Student Recruitment & Admissions
Edinburgh. Extraordinary futures await.

About us

Student Recruitment and Admissions (SRA) leads the design, development and implementation of the University of Edinburgh’s strategy for student recruitment, admissions, pre-arrival and induction, and widening participation.

SRA is one of a number of key services within the University Secretary’s Group (USG). Together with Edinburgh Global, we are part of the portfolio led by Alan Mackay, Deputy Vice Principal International. We contribute to two core University strategies: the Student Recruitment Strategy and the Widening Participation Strategy.

Student Recruitment Strategy

Widening Participation Strategy

We support the implementation of these strategies in two ways:

  • Our teams deliver a range of core, University-wide activities;
  • We lead and co-ordinate the delivery of aspects of the strategies where there is shared responsibility with Schools, Colleges and Support Group services.

Working in partnership with colleagues across the University is at the heart of what we do. Visit our team pages to find out more about ways we can work together. To learn more about our approach, you can view our Mission, Vision and Values.
