Alumni Services

November 2012 | Alumni Profiles

This month's selection includes a lot of love for the city of Edinburgh. The Meadows in summer, the views from Arthur's Seat and Calton Hill and the first impressions that led to further exploration by way of the University.

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.
