Studying Economics and Politics at Edinburgh University has been a genuinely transforming life experience. I have been able to fully pursue my academic aspirations within the highly intellectual and stimulating university environment. My lecturers have been truly inspiring people, who I will certainly remember for the years to come. I simply love everything about Edinburgh, and will really miss it when these beautiful university days come to an end.
