LLC and the city
Edinburgh is a world-leading festival city filled with cinemas, theatres, galleries, libraries and collections.
The city's resources for studying literatures, languages and cultures are exceptional.
Many of them are located close to the University's Central Area, making them easy to access between classes.
We have worked with a number of these organisations on research, learning activities and outreach.
