The University of Edinburgh is a founding member of the Eurolife Network of European Universities in Life Sciences, a consortium of nine leading research driven European universities committed to the highest standards of research and education in the life and health sciences. It seeks to facilitate student exchanges, research collaboration and other links.
Membership of Eurolife provides multiple benefits:
- Mobility programme for undergraduate and masters students to undertake a 3 to 6 month research project at a partner institute
Postdoc Mobility and Knowledge Exchange programme for postdocorate researchers to visit a partner institute for a two week period
Eurolife Scholarship Programme for Early Career Researchers to undertake a research project for 3 to 6 months at a partner institute
Opportunity to attend annual summer and winter schools
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.
