Your time at the University

Wei Cao

I studied Artificial Intelligence at the University of Edinburgh in 2010. I had struggled in choosing a university for my masters, but the experience of studying in Edinburgh tells me I made the right decision. The University of Edinburgh is not only a world leading university, but also a multicultural and entertaining place.

You can find top-level teachers, great facilities, various social events, the Edinburgh Festival, beautiful city views and even more to explore here.

Tell us about your Experiences since leaving the University

After my graduation, I decided to find a job in Edinburgh, as I liked the city so much. It was not easy to find a job but after 5 months of hunting I was offered one as a software programmer with a company founded by some graduates from the University of Edinburgh. Now all of the employees are Edinburgh graduates.

It was not only the University’s good reputation that helped in my job hunt but also the great networking opportunities it provided.
