You can find out about student life in Edinburgh from the people who know it best: our staff and students.

You can also explore the campus, learn more about what you can study and ask questions about admissions, accommodation and job prospects.

Everyone is welcome at our Open Days - prospective students, their families, teachers and careers advisers.

Our next Open Days:

  • Friday 9 June
  • Saturday 23 September

Post-offer visits

In most subjects, if you receive an offer of admission from us, you will usually be invited to attend a post-offer visit day. These days typically take place between February and April.

You will have the opportunity to meet with academic staff from your chosen subject area, tour the facilities and attend general information sessions.
