Work Experience

Every year the School of Life Sciences hosts students from local schools in order that school pupils may have an opportunity to investigate potential career opportunities before moving into further education. Placements are also provided through the Nuffield Research Placements scheme. 

Our annual Work Experience Week takes place over the summer holidays. Dates for 2019 will be confirmed soon. The week will include laboratory sessions, visits to Ninewells Medical School and the James Hutton Institute, ethics discussions and groupwork culminating in a celebration event with staff and students.
