Alumni Services


The digital magazine for Edinburgh graduates that takes a deep dive into the stories that matter.

Enlightened 2022
Editions of Enlightened published in 2022.


Enlightened was relaunched in 2022 and is a response to feedback from our alumni community.

In our new digital publication we take time to explore issues in depth. We respond to current areas of discussion and debate and attempt to reflect the diverse and wide-ranging interests of our global Edinburgh community. Enlightened is not who we are, it is where we are going.

We aim to publish four editions each year but if a story isn't ready to be told we give it time and space to develop. In a rapidly changing culture of fast news and even faster opinions, we take our time to listen, reflect, observe and understand.
