All applications to the University for full-time study must be made online through the Universities and Colleges Admissions Service (UCAS).
This includes applications from international students outside the UK.
You can choose up to five different programmes or universities on your application.
If you are applying to study medicine or veterinary medicine, up to four choices can be used for these subjects. Your fifth choice should be used for an alternative, back-up subject. This does not prejudice your application in terms of demonstrating commitment to study medicine or veterinary medicine.
If you apply to more than one university, we will not be able to see which other universities you have applied to until the other universities have made their decisions. This means that we make our decision on your application without knowledge of your other choices.
If you are planning to apply for more than one programme at Edinburgh you should seek advice on your choices from the relevant college admissions office.
In some cases you may be advised that it would be more advantageous to use only one of your choices, if, for example, more than one programme you are considering applying for is within the same subject area.
If you change your mind about the programme you have applied to at any point in the admissions process you should contact the appropriate college admissions office at the earliest opportunity to discuss your options.
There is no minimum or maximum age on entry for our programmes, except where a professional body requires this.
There are different tuition fees for students whose status is Home-Scotland/EU (Scotland and European Union countries); Home-RUK (England, Wales and Northern Ireland); and Overseas (the rest of the world).
Your application undergoes an initial screening so that we can check your tuition fee status. If we require further information we will contact you.
If you are unsure of your tuition fee status please see our fees and funding information.
Your school or college will normally have access to UCAS Apply and will be able to guide you through the application process.
If you are applying independently, UCAS can advise on the application process.
Open Monday to Friday, 08:30 - 18:00 (UK time)
If you have hearing difficulties, call the UCAS Text Relay Service.
