The 2 + 2 programme
The School of GeoSciences has an agreement with several Chinese universities which allows students to study a degree for two years in China, and then transfer to the University of Edinburgh to complete a further two years of study.
How does it work?
The 2+2 programme is a collaboration between Edinburgh University and your home university. You will complete the first two years of your undergraduate degree in one of our partner Chinese Universities. You will then come to Edinburgh to study for two more years, joining our current students on their degree programmes in third and fourth year.
On successful completion of the fourth year at Edinburgh, you will graduate with a Bachelor of Science (BSc) degree awarded by The University of Edinburgh.
Applications for 2022
We are accepting applications for entry to the programme in September 2022.
