The events are run by the Edinburgh University Students' Association (EUSA) or student-run societies.

Gordon Aikman, Edinburgh Student Festival Director and EUSA Vice President Societies and Activities, said:

“Being at University is about so much more than getting a degree or letters after your name, it's about the whole package - experiencing student life - and the Student Festival is the ultimate celebration of this.

“The Student Festival gives students at the University of Edinburgh and other universities and colleges from across the city the opportunity to get involved in student societies and experience something new.”
