Events for new students
Find out about all of the events on offer when you start University!
The University of Edinburgh hosts many events for new students starting here throughout the year. These include events organised for all students starting for Welcome Week in September each year, visiting students starting in January each year and Postgraduate students starting mid-semester.
The events organised for new students are designed to give you the vital information that you need to get started, to help you meet others in your academic area and also socially and give you the opportunity to get to know the city.
There are three different types of events for new students:
- University of Edinburgh welcome and information events (details of all events below)
- Welcome events organised by your school (you will be alerted of this by direct communication from your school)
- Students' Association events
All events can be found on the University of Edinburgh Events app (more information below)
