The University’s Student Recruitment and Admissions team (SRA) will begin an active programme of events this month.
Throughout the next six months, the team will attend more than 75 targeted recruitment events, host information sessions for teachers, and deliver talks to prospective students.
The team will cover the four corners of the UK, with events stretching from Aberdeen to Exeter, Belfast to Cambridge and most major cities in between.
Many of the upcoming recruitment events will be targeting students in England, Wales and Northern Ireland who are planning to start university in 2013.
Attendance at these events will provide an opportunity to attract potential students at the beginning of their decision-making process.
These events also provide an opportunity to promote University of Edinburgh open days held later in the year.
The team will also engage with teachers and advisers from key schools, by hosting information sessions across the UK.
Teachers and advisers play a crucial role in helping their students to make an informed choice about higher education. We focus on providing clear information about our admissions policies, and about student funding and scholarships, to try to counter any myths or confusion which may have built up about the University.
