at Universities in the UK and abroad.
Many others use their science training to gain posts in environmental or conservation management. They may work for government organisations such as Scottish Natural Heritage or the Scottish Environmental Protection Agency, or NGO's such as World Wildlife Fund and the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds. Particularly in the Bio-medical Sciences, there are also many opportunities to work in Industry, or for graduates to establish their own bio-tech companies or consultancies.
Another key area of work is in education and interpretation. Whether this is teaching in a school, working as a countryside ranger, or producing wildlife documentaries for the BBC, Aberdeen's broad degrees, and the contacts made as a student, have allowed many of our graduates to enter into these highly competitive fields. And even if you decide to move out of science, Biological Science students have found that the generic skills they gained in Aberdeen have allowed them to follow careers as different as Press Photographer and RAF Radar Operator.
