Kirsty Kennedy - HNC in Applied Chemistry
What Course did you study at Belfast Met?
I studied the HNC in Applied Chemistry awarded a Distinction.
Where did you progress to and what role are you in now?
After my course I completed a degree in Biomedical Science and was awarded First Class Honours. I am currently a Product Development Scientist at Terumo Blood Cell and Technologies. I am also a STEM ambassador, and have 5 years experience in a GMP lab from this course. I next plan to undertake a Masters in Regulatory Affairs (medical devices).
What advice would you give to current Belfast Met students?
To never doubt your capabilities, work hard in the subjects you are struggling on with your lecture to expand your knowledge, that no information isn’t not important - even when it’s not going to be on the exam. To always be eager, and ask lots of questions.
