BSc (Hons) Biopharmaceutical Science


Jack Bannister chose to study at the University of Sunderland because of its focus on industry-specific content which will help him to make a difference in people's lives. Jack received the University of Sunderland Scholarship, as well as the Sunderland Futures Fund and Vice Chancellors Scholarship, and is looking to work as a research and design scientist within Biopharmaceutical industry.

The University of Sunderland's course is the best for what I wanted to do, and the staff seemed to really know and care about what they are teaching. The University is focussed on industry-specific content which will help me to make a difference in peoples lives.

Lecturers are great and will help as much as they can, always having time for any student. Content is well chosen and very interesting. Really gives a good grasp on what goes on in the real world, with a great practical aspect.

If you are going to study in Sunderland, have a great time in the first year, enjoy the social side but turn up to every lecture and put the effort into your studies and definitely join a society. Work hard in the second year and apply for placement for as soon as you can. I've obtained a competitive placement at GSK (GlaxoSmithKline) which will open a lot of doors for me, in terms of my career.

Studying at the University of Sunderland was a unique, life-changing experience."
