Laidlaw Undergraduate Internship Programme in Research and Leadership

The Laidlaw Undergraduate Internship Programme in Research and Leadership is an exciting new programme and the biggest of its kind in Scotland - aimed at equipping students with the skills and values to become leaders in their chosen occupations beyond University. This is open to students in their penultimate year of study.

Internships and work experience

Information about Internships and work experience is available from the Careers Centre. A number of Schools offer internship opportunities. Students are encouraged to contact their School directly for further information.

Further awards are received from UK sponsors of research, including The Wellcome Trust, the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council, the Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council, the Nuffield Foundation and Carnegie Trust.

Undergraduate Research Assistant Scheme

The Undergraduate Research Assistant Scheme was developed to promote projects that emphasise the many ways in which Research and Teaching can come together. Undergraduate students interested in this program should approach their school in the first instance to find out what opportunities are available.
