Cohort 3 students tour of Irish Universities!
Cohort 3 students had the fantastic opportunity to travel to to Cork and Dublin to hear supervisors from University College Cork, University College Dublin, Trinity College Dublin, the Royal College of Surgeons and Dublin City University pitch their projects IN-PERSON!!!
For many of the supervisors it was the first in-person presentation they had given since the pandemic began so there was a great sense of excitement and relief at the return to some sort of normality. Students were in the unique position of having supervisors pitch their projects to try and attract a student to their research group! Students also had the opportunity to tour the university campuses and talk to the cohort 1 and 2 students based in those universities about their experience there.
Great fun was had staying overnight in a youth hostel in Dublin with a trip to temple bar to sample the Guinness!
