Equate Scotland works closely with students and academia to support women students studying STEM through their courses and into the start of their professional careers. We do this through providing training, resources, and networking opportunities. We have a wide network of students across Scotland, the network is powered by our Student Champions, Staff Champions, affiliated Student Groups, and partnerships with colleges and universities.
We signpost internships, work experience programmes, funded studentships, and graduate opportunities on the Equate CareerHub job board. Check out what opportunities are currently available on Equate CareerHub here or sign up to our newsletter to receive monthly bulletins.
Equate provides several experiential learning events every year. These intensive 3-4 day courses provide attendees with real industry insight and experience, provide networking opportunities for attendees whilst developing their practical skills and knowledge.
Universities and Colleges can get involved with the network by recruiting Student Champions to bring women and non-binary STEM students together on campus and creating opportunities to link with women and non-binary STEM professionals and employers. If you work at a university or college and are interested in recruiting a Student Champion for the next academic year, find out more here.
Equate Student Champions are paid ambassadors for the work of Equate Scotland within their college or university, they are recruited by their university or college and are currently studying a STEM subject. All the Student Champions are supported by Equate Scotland and given skills and training to help them in their role.
We support a range of student groups and societies at universities and colleges across Scotland. If you’re studying and want to meet up with other women and non-binary people studying STEM subjects, then check out your institution’s society. Equate supports the student groups by providing training, resources, and support.
We provide a wide range of free online and in-person training and workshop opportunities for women students in STEM. Our training and workshops provide a space for women and non-binary students to connect, engage, and learn for their professional development. We also host Meet-Ups with organisations and professionals within the industry who can share industry insights, career pathways, and upcoming opportunities in their field.
