Studying

Parent/Partner Guide

Starting university is an exciting time for any new student but it can also be a time of uncertainty. If you are a parent/ carer/ partner it can be a challenging experience for you too.

At Edinburgh we value your vital supporting role and welcome you as part of the University community.

Naturally, as a parent you want your son or daughter to enjoy their independence. You will also want to ensure that the university they choose provides a supportive, safe environment as well as an excellent education in preparation for their chosen career.

At Edinburgh, we are committed to providing as much support and advice as possible to both students and parents/ carers / partners through the University application process.
