Testimonials

 The Biotechnology Advanced program at SLC was a perfect choice for me. The lectures and lab work that I experienced over the last three years was really interesting. Choosing this program was a last-minute decision; I was looking up science programs and came across the Biotech page for SLC, and after reading about all of the courses, I was sold. I have always been interested in science and within two minutes of reading about the program I was excited to start school in the fall!

This program has helped improve my self-confidence and encouraged me to branch out to do things such as helping at open houses, becoming a peer tutor, and simply answering questions and taking on responsibilities I probably wouldn’t have done otherwise. All of the people that I have meet throughout this program have been amazing and I’m so lucky that I have developed so many life-long friends and relationships.

The placement has been an invaluable opportunity and experience. I am so lucky that I was able to participate in so many projects that helped improve my confidence and my lab skills. I look forward to continuing my education in Ireland at IT Sligo for the BSc in Medical Biotechnology as well as to the awesome career that I will have doing so many things that I love!
