These inspiring images show the different ways our students carry impressions of Edinburgh with them, wherever they are in the world. In this challenging year they have shared some thoughtful and beautiful images which we are delighted to share.
Students were invited to enter in one of four categories: in the city; people and community; thinking ahead; and around the world.
The annual competition is open to current international students, students who have had a Go Abroad experience and online learners outside the UK.
An online exhibition on the Edinburgh Global website showcases the competition entries.
A physical exhibition in Old College Quad is planned for Spring 2021 – If public health restrictions allow.
