    Culture

    Really nice place to study for an undergraduate but not targeted by certain large companies from London to gain exposure to the different industries or job roles available for students to explore. However, the startup culture in Edinburgh has been growing due to this case.

    High Quality Education

    This university is rich in history and academic standing. It has a great sense of community and is located in arguably one of the prettiest cities in the UK. The staff are great and have a wide variety of backgrounds and experiences, whilst still remaining very personable. I am very pleased with my experience here, and when challenges arose or I had issues, the university was very quick to find solutions and help me achieve my goals.

    Certain aspects that would need development

    Overall a well-rounded university. Certain areas could be developed, like publicizing events more and just overall welfare. The university does its part in many other ways but information reaching the students is limited in many scenarios.

  • English Literature
    Culture on Campus

    In my experience, The University of Edinburgh was the most solid and secure stepping stone I was fortunate enough to cross on my way to the real world. The thing that made the university really stand out for me is the diversity that can be found within it. From subjects, to buildings, to staff and to students, you will meet people and experience things from all walks of life. I studied English Literature and Italian, and found myself surrounded by some of the most intelligent, passionate and genuinely caring tutors I have ever met. My course was everything I expected it to be and more. Lessons are engaging and interactive, and I felt that everything was taught and learned with a view to helping everyone improve – students and tutors alike. The genuine love that my tutors had for their subject is what I enjoyed the most. Getting taught by someone who takes a genuine interest in what they teach, who they teach and why they teach it only makes students want to engage further, and, in the end, do better. As well as this, the location of the university couldn’t be better. You will study in the centre of the city, never far from cafes, bars, shops and clubs that are never empty of new people to meet. The student union is second to none, and provides a vast array of facilities from study spaces to bars, cafes and of course nightlife events. As well as this, should you want to meet like minded people, the union sets up events for specific interests such as open mic nights and slam poetry events. Many people will also live in student accommodation for their first year and later. I lived in halls during my first year, and the people I lived with went on to become my flatmates for the rest of my university career. Halls is a fantastic opportunity to meet people from all over the world and cultivate friendships you never thought you’d make. It’s a very special experience. There is also never a shortage of different events, programs and unions to get involved in. Whatever you are interested in, and in whatever field, there is an association for absolutely everyone. I would strongly recommend joining such programs, as it opens up a whole new world of people and experiences, all the while in keeping with your specific interests. I’ve recommended the university to all of my younger peers and would continue to do so as it really is a fantastic place to study – in the heart of the cultural capital of Scotland with all the buzz of city life, but at the same time, a rural sense of community with course mates and friends. The one thing I would say is always keep an umbrella, even in summer. You are in Scotland, after all!

    Information Science
    Lively campus and city, with degrees of variable quality

    For some specific courses and degrees, the quality of the teaching and the organization is inadequate. My degree (computer science) was much nicer, with some occasional sour notes but also some fantastic and inspiring professors and access to great research. Edinburgh uni has a very international vibe and campus, which definitely enriched my experience. Edinburgh is an extraordinary place to live, even though finding a good accomodation on a limited budget can be tricky.

    University of Edinburgh

    My time in Edinburgh was an unforgettable and thoroughly enjoyable 4 years. The architecture course was very well rounded and academically rigorous. I had a very diverse group of friends on and also outside of the course. A beautiful place to live and an absolutely wonderful chapter of my life.

  • Architecture
    The most picturesque city in the UK

    University of Edinburgh is a long established institution with a great history. Its experience is reflected in the quality of lectures/workshops as well as the high level of graduating Alumni. It was a pleasure studying in such a heavy-cultured and historic city. The Scottish weather can get gloomy, cold and rainy but the vibrant city makes up for it. I will definetly recommend it to anyone who is up for hard work but a rewarding student-life and most importantly good career prospects.

    A really great place to study

    UoE is a great place to study. The Uni takes a lot of effort to ensure that students have an easy time navigating academia. Facilities are all quite good and well-managed. There is a lot of flexibility in choosing courses and programs. Loved my time there studying Artificial Intelligence.

    A World Leading University Located in an Ancient Historic City

    The University of Edinburgh is definitely one of the best universities I so far encountered during my undergraduate degree in English Language and Literature. It provides first-class teaching, combined with the best state-of-the-art facilities (libraries, study halls, lecture theatres) and the latest academic resources. Apart from university life, the city of Edinburgh offers lots to explore. Many cultural events like the Fringe Festival or the Edinburgh Hogmanay are fantastic opportunities to learn about Scotland’s rich culture. Moreover, the city is in close approximation to surrounding regions and areas of interest like Glasgow, Newcastle and St. Andrews which are definitely worth to visit.

    Altogether, Edinburgh is a great place to live and learn. You should definitely take your time there to explore not only the university life and the city itself but learn lots more about Scotland in general. And the University of Edinburgh can surely assist you with organising your explorations around the region!
