This short film highlights the support available to you during your online degree.


Video Transcript: 

At the University of Edinburgh, you'll have access to a range of services that will support all aspects of your online journey with us,  helping you achieve your goals. 

Just like campus-based students, you will be supported academically by your personal tutor, who can be contacted by email, telephone or live internet call.

You will become a member of a global virtual community,  studying alongside other students sharing their own ideas and experiences. This community will offer valuable support to you in your studies. 

You will get free access to an extensive portfolio of personal and professional development courses on, as well as access to a wide range of online courses designed to support your academic growth.

No matter where you're studying from, you'll be able to tap into one of the largest academic libraries in the world, home to more than 400,000 ebooks and 60,000 ejournals.

Many of our online students are seeking new opportunities within their career.  Our careers consultants can offer advice and support, whatever your plans. 

And to ensure things go as smoothly as possible, technical support is available 24 hours a day, so any issues can be resolved quickly and efficiently.
