"UCL has been great for networking. At the major conferences I attend each year I meet friends and colleagues even though they might be in different sub-disciplines. I am still in regular contact with many people from UCL who are scattered throughout the world, especially in the USA."
Dr Jaime McCutcheonSubject: Neuroscience PhD
"My degree programme (Wellcome Trust 4-year PhD in Neuroscience) has been extremely valuable to me. It is small so we got to know a lot of faculty very well, and the opportunity to try our hands at multiple areas of neuroscience at the highest level has been incredible."
