Why do people apply for Biology programmes?

There are many different reasons why people want to participate in Biology Internship & Volunteering programmes abroad, here is a selection of the hopes and aspirations of other people who may be just like you!
Vera (Netherlands)

I hope to gain more experience in plant science at a higher educational level (for example a university). I am really interested in how plants grow and how they are cultured, especially tropical (production) plants. I also consider a job in plant breeding. I would prefer to work with plants in the lab/climatecells/outdoors and besides that to gain some computer related skills for example bioinformatics. I am also interested in international trade, but my major is applied biology, so I have no experience with this. And of course it would be nice to have nice colleagues to work together with :)

Thabang (United States)

I hope to gain the application of a scientific method to the investigation of a criminal investigation of which the result can be presented in a court case to support the prosecution or defence in a criminal trial
