Students from the 2012 DCAT Vacation Studentship Scheme were approached 6 months after completing their studentship:
6 students went on to do a BMSc
6 students presented their data at external conferences or events
4 students presented their data at the DRAMS Discovering Research event in Dundee
4 students submitted their data to a journal, with a further 2 expecting to submit their work to a journal upon completion of further work
3 students gained prizes for their work completed during their vacation project
Please note that this information was obtained February 2013, so some students may have acquired further prizes or publications since! Similar data will be collected from the 2013 cohort.
