Success for Freddie

Freddie Ferguson (MPhys) was one of the physics team captains who got his team to the semi-final of the IBM Universities Business Challenge in Edinburgh this year.

He has just been successful in getting a Saltire internship this summer at Finning International in Vancouver.  He will be a Business Analysis Intern. You can find out more about the Saltire programme here. Freddie has agreed to write a couple of blogposts for this blog later in the summer.

171 bright, ambitious and talented students from across Scotland’s universities have secured internships around the globe. I’m very pleased to say that 12 are from the University of Edinburgh.

Here is what the Saltire Foundation told us:

“This year was a particularly competitive year, with over 1,500 students applying to take part in the programme – a 30% increase on last year. This incredible number is a strong indication the value your students continue to see in our programme and the opportunity it presents them. The Careers Service’s support of the programme and encouragement you provide your students has been instrumental in 2018 being yet another record breaking year.”
