Company Profile:
Degree programmes with an integral industrial placement offer students the opportunity to spend the fourth year of their degree in paid employment. Placements vary considerably but in general terms, students are placed in an industrial, commercial or research environment where they will obtain a breadth of practical experience to complement their degree programme. Students who successfully complete a year in industry and the associated assessments graduate with an MSci (undergraduate Masters degree) instead of a BSc. following completion of their honours year.

Placement Coordinator for Undergraduate Students Descriptive title - this will become your hyperlink in the online catalogue

What we offer:
am the placement coordinator for the School of Medical Sciences, University of Aberdeen.

We have a number of highly capable, enthusiastic students who are seeking one-year placements in research areas relevant to their degree programmes. The students are selected on academic standards and general overall ability and matched to company requirements.

*Please note that Dr Carrington is also the coordinator of the SULSA Undergraduate Student Placement Scheme further details available on *

Full support is given to placement companies throughout the placement process - from advertising the placement to selecting students as well as during the placement year.

IP remains with the company and confidentiality is guaranteed.

We also have a number of post-graduate students seeking shorter-term placements.

What are we looking for:
I am seeking companies who may be interested in taking an undergraduate student for a one year placement following their 3rd year of study.

Placements must be relevant to the student's area of study and should be paid.

Placements allow the student to gain practical experience and offer the company the chance to have a defined project completed within the year. They are also an excellent way for companies to pre-select the best students for employment after graduation.

Placement companies can be from the UK or further afield.
