Former U.K. Associates of BIOS Interns have said:
- "I loved going into work because the workplace environment was very positive and encouraging. I had a range of invaluable experiences such as an opportunity to go on the Atlantic Explorer research vessel and also going to visit Nonsuch Island. It was really nice to feel so welcomed at BIOS and this experience will encourage me to look for similar opportunities in my career." Charlotte Gerrish, 2023
- “I chose BIOS because it gave the impression of being a close-knit, welcoming community of staff and scientists conducting high-end research and it did not disappoint. I would absolutely recommend a BIOS internship, it is amazing to me how much I've learned and developed in just 12 weeks and I believe that, regardless of background and interest, any student could gain a lot from BIOS.” Amy Jackson, 2023
- “I hope that future interns will have as much of an incredible and life-changing experience as I have had.” Nicole Burt, 2022
