What is so good about this course?
For a start, it is a course unique to the University of Dundee
– there's nowhere else in the UK that offers a stand-alone graduate qualification in internships with this level of personal support and tuition.
How you will be taught

Students on internships based in Scotland will return to university 4 times during the internship to continue your career management development in a collegial environment.
