Alumni Services

Send us your desk view

Take a photo of the view from your desk or work space for our alumni collage and it could appear in Edit magazine.

We want to know more about our alumni and their work. Send us a view from your desk, lab, field, workshop, ward, home office, studio - wherever you spend time working and creating - and help us make an alumni collage.

To inspire you, we asked colleagues from around the University of Edinburgh to do the same:
