Since 2015, we have had 11 students highly commended in the Life Sciences category. This means that they were in the top 10% for their category and this included entrants from students across the world.

This places Dundee in third place amongst the 45 participating institutions which includes Cambridge, Harvard and Imperial.

The awards aim to celebrate top undergraduate coursework and foster interdisciplinary collaboration between students and recent graduates worldwide. Our students submitted work based on their fourth-year honours project.
