Three Life Sciences students at the University of Dundee have been successful in securing a prestigious Saltire Foundation Scholars Undergraduate Internship over the summer.  This scheme gives undergraduate students with huge potential and ambition the chance to experience the working environment of highly successful firms or high growth entrepreneurial companies at home and abroad.
18 students from Dundee were successful in securing a place on the programme (up 64% from last year).  Dundee is now ranked as the 2nd University in Scotland for applications and students placed.
Adam Crook (BSc (Hons) Biomedical Sciences) and Isla Murgatroyd (BSc (Hons) Sports Biomedicine) have obtained placements with GlaxoSmithKline.  Rachel Yee (BSc (Hons) Biomedical Sciences) has a placement at Coherent in Glasgow.
