Welcoming you back

Information for current students

We are continuing to support our students during their studies and are looking forward to welcoming you back to the University of Edinburgh in September. These pages will provide you with the key information you will need, whether you are currently carrying out studies at home, are returning to the city, or are looking for guidance on the 2020/21 academic year.

Stay safe and protect each other during the Covid-19 pandemic

Don't forget to let the University know if you need to self-isolate. You can find out how to do this, along with guidance and support if you are self-isolating, on our dedicated webpages.

What to do if you need to self-isolate

Our Good Citizen Guide provides details on the Covid-19 guidelines in Scotland, what is expected of our students, how to report breaches to the University, and how failure to comply with these guidelines will be dealt with, including possible disciplinary action.
