Linguistics and English Language

International & visiting students

We welcome students from across the globe to the School of Philosophy, Psychology & Language Sciences each year. We currently have over 60 countries represented studying with us at undergraduate level.

The biggest challenge for me is getting used to how accessible all of my tutors, lecturers, and faculty are. I have a very interactive relationship with many of the teaching staff. I struggled getting over how informal teaching was in Edinburgh compared to America, but that's not a bad thing! I feel so comfortable asking for help or chatting to my lecturers about their lectures and subject.
