NI labs highly commended

Leading organisations across a wide range of sectors have been recognised for their commitment to graduate employability and pioneering research at Ulster University’s Annual Impact Excellence Awards ceremony.


From over 200 applications, Laboratories from the South Eastern Health & Social Care Trust and the Northern Health & Social Care Trust were shortlisted for awards. 

This recognises the continued commitment that laboratories across Northern Ireland provide to Ulster University placement students.

The South Eastern Trust laboratories were highly commended for the second year running in the “Placement Employer in the Public Sector” category. 

In addition, Northern Trust laboratories were the first regional laboratory to be highly commended in the “Placement Employer nominated by UU student” category.

Dr Declan McKenna from Ulster University said: “On behalf of the School of Biomedical Sciences I congratulate both the South Eastern and Northern Trust Laboratories on their success at the 2018 Ulster University Impact Excellence Awards. 

“This is highly-deserved recognition for the outstanding placement opportunities they provide for our Biomedical Science students. This work experience is invaluable in enhancing their knowledge, skills development and future employability prospects.”
