Careers Talk – Earth Sciences & Life at Imperial College

Ex-Student, Alice Bennett, will be returning to school on Friday 23rd September to talk about Earth Sciences and how her course is going so far at Imperial College, London.

When: Friday 23rd Sept

Where: L12

Time: 12.35-1.15pm

“I have just finished my 2nd year studying Geophysics at Imperial and am a student ambassador for the department of Earth Science & Engineering. I was aware when I was studying at AGGS that very few students were aware of either Earth Science and Imperial College (I myself only discovered them when I started to look through university prospectuses) and I think I am the only ex-AGGS student currently at Imperial – I would love for this to change as both give great opportunities for female students in STEM subjects.”
