Saltire Scholar Programme

The Saltire Scholar Programme is open to all students in their penultimate year of study at a Scottish university. It is open to students from all degree backgrounds which means that whether you’re studying to be a social worker, a physicist or an accountant, you could gain an internship through the programme if you prove you have the right attitude and ability.

This Opportunity will enable you to:

  • Undertake a project of commercial significance and deliver tangible results to your host company by applying theoretical learning in a professional environment.
  • Work part-time whilst studying, providing you with industry experience that aligns with your career ambitions.
