CEID Student Society

The CEID Student Society was established in December 2019 and is one of the few student societies driven by post-graduate students. Open to all students and staff, the Society hosts a range of social, academic, and networking events. This year the Society has three main goals.

  1. EXPAND the network: Raise awareness of issues around CEID among the students by promoting EDTalks delivered by professionals in our field. By organizing different outdoor and remote social activities, create a sense of community among students who are interested in CEID.
  2. SUPPORT members: Help members grow their professional/academic careers by building a greater bridge between masters, PhD students and University of Edinburgh staff, supporting research projects and sharing career opportunities across the community.
  3. COOPERATE with different NGOs and societies: Set up relationships between NGOs and other societies involved in education and development by organizing different opportunities for people to hear about and be involved with their work.
