You deserve to be here and are capable of succeeding.
If you are accepted as a student at the University of Edinburgh by our admissions officers, it will be because they judge that you are able to cope with the demands of the degree programme to which you are admitted.
This stamp of approval indicates that you have the potential to grow intellectually as a motivated self learner and graduate with your degree of choice.
It is important to remember this, especially in first semester, and not to feel intimidated by your new environment or inferior to any other student at any time.
