This publication reports on a project looking at enhancing graduate attributes in students studying life sciences.

The publication outlines how the project has brought together a large number of case studies demonstrating how the student experience and future graduate attributes can be enhanced by activities including: group-based exercises; early level inquiry-based activities; field-based, placement or project work designed to provide a flavour of the research-based scientific process; or immersion in life sciences research environments. Three external events were held to test opinion and obtain feedback, these together with structured interviews with senior staff and survey work with academics and students have led to a number of recommendations to further enhance research-teaching linkages in the life sciences
