Diverse Edinburgh

Photographs by our international students reveal what diversity in Edinburgh means to them.

Calton Hill

The University's International Office holds an annual photography competition for international students.

The theme of this year's competition was "Diverse Edinburgh".

Students were asked to think about the city, the people, the places, the opportunities, the culture and the University, and to choose one category in which to illustrate diversity.

The competition was open to all current international students at the University of Edinburgh.

One category was open to current online distance learning students outside of the UK and students who are on, or have been on, a 'Go Abroad' experience or exchange.
