Conrad Cardona

Conrad Cardona is in his second year in the School of Informatics studying BSc Computer Science and Mathematics.

"I was drawn to Edinburgh because I was looking for a university that was ranked as one of the best in my field of study and had an international-friendly environment. The University of Edinburgh accomplished all of this, including being in one of the most beautiful cities in Europe."

My student experience

"The best thing about the student life is being able to approach people from around the world, taking part in all kinds of societies and especially having my moral code as the only limit.

"One of the things I like most about studying in Edinburgh is ironically, the weather. After eighteen years under the hot sun, a bit of rain is always welcome. Also, the international feeling you can experience just by being around George Square or any University building is fantastic."

Around 100,000 students call Edinburgh home, giving the city a unique buzz and ensuring you’ll be in good company. Discover more about student life at Edinburgh.

My programme

"The best thing about my programme are the interactive lectures in the School of Mathematics. We answer the lecturer’s questions with an app and if the results are not clear we discuss with the people around us. I also enjoy the opposite in the computer science courses, where independent learning is a key aspect.

"So far, my favourite course has been Proofs and Problem Solving. In this course we learn to love maths for the sake of maths: a very good introduction to all the basics needed for the following years."
