Download the University of Edinburgh Events App
The University of Edinburgh Events app is available to download now. It is an easy way for you to browse all of the information and events designed specifically for new students
The app allows you to browse events happening before and during Welcome Week. If you see something that interests you then you can add it to your own schedule within the app.
The 'schedule' doesn't commit you to attending, nor does it book you a place if booking is required, but it does allow you to keep track of the events that interest you so that you can make the most of your time.
The app also allows you to add tasks to your own personal to-do list, which you can tick off as you go. Don't worry if you're not sure what tasks you need to complete, the app contains that information too!
The events app was a super easy way to navigate what was on and specifically find what interested me.

3. How to use your guide
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. Here's our recommended road map for using the guide.
The Welcome Week events in January will be launched on the app in December.
First stop - New student guidance
Here you will find out more about the Top 6 task and recommended tasks. You can also add them to your own To-do list to keep track of what needs done.
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!
Second stop - Degree-Related events
Here you will find information about induction activities related to your degree. Look out for 'ESSENTIAL' in the event title as this means attendance is mandatory. Add them to ‘My Schedule’ so that you don’t forget!
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)
Third stop - Full Calendar of Events
Here’s where you find all the fun stuff. There are a lot of events in this calendar so it’s a good idea to use the filter function to narrow it down. You can add any that interest you to ‘My Schedule’.
Adding an event to your schedule doesn't mean you must attend, nor does it book you a place if booking is required, but it does allow you to keep track of the events that interest you so that you can make the most of your time.
