Our students are encouraged to apply for a Summer Work Placement in order to gain contacts and experience in a real-world setting. The Summer Work Placement Module can count for 20 SCOTCAT points of a student's final honours classification and is of twelve weeks duration (but this can include two weeks of holiday, if agreed with the academic and industrial supervisors).

We are always happy to hear from companies who are willing to give a student the opportunity of a placement within their organisation. If you would like to view our students' CVs, or should you wish to get in touch for more information, please contact Anne Millar.
