"As part of my four-year PhD, I have thoroughly enjoyed the opportunity to undertake rotations in three different laboratories prior to commencing a PhD. This has been a hugely beneficial experience, as it has allowed me to make an informed decision in committing to a particular group, and broadened my experience in different research methodologies and environments.
