After the MRes
Business Plan Tutorial
To help our MRes students develop a quality and effective business plan, Ugur Taniverdi, a student in Firat Guder’s research group who is currently in the process of starting his own business based on a scientific advance in his field led a tutorial session on how to write a business plan.
Steps after MRes
PEM-MRes students attended an informal “Steps after MRes” hour where Prof Ji-Seon Kim, Prof Martyn McLachlan and Dr Piers Barnes shared hints on tips from their experience on anything from applying for a PhD to making an application stand out from the crowd.
