“I worked for an advertising agency before starting my own company handling PR. I then went into teaching as I wanted to circle back to the sciences. My degree opened up opportunities for further study at a post graduate level. I also learnt key life skills such as organization, taking care of my social self, time management, and really going after what I want.”

“A couple of months after graduating I started working as an associate medical writer with Zoetic Science (now Ashfield MedComms) in Glasgow. Within three years I was promoted twice - to medical writer and senior medical writer. The variety of coursework set during my Dundee course (e.g. essays, abstracts, lab reports, posters, presentations) prepared me for a career where I work on a variety of materials every day.”

“After my BSc in Biomedical Sciences in Dundee, I went on to do an MSc in Immunology in Imperial College London, and then a 3-year postgraduate stint at the National Centre of Infectious Diseases, Singapore. Currently, I am a 2nd year PhD student at the Nanyang Technological University, where I am researching on the detrimental effects of a particular leukocyte. The University of Dundee has allowed me abundant networking opportunities to enrich not just my career, but also expanded my horizons.”
