Information on the New Student Pledge - Welcome Week 2017
University is a time for trying new things and developing as a person. One way we encourage new students to do this is to think now, at the start, about what you want to achieve while you are here. We would like you to make a promise to yourself about pursuing your aspirations and to record your pledge on the cards that are available throughout your first week here. Your pledge card will be sent back to you in a few months’ time to reflect on how much you have grown and learned since you made it.
Your goal can be big or it can be small. If you are joining us on a virtual programme, you might want to pledge that you will engage with the University through social media, or you might want to actively participate in the online community. If you’re joining us on campus you might want to meet people from 5 different countries or volunteer in the city of Edinburgh. Equally your pledge might be to take the opportunity to study abroad or find an internship at a company that you have always dreamed about. No matter what it is, we want to know!
Whatever you pledge, it marks the beginning of your university experience, when anything seems possible!
During Welcome Week (Sat 9th September - Fri 15th September only):
More information on how you can make your own New Student Pledge will appear on this age in the near future.
