Virtual Internship

Saltire Scholars work with some of the world’s most recognised brands and innovative companies.

You will undertake a project of commercial significance and deliver tangible results to your host company by applying theoretical learning in a professional environment. Scholars experience a different perspective by working in an organisation with a global focus whilst immersing themselves in a different culture.


I met almost the whole staff that day online and I thought I was going to work with people who didn’t know much about design given the nature of the company. I was out of my depth here because I barely knew much on the topic cardiac rehabilitation and it scared me but what kept me focused was what I could learn from them and what I could contribute to their company.
