Contact the Postgraduate Office

Welcome to the School of Literatures, Languages and Cultures Postgraduate Office.

The Postgraduate Office is your first point of contact if you are currently studying a postgraduate programme in the School of Literatures, Languages and Cultures (LLC).

Please note that since mid-March 2020, we have been working remotely as a response to the COVID-19 outbreak. We are working Monday to Friday between 9am and 5pm. We can’t answer any calls at this time, but you can email us at llc.postgrad@ed.ac.uk and one of us will get back to you as soon as we can. Thank you for your understanding and we hope you’re all keeping well.

Ordinarily, our office is located in Room 1.13, 50 George Square and is open Monday to Friday from 10am to 12pm, and from 2pm to 4pm for students to submit or collect assessments and ask us questions, although we’ll deal with urgent enquiries anytime between 9am and 5pm, Monday to Friday, if you knock on our door and enter when invited to do so.

If you are holding an offer to study with us...

Your enquiry is best answered by the College Admissions team. You can email the team at cahss.pgadmissions@ed.ac.uk.
