How to Apply

The DCAT Vacation Studentship Scheme is very popular.  Students are selected based on academic performance and a personal statement and can be from any academic year (although 4th year medical students are not eligible to apply due to timetabling constraints). 

Your Application

You will be required to submit:
  • An application form
  • A brief CV (1-2 pages), outlining work and any research experience (please include your complete academic performance)
  • A 300 word personal statement indicating why you would like to undertake a vacation studentship.  If you have discussed a specific project with a supervisor and wish to apply for DCAT funding, please highlight this in your personal statement.  (Please note - having an agreed project with a supervisor does not guarantee a vacation studentship.)
Please direct any queries regarding the application process to dcat@dundee.ac.uk or have a look at the handbook.
