Students in a teaching environment.

The University of Edinburgh recognises that young people bring a wealth of talent, creativity and enthusiasm, critical now and for the future success of the University.

We have made an ongoing commitment to youth employment, acknowledging the critical impact it has on meeting the University’s strategic aims and objectives, including our Strategy 2030, Community Plan and People Strategy.   

The University is a Young Person’s Guarantee (YPG) employer and offers its Modern Apprentices an award-winning development and coaching programme.

If you are a manager looking to recruit a Modern Apprentice, please see our MA Recruiters Guide:
