The Insights Programme

Our Insights Programme helps Widening Participation students develop the confidence, skills and connections to consider a range of careers through introductions to Edinburgh alumni working in an exciting range of sectors and environments. 

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the University decided to re-design the 2020 Insights Programme to be exclusively online. The Insights Online Week will run again in February and June 2021 and we will update the website with additional plans for the future of the Programme as soon as this is finalised, in line with the University’s policy for student work placements and overseas travel.
