Choosing and applying

Choosing where to study and working out how to apply to university can be quite a daunting prospect. Visiting universities in advance is a great way of finding out more and getting support and advice.


With such a wide range of subjects available, choosing which degree to study can be a very challenging decision. There are a number of things to consider when selecting your course.


Most people begin their application enquiries about a year before the September in which they plan to start university.


Visiting allows you to meet staff and students, to have a look at the facilities and to satisfy yourself that the University of Edinburgh is the right choice for you.
