Alumni Services

June 2014 | Alumni Profiles

Inspiring alumni wisdom from this month's fabulous five. From smashing glass ceilings to seizing opportunities, our graduates prove that there is no limit to what you can achieve with an Edinburgh education.

We are interested in the role that the University has played in your life, either directly - in terms of skills and knowledge - or indirectly, via friends, experiences or chance encounters.

Please get in touch and you and your experiences could feature on our website.
