Take part in Go Connect

Register for a hospitality scheme that helps international students connect with local people.

Go Connect matches international students with people from the local community to help them settle into university life, learn more about Scotland and enhance their experience of studying here.

Due to the ever-increasing popularity of the scheme, the International Office is looking to expand and need new hosts for the next academic year.

International students

The scheme is a highly rewarding and enriching opportunity to learn more about different cultures and ways of life.

Your commitment doesn't have to be large; it can be as simple as meeting for coffee once or twice. However, some hosts enjoy spending more time with their students, meet more regularly and going on trips around Edinburgh and Scotland.

If you would like to find out more about Go Connect, or to register as a host, please visit the Go Connect website or email
