My CareerHub is exclusively for current students and recent graduates of the University of Edinburgh. If you are looking for vacation opportunities, it's worthwhile to keep checking all the internships advertised on MyCareerHub.
As well as looking at opportunities advertised on MyCareerHub, the following information has been collated by the Careers Service to help Biological Sciences students find work experience, both in research and in industry.
Employ.ed on Campus
The Careers Service also runs the Employ.ed on Campus programme for 2nd to penultimate year undergraduate students. This programme offers paid summer internship opportunities to students. Roles are available across various Schools and departments, and interns have the opportunity to complete an Edinburgh Award as part of the programme. The opportunities are advertised through MyCareerHub in February each year.
