How to study at university
We believe that the best learning experiences happen when all participants are actively engaged in working together. To help facilitate this partnership, we've developed a Student-Staff Charter.
Discover a World of Languages
Whether you want to study for credit (as part of your degree programme), or just to learn a new skill, we offer one of the widest range of language courses of any UK university.
If you're joining us to take a literature degree, or a degree involving a single language, an outside course in a completely different language makes for a great learning experience and demonstrates that you're a good communicator, a resilient problem solver, and someone open to other cultures and new ideas.
Our courses can open the door to more careers in more places around the globe - employers love to see them on a CV! There are lots of other benefits too, from making the most of student exchange opportunities to enhancing your social life in Edinburgh.
If you’ve got no language experience, it’s not a problem. Beginners are welcome.
Connect with the University of Edinburgh
The University's website for new students has lots more information about what to do just before and during the welcome period. The new EdHelp service is your place to ask any questions and the Facebook Group for new students is a great way to connect with people preparing to study on lots of different programmes across the University.
