The play follows the women from their first day of class to their final celebration. A lot can happen over the course of a year.

Science and Higher Education is a discussion taking place as part of the series of events the RSE is taking forward with the British Academy to help enlighten the Constitutional Debate in advance of the independence referendum. This public discussion seminar will address the possible impacts of constitutional change upon Science and Higher education.

This seminar will examine the possible affects of Scottish independence upon the ability and ease with which students are able to cross the border to take up Higher Education opportunities, and how this might affect the accessibility of Higher Education for those in the UK and those in Scotland. The seminar will also look at Research Funding, particularly funding for research in the sciences, and will ask how UK Research Councils will decide to allocate funding in the event of Scotland leaving the UK.
