'How-to' online information sessions

Our online 'How-to' information sessions are a great way to prepare to get started this year with practical information shared from a variety of professional support services. 

Starting your degree will be both exciting and challenging. Watch these short bite-sized How-to' online sessions to help you connect with professional support staff and discover key information relevant to starting your student journey at the University of Edinburgh, including how to how to meet people, how to settle in, or how to get used to academic work at University level. 

Some sessions will be specific to Undergraduates or Postgraduates (this will be clearly outlined in the title) but most sessions will be applicable to all students. 

 

*Please note the following How To session recordings are relevant for all students returning or starting in January 2021.

**If you will be starting your studies and joining us later this year, we will be running new How-to sessions, and information about these sessions will be available in the summer.
