Student exchanges

Regional Sessions

Aimed at second year undergraduate students, the sessions aim to cover key practical and cultural information about various regions which may be useful when considering potential exchange destinations.

In the sessions, you will get to hear from former Edinburgh exchange students, who'll share their experiences of studying in the target regions, as well as top tips to know before you go.


The schedule for the regional sessions is as follows:

Region Date Time Session booking
Australia & New Zealand Friday 9 October 11am – 12 noon (BST) Book session
Asia Friday 16 October 11am – 12 noon (BST) Book session
USA & Canada Friday 23  October 11am – 12 noon (BST) Book session
Latin America Friday 30 October 11am – 12 noon (GMT) Book session
Europe Friday 6 November 11am – 12 noon (GMT) Book session

All sessions will take place via Zoom. After you have booked, you will receive joining instructions via email a week before the session, and again the day before.


Regional promotions – social media

In the week after each session, we will be delivering a variety of region-themed promotions across our social media channels. These will include:

  • Instagram takeovers & Instagram live events (including Q&A sessions with returned exchange students
  • sharing top-tips, photos and blog posts on Facebook

These activities will be run by previous exchange students and they will give you an insight into what it’s like to study in each of our regions from a student perspective. Check them out and get involved!
