Edinburgh Dental Institute

Visiting Students and Academics

As a leading higher education institution, Edinburgh Dental Institute and the University welcomes and encourages visiting dental professionals and academic students.

Whilst we look forward to welcoming visitors to Edinburgh Dental Institute, visits can take a lot of planning and preparation from both parties.

As a first step we encourage all visitors to make contact with us via our general email address:   epdi@ed.ac.uk

Please outline the following:
  • What is the purpose of your visit?
  • Where is your affiliated Institution?
  • What area of expertise do you want to study during your visit?
  • How long would you like to stay with us?
  • How much funding do you have?
  • What visa requirements will you require?
  • Where will you stay during your visit?

Please take time to consider all aspects of visiting Edinburgh as this will help you in preparing your application to come to visit.
