Information for new postgraduates

We appreciate that our incoming students are likely to have questions - these pages have been created to try to answer as many of these as possible. If they don't, please do not hesitate to contact our friendly and knowledgeable professional services staff in the Graduate School Office and we will be happy to help you resolve your queries.

Welcome Week 2017 (Now includes slides from that week)

Thank you for choosing to study in the School of History, Classics and Archaeology at the University of Edinburgh. Our academic and administrative staff look forward to welcoming you to our academic community in the heart of beautiful, historic Edinburgh.

You can find out what courses are available now using our online tool, Path. You must meet with your Personal Tutor in Welcome Week to choose your courses.
