Katie Lennie (Third Year Undergraduate - professional placement)
"I found the professional placement an exciting and extremely useful alternative to studying through the standard means of lectures and reading. Work experience enabled me to expand my skills beyond the classroom, gaining not only important career experience, but also life experience. This proved not only invaluable in strengthening my CV on leaving university, but also gave me the freedom to contribute a new piece of research towards a topic of interest. An additional benefit for me was there being no final exam, putting less pressure on those that excel at coursework."
