Enhancing the Student Experience

Enhancing recruitment and admissions

Student Recruitment and Admissions offers information, advice and support to enquirers, applicants and students from the UK and the EU and supports the University in its strategic objectives on student recruitment, admissions and widening participation.

Information sessions

Our expanded programme of online, interactive sessions for prospective postgraduate students now includes a range of sessions over the summer to help students prepare for life at Edinburgh.

We have introduced an app for smartphones and tablets that enables prospective students to plan their day and find their way around campus. Over 3,000 people downloaded the app for the September 2014 Undergraduate Open Day.

Widening participation

The Widening Horizons Initiative, a programme designed to give widening participation students a taste of study abroad in first year, has been shortlisted for THE Widening Participation Project of the Year 2014.
