Our graduates this month reflect Edinburgh's breadth of study with music, history, medicine, sociology and business all represented.
Music graduate Kathy Blackwell talks to us about how her career in teaching gave her the experience needed to co-author a number of educational music books for young string players.
The course was hugely enjoyable, thorough, and wide-ranging, covering everything from acoustics, musicology, harmony and counterpoint to ethno-musicology and performance. Hearing a live performance of an enormous Alpine horn at one of the acoustics lectures has certainly stayed in the memory.
Beth Hurrell talks to us about her eye-opening Edinburgh experience and what it means to do more than just say "yes".
The more engaged you are with the city of Edinburgh, and branch out from the student bubble, the better prepared you will be for life after graduation. It should hopefully be enjoyable as well!
Medical graduate Dr Philip Macklin talks to us about how a distance learning postgraduate qualification he completed while a junior doctor revealed a passion for understanding the scientific basis of disease.
In addition, I regularly undertake additional shifts as an Emergency Department doctor as I like patient contact and want to maintain the clinical skills that I learnt as a medical student and junior doctor.
Patrícia Soley-Beltran moved back to her home town of Barcelona after graduating to continue her research with an amazing and worthwhile outcome.
In Divine! the personal is political and academic too, for it combines my personal experience as a former model with academic research and a critical standpoint.
Jim Strang talks about how Edinburgh became home, his love for his degree and his wide and varied career after graduation.
I actually enrolled to read a very different degree from what I ended up with! I started out on the computer science and management science course but pretty quickly realised I preferred the business studies course to the computer lab.
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.
