MChem Medicinal & Biological Chemistry with industrial experience 2019

Your Time at the University

I chose to come to Edinburgh as for me it was a perfect place to combine getting a great degree alongside an amazing sporting university, especially for my sport.

The University enabled me to balance both my swimming and academic ambitions by allowing me to take time out of university to focus on major competitions like the Commonwealth Games which allowed me to win a bronze medal at Glasgow 2014 during my university career.

During my MChem, I was able to do a year industrial experience which gave me the ability to develop the skills needed in a real working environment. This gave me more confidence about what I would/would not want to do when I was looking into my options after university.

Your Experiences Since Leaving the University

The ability to do a year in industry placement during my degree allowed me to develop confidence as to what kind of role best suited me and hence, what kind of jobs I would like to apply for post-university.

I began the RB Future Leaders Programme in September 2019. This two-year programme enables me to experience the end-to-end product development from feasibility stages of a product to post-launch, through three rotations around different functions within the business. I’m currently 6 months in and loving my time here at RB - It’s great to be part of such a fast-paced, consumer led, global company.
