    Great Course, bad Administration

    I liked the lecturer in the private law school. My dissertation supervisor Professor Andrew Steven has been especially supportive during my studies. However, considering the high cost charged by the University, I felt that certain lectures in other schools were patchy. I also did not like the administration at the University as I often experienced, mistimetabled classes, dubble booked rooms and the wrong grades appearing on the system. I was also not happy at the availability of the support services or sports facilities. It was almost impossible to get a carrers appointment as the slots were always booked up and could not be booked for the following week. I also was unable to access the University swimming pool for the same reason and cancelled my gym membership for this reason. I was however happy with the accommodation I have and it is the nicest student room I’ve had do far.

    Underwhelming education

    It is hard to give an accurate, unbiased review of my experience so far. I have had a full 2 semesters fully online, with only in person tutorials, which were lackluster. The content itself from my course was interesting, and the facilities of the University are great, but there is simply a lack of interaction with professors.

    Good program, needs more attention

    The program was very nice, with a lot of valuable information. However, the grading was not always fair and it seemed like they want you to graduate but don’t care about your career or future plans. The program has amazing and knowledgeable professors, an amazing learning environment and an amazing city. Overall, it was a good experience.

    Excellent facilities and exciting opportunities.

    I enjoyed my time spent at The University of Edinburgh, I felt like lecturers and staff value students’ opinions and were generally very helpful when provided with questions relating to the course or a broader subject. The course-specific equipment and facilities were excellent, providing opportunities to use high-level scientific equipment to develop learning and understanding of various aspects of the course. This was affected by covid, unfortunately, as all lectures moved online for my final two years which did affect the smoothness of how the course was run and how information was relayed to students.
    That being said, concepts and ideas were still explained well by staff even though it wasn’t in person.
    One or two downsides to my studies at Edinburgh University were COVID related so it is tough to gauge, but I felt a lack of community throughout the course and the uni, as well as different levels of support from staff. But overall I am very happy with my experiences and would highly recommend them to someone else.

    Course content

    In terms of my programme, I would say that I have enjoyed the content of my course more than anything. I came to University with a strong interest in politics and I feel that when it comes to graduation next summer that strong passion for the subject will remain. However, there are aspects of the course and my degree programme which I am less than satisfied with. The student support services both within the school of politics and the university, in general, are shockingly bad. The university seemingly makes it very difficult for students to see someone on campus if they need help. Within the school, it is hard to identify who is there to help if you need help and the support offered related to my degree is less than satisfactory.

    A Great Fresh Start

    I didn’t have a great start academically speaking, and I needed to find a school with a reliable “fresh start” programme. Luckily for me, this University provided me with a programme that allowed me to start over completely with a new degree and life path. They didn’t look at my previous University marks and only my ones from high school. I am an international student, and I found the transition difficult, but the school made this easier. I met lots of great people and a programme that supported my interests. The professors are knowledgeable and I felt listened to. The campus is beautiful and I found that it ended up being a risk worth its reward! Highly recommended!

    The University of Edinburgh

    The lecturers are passionate about their subjects, and the university offers many different opportunities for electives. Be sure to pay attention to the weight of content though, as academic readings can pile up. The school is very popular with international students. I feel that it does open up my career prospects due to its popularity and prestige.

    Edinburgh Teaching - Self-Driven Study

    The University of Edinburgh is very focused on what would be termed as “self-study”, which in reality means that there is a distinct lack of in-person teaching (as a result of covid, or other factors). There is currently a great deal of striking, which has cut down the amount of teaching time available for students. Regarding student life, the city of Edinburgh has its charms – it is an extremely safe city, with free transport (if you apply for a ‘youngscot’ student card), and has a fantastic selection of bars and bookshops.

    A personalised University education

    I am currently in my second year of study at Edinburgh, and I am so grateful for all the opportunities it has provided me with so far. I have studied a wide range of subjects, including Politics, Latin, and Art History. The chance to diversify your range of subjects really enriches your university experience and helps immensely with your ability to adapt to several areas in life. Being able to personalise your academic journey to such a high degree definitely gives you a unique education with a strong backing. I can definitely say that I never get bored! Apart from that, the English Literature department itself is fantastic-throughout remote learning last year I still felt that I was given an excellent education. Professors were always readily available via email for anything that I needed assistance with and were very enthusiastic both in class and outside it. Aside from the academics, the university is set in the gorgeous historic city of Edinburgh, which has the best of both urban and rural-you can be up Arthurs Seat seat in the morning and shopping on Princess street in the afternoon! It is definitely an inspiring place to live and really enriches the university experience. Student life is also fantastic, with lots of societies that link to the degree such as scriptwriting or slam poetry. Overall, I would recommend an English degree at the University of Edinburgh.
