“After graduating from Dundee, I went on to study MSc Molecular Medicine at the University of Goettingen. I then started working as medical writer and editor in the healthcare sector for two different companies. My Dundee degree enabled me to get a highly competitive place in the study programme "Molecular Medicine". And it also helped me to get a job as medical writer / editor.”
