Mastering workplace learning

The University of Edinburgh is participating in a scheme to provide more opportunities for masters students to undertake work-based projects.

Postgraduate students in lab

The Making the Most of Masters (MMM) scheme, involving the universities of Aberdeen and Stirling, aims to improve collaboration between higher education and industry to enhance postgraduate students’ employability.

Addressing business needs

By uniting employers with academics from individual masters programmes, the scheme hopes to generate opportunities for students to undertake work-based projects.

These projects will address real organisational needs and will provide an alternative to the traditional university-based dissertation.

These projects can be adapted across all disciplines and to key economic areas in Scotland.

Making the Most of Masters is supported by the Scottish Funding Council's ‘Learning to Work 2’ initiative.
