Life Sciences students recognised in University Awards

The University careers service announced the winners of this year's Dundee Plus Awards at an online ceremony last week. These awards honour students who have developed transferrable skills through a host of extra-curricular activities.

Life Sciences were well represented with a number of students from the School named as finalists. Sophie Stewart and Caitlin Kavanagh were named as winners in their respective categories.

Life Sciences students high achievers on international stage

Life Sciences undergraduate students are consistently named amongst the top students in the annual Global Undergraduate Awards. 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.
