This guide has two functions, to search for events before and during Welcome Week and to help you find all of the support and information you need to get started. 

  • Check out the New student guidance to help organise your to-do list, including information on how to complete your Top 6 Tasks
  • Learn more about what services are available to support you during your studies in the Student Support Services section. Don't be afraid to ask for help!
  • Check out the Discover Edinburgh section where maps, self-guided tours and top tips will help you start to get your bearings in this wonderful city.
  • Go to Degree-related events to find any school induction activities relevant to you, then visit Events & workshops for events happening across the University, from society tasters to information sessions on how to use the library.
  • Add activities to Your Schedule as a handy reminder of things you definitely want to attend.
  • *you are not registered on any activity by adding it to your schedule* please follow all instructions about how to attend the event (which may require you to sign up to attend and/or purchase tickets)
  • Make sure you prioritise essential events hosted by your School/Programme (check your university email from mid-August to find out more info about your events).
  • Joint honours students - make sure you find your induction events for both degree programmes. If your induction activities for different courses clash, prioritise attending induction for your core subject (core subject is the first subject stated in your degree - eg Psychology and Sociology; attend psychology welcome first if events clash)
