QMU offers a 10% discount in postgraduate tuition fees for alumni who have graduated with an undergraduate degree from the University’s Edinburgh campus. This discount is available for students who register for a full or part-time postgraduate degree. This discount applies to home, EU and overseas students, and applies to the self-funding element of the postgraduate tuition fee only. It does not apply to any part of the tuition fee which is covered by a scholarship, funding body, your employer, a company, or any another source of funding. To find out more about this discount scheme contact E: Admissions@qmu.ac.uk ❒ Taste panelists wanted for food trials Do you love food? Do you like to express your opinions about food and drink? THE SCOTTISH CENTRE for Food Development and Innovation at QMU is looking for enthusiastic foodies to join the Centre’s food tasting panel. Consumer tasting panels, which run every week from the Centre’s Sensory Evaluation Suite, offer the chance for panelists to provide feedback on a wide variety of products including bakery, meats, ready meals, snacks and chocolate. Some panel sessions are quick and simple and are completed in around 30 minutes, others require more detailed tasting of up to around 45 minutes. Each week panellists will receive an email with notification of upcoming sessions to choose from. Most sessions are Monday through Friday and so are ideal for people who are retired and those with a little free time during weekdays. Panellists will be rewarded at the end of each session with a £10 Amazon or John Lewis voucher. For more information, or to sign up as a consumer panel taster, email Lucy MacLellan or Phil Cook of the QMU Food & Drink Consumer Tasting Panel on E: consumerpanels@qmu.ac.uk ❒ Call for classmates Graduates of HND Institutional Management and Domestic Administration, who started in 1978, are invited to celebrate the group’s 40th reunion in October 2018.
