The University and Europe


Information for prospective undergraduate and postgraduate students who are from the EU and/or are planning a European exchange as part of their studies, and students who are planning an Erasmus+ exchange to Edinburgh.

Edinburgh is a truly global university, so at this time it’s especially important that we emphasise our ongoing commitment to international diversity and a community in which students and staff continue to feel valued and welcome.

Amid the continued uncertainty surrounding the UK’s withdrawal from the EU, we understand our prospective students – whether from the UK, the EU or outside the EU – will have questions. 

It is crucial that you feel informed and supported throughout what many will find an unsettling period. Information for prospective students is available below, which answers many of the concerns that have already been raised around living and studying in the UK post-Brexit, fees and funding, travel and visas, Erasmus+, and insurance.
