Student Recruitment & Admissions

Visits to our campus

We are now offering campus visits, self-guided audio tours, online information sessions and other alternatives.

Campus visits and Self-guided tours now available

As Covid-19 travel restrictions in Scotland have gradually been lifted, we have enjoyed seeing more visitors returning to the city of Edinburgh and to our University.

At the University of Edinburgh our priority is the health and wellbeing of our students, staff, and visitors, and currently the University are prioritising learning and teaching activity on campus.

However we are offering our in-person campus visits. These include a student-led campus tour, a supporting information video emailed prior to attendance and tailored onward signposting to points of interest in and around Edinburgh.

We are also offering self-guided audio tours of both the George Square and King's Buildings campuses. The tour does not need to be booked in advance, is easy to download to a phone, and will allow visitors to take the tour at a time that suits them.

We also continue to offer lots of ways for students to find out more about the University, and studying with us at Edinburgh from the comfort of their own home:
