Why do an internship
Previous interns to the SPCR internship scheme have enjoyed the opportunity and identified several benefits from taking part:
I highly recommend the internship. Really grateful for all the support I continue to receive from my supervisors. They've encouraged me to push this project all the way to conference presentations and publications"
