Celtic and Scottish Studies

Information for offer holders on single and joint honours degree programmes involving Celtic, Scottish Ethnology and Scottish Studies. Fàilte!

Welcome from Professor Jeremy Robbins, Head of School


Thank you for applying for a programme in the subject areas of Celtic, Scottish Ethnology and Scottish Studies. Congratulations on receiving your offer! I’m delighted that you are interested in studying with us, and we very much hope that you will join our community.

Based in Scotland’s capital, the School of Literatures, Languages and Cultures (LLC) is the ideal place to study the Scottish and Celtic nations. We are proud to be the home of the oldest department of Celtic in Scotland.

Our students and graduates tell us that they value the School’s friendliness, the connections they have made here, and the in-depth guidance of our staff, who are experts in their field and passionate about what they do. They also tell us they love the city of Edinburgh and what it has to offer.

If you’re thinking about taking a language pathway through our Celtic programme and have little experience in Scottish Gaelic, don’t worry - we specialise in teaching students from scratch so, whatever your existing level, you will be in good hands. If you’re doing a programme in Scottish Ethnology, or Scottish Studies, it’s also possible to learn Gaelic as part of your studies. It’s totally up to you.

We're based at the heart of the University of Edinburgh’s Central Area, just across George Square from the School of Scottish Studies Archives, a fantastic resource which we are really keen to share with you.  

We’ve provided as much information as we can here to help you on your way to choosing the right university for you.

Good luck, and we hope to see you in September.
