Tours of the Medical School

We do not offer tours of the Medical School for confidentiality and security reasons.

However, Student Recruitment and Admissions organise campus tours which include a tour of the Old Medical School at Teviot Place and around George Square. Teaching in the early years frequently takes place in these areas.
