The University supports students’ attendance at the two annual U21 conferences:
Students attending these events write reports for the University and have had articles included in The Oculus, the journal of the Undergraduate Research conference. Jamie Tait is the main University contact for these conferences.
The University is taking part in the Universitas 21 Anniversary Fellowships, which were created to celebrate the network’s tenth anniversary. The University made three awards, with students and staff travelling to undertake research at McGill University, the University of Melbourne and the University of New South Wales.
From the start of the 2008/09 academic session the University is establishing The University of Edinburgh Universitas 21 PhD Research Scholarships. A minimum of 10 scholarships will be available each year to assist PhD students studying at the University to travel to a U21 partner institution. The aim of the scholarship is to enable PhD students to pursue collaboration or gain access to sources or facilities at other leading research institutions.
There are also opportunities for Universitas 21 student exchanges. Sandra Morris, International Office, is the University’s Student Mobility Coordinator. The International Office helps all new and continuing students who come to Edinburgh from outwith the UK and provides a wide range of services.
