MASTS is working together with the Making the Most Of Masters initiative in order to improve collaboration between work places and universities by providing opportunities for marine focused MSc students to undertake work based projects. These are adaptable across disciplines and key economic areas in Scotland.
You probably have a number of projects you would like to do but simply do not have the time or resources to undertake. Making the Most of Masters can help you. We link you with masters students with the skills and drive to undertake this work. As it forms an integral part of their degree programme, a formal salary payment is not required. The only condition is that the scope is sufficient to form the basis for the student’s formal academic assessment.
“Masters students and employers increasingly expect an element of workplace experience during postgraduate studies, to complement subject specific knowledge. Making the Most of Masters is exactly the type of initiative we need to ensure Scottish postgraduate students gain that experience and the essential workplace skills needed to enhance their employability.” Dr Bernadette Connolly, Director of Graduate School, College of Life Sciences & Medicine, University of Aberdeen
“Our masters graduates have to compete successfully in the harshest job market for 40 years. This inititive will enable them to do that to their highest level. The University of Edinburgh is strongly supportive of this project, which makes bridges with industry and employers, and allows us to help companies and students through useful interaction.” Dr Sue Rigby, VP Learning and Teaching, University of Edinburgh
