Things to share - 27 May 2020

Keeping alumni up-to-date with news, events and opportunities.

1. Share your experiences of learning online

We’re looking for alumni to share their experiences of online learning at a postgraduate level with those starting their studies this year and others considering applying in future years.  How did you make it work? What were your hopes and fears? What did you enjoy? What hints and tips could you share?  We have a number of student recruitment events taking place online over the coming months so if you’d like to participate in a student panel session, we’d be delighted to hear from you. Alternatively, if you’d like to contribute a short written piece or video, please email the Postgraduate Student Recruitment team at to find out more.

2. Find your purpose and startup idea

The University of Edinburgh Entrepreneurs Society is hosting a series of online events open to both students and alumni. The first - Find Your Purpose and Startup Idea - takes place on 9 June and features Purpose Coach Marco Chak.

Would you be willing to take part in a survey researching the 'experiences of social distancing during the coronavirus pandemic'?

Do feel free to share with others out with the University community, we do appreciate you getting involved.
