PhD Student Internship Opportunities
The Scottish Graduate School in Social Sciences (SGSSS) has unveiled a number of new internship opportunities for PhD students in Scotland. This includes at least one specific internship for a socio-legal studies and criminology student interested in youth justice. There are internship opportunities at Scottish Government, Scottish Parliament and NHS Health Scotland. These opportunities are open to all students SGSSS in their second or third year of study.
