Applied Biology graduate James speaks about his experiences while studying at WIT as well as being a sports scholarship recipient for three years

"I really just loved studying biology at leaving cert level. I definitely loved the practical side that must have been my favourite thing about it, and it was pretty much 50/50 with theory and practical so that suited me."

"I am currently doing the one-year add-on to make my degree a level 8 and then I aim to get a job. I would love to get into the bio-tech industry but the opportunities are endless as it is a growing industry and people can go down so many different avenues."

"I’m pretty sporty so I play basketball with WIT, I was a sports scholarship student for my three years of the level 7 degree. In my 1st year we got to varsities so that was definitely the highlight. As for the scholarship, it was great. It offered me grinds, physio, anytime that they could help me they did. It really is very advantageous."
