Open days, events and visits
Edinburgh: Extraordinary futures await.


Some of our live sessions may be hosted through Zoom. Zoom is a cloud platform for video and audio conferencing, chat, and webinars.

You will need:

  • Your link to the session.
    • This link will be available through your e-ticket which can be found via your booking confirmation or event reminder emails.. You will not need to download Zoom software to your device as the link will open in your browser (you may wish to right click to open the link in a new browser tab).

Check your setup and get to know Zoom

Test your microphone, camera and preferences etc, plus get a feel for the Zoom interface. Please note these links will take you to external website from Zoom.

Joining the session

  1. Join through your event link. As noted above, this will be through your booking confirmation or event reminder emails.
  2. Enter a name (this doesn’t have to be your actual name if you do not want it disclosed in the chat or session recordings) to access the session. We ask for this so we can see who is taking part in-session, and direct answers to questions to the right person.  

    Note regarding Zoom sessions

    If your session is hosted in Zoom, you may need a passcode to join it and you will be able to find this information when you click on the session in your e-Ticket.  

During the session

During the session, staff from the School or department will be on hand to answer any questions you might have. Please follow their lead for etiquette.
