It will enable you to develop key technical, analytical and decision-making skills, and also help develop the personal skills you need to succeed in any career: effective teamwork, objective analysis and communication. There's an option to undertake work experience as part of the research project, subject to availability, which may particularly appeal if you are changing disciplines or career focus.
