Getting a bank account

Lloyds TSB main branch (Perth Road, very near the University) will open an account for you and provide a debit card on the day, providing you have a passport and a written UK address (a utility bill is accepted, but not required). A temporary address is permitted, such as a "care of" address, as is the use of University Halls of Residence.

iGEM Summer Project

iGEM

The international Genetically Engineered Machine (iGEM) competition is the World’s premier synthetic biology competition. Here, multi-disciplinary teams of undergraduates pit their wits, intelligence and innovative skills against each other. The competition takes place every summer and more than 200 Universities from all over the World take part.
