Aysha Khatana, Forensic and Analytical Science BSc(Hons), placement with LGC “I really enjoyed venturing out of my comfort zone and exploring different areas of chemistry. I improved my communication skills and I learnt to perform experiments from start to finish like preparing samples or setting up a method on an instrument.”
