I chose to study Microbiology at the University of Nottingham due to the excellent reputation that the University has in both research and academia. Whilst attending the University I have had plenty of opportunities to get involved with research undertaken here. I spent 2 months of my summer working as part of a professional research group in the Centre for Biomolecular Sciences at the university.
