Life Science Career Accelerator
Combine your study abroad experience in London with your desire for a meaningful, purpose-driven career. Whether you are headed for a career in science, research, medicine, or the private sector, you'll build a professional community and gain a deeper understanding of the skills necessary to thrive in a life science career. Take classes that explore the intersection of the world's wicked problems through a wide range of topics, and engage in an optional internship or directed research opportunity to further your experiential learning. This affordable program concludes with an IFSA-exclusive professional competency certificate issued by The Leadership Edge, a leading talent development firm specializing in the life sciences.
As part of IFSA’s commitment to Inclusive Excellence, our London Global Flagship organizes affinity groups. These groups provide opportunities for students with underrepresented identities to meet to discuss their experiences at home and abroad. We extend the invitation to all students, so they may voluntarily self-identify and participate. At least three opportunities are arranged throughout the semester in order to build community and deepen dialogue. Events may include exchanges with local students or associations, colloquia or lectures addressing identity topics, or specific activities that focus on viewing identity from multiple perspectives in the London context.
