For students

Services available during COVID-19 pandemic

We have events, courses and other resources you can access any time, from anywhere.

Edinburgh Innovations and Covid-19 pandemic

We have had to make substantial changes to our working practices in response to the Covid-19 pandemic, in line with the Government guidelines and the University of Edinburgh policies. However, we are continuing to offer a full range of services to students – see below.

Online resources 

A number of online, free resources from the University of Edinburgh and beyond have been collated in one place to help you develop your skills and ideas and find support for mental health and wellbeing. This includes courses on Learn and links to external organisations such as Google Garage, HubSpot Academy and more.
