New Students

'How-to' online information sessions

Our online 'How-to' information sessions are a great way to prepare to join the University of Edinburgh with practical information shared from a variety of professional support services. 

These short bite-sized online 'How-to' information sessions will help you connect with professional support staff and learn key information relevant to starting your student journey at the University of Edinburgh. This year we have broken the videos into themes to help you navigate through them.

How to Sessions for 2022-2023 are currently being organised. Information on how to book on for Live sessions and how to access  pre recorded sessions will be released in August 2022.

These sessions are designed to give you information on the practical aspects of starting University but also to provide you with an opportunity to ask questions if you wish.

The sessions will either be pre recorded or Live sessions. 

Live Sessions

These sessions will be Live online and will be approximately 30-minutes, including a 10-15 minute presentation followed by a Q&A session.  You would not be required to turn on your camera or microphone as you will be typing your questions/comments into the chat text box for the presenters. 

Don't worry though if you miss a live session, they will all be made available afterwards.

Pre Recorded Sessions 

These sessions are recorded prior to your arrival and will be made available to you to watch whenever you wish.

We will also aim to have contact emails for all those creating pre recorded sessions, so if you do have a question you can contact the right person.
