Welcome and Orientation
In association with the Students’ Association, the University of Edinburgh welcomes you to the ‘Taste of Scotland’ on Wednesday 9th January. This evening event welcomes new students joining the University of Edinburgh to become immersed into Scottish culture and learn more about Scotland.
