Our three colleges and 22 schools use varying methods in the selection of undergraduate students.
Applications are assessed against agreed selection criteria for each degree programme.
Competition for places and offer levels vary between degree programmes.
We look for your suitability for, and commitment to, the degree programme for which you have applied.
Interviews do not normally form part of the admissions process at Edinburgh, though a few programmes require them under certain conditions.
We make information on the ratio of applications, offers and accepted applicants available to prospective students.
Certain study programmes require students to be checked for any criminal record.
