Towards the end of Year 2, students will be given the opportunity to attend a 2-day residential retreat. This will give students the opportunity to develop lifelong connections that will endure beyond the completion of their studies. IBioIC will provide the funding and the support to arrange the retreat with significant input from student representatives. During the retreat, we expect students to discuss their research project, future career plans and how they will stay in touch with IBioIC and with each other after completion of their studies. The retreat also provides to opportunity to have fun as a group and experience the great outdoors.
