Making the Most of Masters is a method of helping your business by working with masters students and universities.

Benefit from the expertise of postgraduate masters students undertaking specific research projects targeted to needs you have identified. Our dedicated team will link you with masters degree programmes, students and facilities, in areas relevant to your requirements. We aim to contribute to the overall development of the Scottish economy by offering opportunities for your business to benefit from working with skilled and highly motivated masters students.

You probably have a number of projects you would like to do but simply do not have the time or resources to undertake. Making the Most of Masters can help you. We link you with masters students with the skills and drive to undertake this work.

Students can be based in the organisation, the university or more typically between the two. Projects can be desk, field or laboratory-based and should meet the academic requirements and deadlines.
