“This was an extremely formative experience for me. I have learnt a lot about the process of grant writing, completing a scientific project and working in a developing country.”
“I have never had the opportunity to take on a research project of my own and, in this case, I was able to design and execute a study from start to finish. I am proud of what I was able to achieve in just 8 short weeks. ”
“I was amongst the speakers invited to an audience of industry professionals in Edinburgh. I gave a 30-minute presentation and had a positive response from the audience. This really built my confidence in public speaking and networking.”
“I feel much more enthusiastic about undertaking further research into dairy cattle lameness and hope that I can play a part (however small) in reducing lameness within the dairy industry. ”
“I have really enjoyed the project, the highlight for me was presenting some findings to a meeting of the top people in dairy farming in Tesco. Everyone was very interested in the findings and keen to learn more about what I was reporting. ”
