Iain Martin


MSci Natural Sciences 2011, Graduate Management Scheme, Network Rail

Hello, my name is Iain, a Nat Sci MSci graduate of 2010. I majored in Molecular and Cellular Biology, which provided me with a good understanding of the biochemistry of the cell. The flexibility in the course allowed me to choose to study a wide range of modules including courses on the biochemistry of cancer and the molecular basis for evolution. Before I started, I was torn between chemistry and biology and the structure of the course allowed me to get a feel for both, before specialising enough to be able to continue in the discipline (as some of my colleagues went on to do). A degree in Natural Sciences open doors to many job sectors, providing many transferable skills; after leaving UCL I chose to leave academia and am currently on the graduate project management graduate scheme working for Network Rail. Finally, the social life at UCL (and Nat Sci in particular) is second-to-none. The Natural Sciences society is one of the most active at UCL,
creating a friendly community across all years, the events are amazing - particularly the welcome boat party on the Thames.
