The Microbiology internship programme at the University of Glasgow is expanding and I’m looking for employers who are able to host a final year student as part of their Honours project.

Placements will begin w/c 30th September 2024 and will run for 10 weeks, with students being on site 3 days/week (Tues-Thurs). Internships are unpaid and the work undertaken will form part of the students final year Honours project.

If you think this would be of interest to your organisation or know anyone that may be willing to host students, please get in touch and we can discuss further.
