If you apply to study with us, over the summer we run events to help you find out more about being a student in the School of Biological Sciences and more widely about student life at the University of Edinburgh.
Take a look around the University with our Virtual Visit. Discover the School buildings, libraries and points of interest, and get a feel for what it's like to study and live in Edinburgh.
Student-led guided tours
The University offers general student-led guided tours on Mondays, Fridays and Saturdays for potential students and their supporters to visit the King's Buildings Campus.
If you would like to look around the University at your own pace, the Student Recruitment and Admissions team have created a Self-guided tour leaflet and a Self-guided audio tour. These give a general introduction to the University and our campus buildings. Both can be downloaded from the University's website.
