My student job with The Student Housing Company

John LawHi, I’m John Law and I have just finished my second year of Medical Sciences at The University of Edinburgh. I have always had a passion for medicine, and although I’m not sure if this is exactly the path I want to take, I know it’s a good start in any direction.

I grew up in a small town in South West Scotland called Stranraer. My family is originally from Edinburgh so it felt very natural to come here. My first visit to Edinburgh wasn’t until two weeks before I moved into Brae House, so it was all very exciting when I arrived.
