Over the last 18 months we’ve been working with Abertay University to provide Marketing & Business students with live assessments alongside various work experience opportunities, to support students and help them understand the requirements of real business environments and markets.
Back in March 2016 we opted to create a scholarship for Abertay students, aimed at those who are first in their family to attend university, or who come from a low-income background. The scholarship will provide additional financial support throughout their final year at university, allowing them to focus on their degree and achieve the classification required for their future career.
On 1st November it was announced that, Abertay student, Miss. A McGinlay was awarded the Bonar Yarns Scholarship after being shortlisted as a finalist among two other strong candidates. Miss McGinlay was awarded the scholarship due to her exceptional application, work ethic and overall performance across her academic career within her full-time BA (Hons) Marketing & Business degree.
Alyson said: “I was delighted to hear the news that I had been awarded the scholarship. It was lovely to meet some of the staff at Low & Bonar Dundee Ltd. It’s one of the oldest in the city, but it adopts very modern techniques in the way it is run, which is similar to the way we are taught at Abertay.”
Congratulations! We’re absolutely thrilled to be able to support a local university such as Abertay, and to be able to reward a students hard work through a scholarship opportunity. We look forward to working with Abertay University for the rest of the 2016/17 academic year.
Greatness is in the Detail
