Student Recruitment and Admissions (SRA) at the University provides a range of targeted services to secondary schools and colleges.

The Student Ambassador Scheme is a student employment programme which brings together a diverse cohort of undergraduate and postgraduate students to support the university in recruitment and outreach activities.

Please note:

As Coronavirus restrictions ease, the University is prioritising the return to campus of student-facing staff, in order to deliver the best possible experience for new and returning students. Some of our staff will be returning to work partially on campus, though many of our core services to prospective students and their advisers will continue to be delivered digitally.

If you are a University of Edinburgh staff member: It’s best to contact individual members of the SRA team via email. 

If you are a prospective student: It’s best to contact us using the enquiry form on our 'contact us' page.
