During your first and second year, you will have between six and nine lectures and three tutorials every week.
In your final two years, you will have several weekly teaching sessions, although they depend upon the options you choose.
We value independent study very highly at Edinburgh, so we expect you to spend considerable time outside of your lectures and tutorials completing secondary reading and research.

Your work will be assessed through essays, projects and class examinations depending upon which courses you choose. You will often work in small groups to complete projects and to prepare presentations.
There will be degree examinations in April/May.
The Current Students area of our website has information about getting help and advice as well as how to change degree, how to report Special Circumstances etc. It may be of interest to you.
As an international student, I found both academic staff and supporting staff are so kind in helping students and really take responsibility for us. The facilities at Edinburgh University are also easy to access and use. Beside the academic knowledge, I am improving my life skills as well.
