Coronavirus (Covid-19) updates for staff and students

Travelling to Scotland

If you are unable to travel to Edinburgh in September you will still be able to start your degree digitally and join us later.

We want you to join us in Edinburgh as soon as you can, if you can be on campus from September then you should. We will be open and ready to teach at the start of the new academic year on 21 September 2020.

We want everyone to come to Edinburgh, but we understand that travel restrictions might make that difficult.
