Enhancing the Student Experience

New student videos

The Applicant Experience strand of the Student Experience Project is pleased to announce the development of two new student video resources.

Using the authentic student voice, both video resources aim to help prospective undergraduate and postgraduate applicants to make a more informed higher education decision, early in the application process, about applying to the University of Edinburgh.

Edinburgh is my perfect match because…

A student video competition, in partnership with EUSA, was piloted from October to November 2014. Students were asked to complete this sentence in a 30 second video clip: “Edinburgh is my perfect match because…”

The competition was completed in November and the videos have just been uploaded to EUSA’s Youtube site. Please see EUSA’s Youtube site and the Perfect Match Playlist for more details.

New undergraduate and postgraduate student interviews were produced into short video clips in March 2015. Topics include: ‘why choose the University of Edinburgh’, ‘the benefits of a four-year degree’, and ‘teaching methods and expectations at the University of Edinburgh.’

You can watch the videos on the University’s Youtube site on the Undergraduate or Postgraduate student videos playlists, or on the University website.
