FAQs

Frequently asked questions.

COVID-19 & FAQs

Recent events have required us all to adapt and respond quickly to change. This is why our Summer School 2022 courses are designed to be as flexible as necessary, when the time to deliver them comes.

We hope that you will be able to join us in Edinburgh and experience the city first-hand, but we’ve also designed our courses to be delivered remotely should the situation change suddenly.

We can’t see into the future, but we can assure you that our commitment to offering excellence in everything we do remains the same. The safety of our students will always be our priority, and with that in mind, we look forward to welcoming you to Edinburgh in the summer of 2022!

Will the Summer School 2022 be taught in-person?

We are planning to offer the UoE Summer School in person in summer 2022 and are working to ensure this can be managed safely and in line with any government and University guidelines at the time of delivery.
