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.
