Our annual Bioscience Careers Day (BCD) shows bioscience students the wide variety of careers open to them

Last year's event took place online, over three days from Tuesday 2nd November to Thursday 4th November 2021. Each day was hosted by a representative organisation from our Careers Committee. With expert talks, Q&As and panel discussions, each day was designed to enhance guests' knowledge of the variety of careers available to bioscience graduates.

This annual event is coordinated by the Royal Society of Biology's Careers Committee.

What happens at the online careers day?

  • Talks from experts in the field about the variety of careers available to bioscience graduates
  • Interview tips to sharpen your technique for future employers
  • Opportunity to ask questions to bioscience professionals and other students from across the UK
  • Q&A discussions on career opportunities, and alternative careers available with a bioscience degree

Who can attend?

BCD is aimed at undergraduate and Master's students. PhD students, postdocs, careers advisors and school students considering a bioscience degree are also very welcome. Employers looking to meet talented students focussed on their future careers and wanting to find out about talk opportunities at this event, or sponsorship opportunities at future events, should contact Harriet McAra at
