Student Recruitment & Admissions

Campus visits for student groups

We are happy to accommodate groups of school and college students that wish to visit us outside of formal Open Days.


Group visits for school and college students usually include presentations on a range of topics, including:

  • Studying at the University of Edinburgh
  • Studying in Scotland
  • Why go to higher education?
  • Choosing a course and university
  • Applying through UCAS and the personal statement
  • Student life
  • Student finance
  • Making good use of Open Days

Student-led tours

We are also usually able to offer your group a guided tour of the central George Square campus, led by a current student of the University.

If you are interested in bringing a group of students to the University, please get in touch with us to let us know details of when you would like to visit.

Self-guided tours

If for any reason we cannot offer you a student-led tour, we do have a self-guided tour available.
