Information for parents

Offer holders' information evenings

Details on our information sessions for offer holders and their Parents / Carers

The University of Edinburgh will be running a series of information evenings for offer holders and Parents / Carers in March and April 2018.

The events are designed to provide information about the University and the city of Edinburgh, in order to help offer support through the next stages of the application and decision making process.

The events will be held in a number of major UK cities, and are designed to complement the Post Offer Visiting Days held at the University during this period.

Invitations and information about how to book a place will be sent directly to those students who receive an offer of a place for September 2018.

Please note that places for these events are limited, so we would ask that any person receiving an invitation from the University does not forward this on to anyone else.

Our sessions will include:

  • An Introduction to the University of Edinburgh and our curriculum
  • Making the transition to university (including support, accommodation and bursaries)
  • The student experience in our university and city.

All sessions run to the following schedule:

6.30pm - venue open (tea and coffee available on arrival)

7.00pm - Event starts

8.30pm - Event finish

Sessions for the 2017/18 application cycle will run in the following cities:
