Who'll survive the dragons' den? Join us for this special event designed to give a taste of UCL's new Bioscience Entrepreneurship MSc.

At this special session – part of UCL's Graduate Open Day – students from the UCL School of Pharmacy will be pitching their innovative science business ideas to a panel of experts. Will the students' ideas get the thumbs-up from the dragons?

The 'dragons' will be led by Professor Marcus Fruttiger, Programme Director for the Bioscience Entrepreneurship MSc – a new Master's course starting in 2020. With its integrated curriculum, this programme is designed for students who want to create high-impact enterprises in life sciences. There'll be a chance to learn more as part of this session, so sign up now for your free place!
