The University has launched an exciting new internship programme, ‘The Laidlaw Undergraduate Internship Programme in Research and Leadership’, thanks to the generous support from The Lord Laidlaw of Rothiemay. This is the biggest UG internship programme of its kind in Scotland and is a unique opportunity for students to gain paid professional work experience, contribute to high level research in the University and benefit from an intensive leadership training course.
Students must negotiate a research proposal with an academic in their School and submit a research project proposal as part of their application.

REF (2014) Results
Purely in terms of outputs (published articles and books) the School of Divinity was ranked number one in Scotland. This was in part because the amount of outputs ranked as 4* (the highest possible grade) has increased since the last Research Assessment Exercise of 2008 from 20% to 28% of what the School produced. This is a result we can build on in terms of enhancing the School's research culture and outreach.
