Our selection process
How our colleges and schools select undergraduate students.
How we select
We assess applications against agreed selection criteria for each degree.
Making offers to applicants
An offer to study at Edinburgh will be either 'conditional' or 'unconditional'.
Information on widening access applicants and admissions.
Interviews, tests and portfolios
Interviews and admissions tests do not normally form part of our admissions process, but there are some exceptions for specific programmes.
Our statistics detail the numbers of applications we receive, what offers we make and the number of these offers that are accepted.
Criminal records checks
We require criminal records checks for a small number of degrees that lead to professions working with children or vulnerable adults.
