Welcome to Edinburgh

We’re getting ready to welcome you to Edinburgh in September and have already welcomed many students from China to study pre-sessional English programmes over the past few months.

We spoke to some of our students who have recently arrived in Edinburgh about their experience of travelling to Scotland and the Covid safety measures around the city and campus. 

We are working hard to ensure all our students and staff feel as safe as possible on campus and we can’t wait for you to join us.
