Wellbeing & support

We support your learning and wellbeing throughout your academic journey.



Our Student Support Team

The BMTO Student Support Team are available to help all our undergraduate and postgraduate taught students whether on-campus here in Edinburgh or studying remotely.

Academic Families

When entering university for the first time you may have lots of questions – finding answers from students already on your programme is one way to help you quickly settle into your new life and make the most of your time at Edinburgh.

Academic guidance

Our academic policies help you follow the rules, develop good working habits and communicate with us during your academic journey.


You can feed back in a number of ways to us, and in turn we do our best to listen and to implement real change. We can also help you to lift your voice through a variety of channels.
