At present the University of Edinburgh has agreed: 

  • to receive up  to two students per academic year  from other Eurolife universities;  and  
  • to send up to two students per academic year  from the University of Edinburgh.

The Eurolife student exchange agreement pre-dates the introduction of tuition fees in Scotland so no tuition fees are payable for approved Eurolife exchange visits to the University of Edinburgh.
