Campus visit

We anticipate Campus visits with student-led tours will resume later this year, in the meantime please download our self-guided audio tour.

Self-guided tours now available

As Covid-19 travel restrictions in Scotland are gradually being lifted, we are looking forward to seeing more visitors returning to the city of Edinburgh over the summer period.

At the University of Edinburgh our priority is the health and wellbeing of our students, staff, and visitors, and during this period the University will be prioritising learning and teaching activity on campus.

Sadly this means that we are not yet able to meet with you and introduce you to the University in person, although we are working towards reintroducing the Campus Visit later in the year.

If you do plan to visit the city of Edinburgh over the summer however, we are pleased to confirm that we are now able to offer self-guided audio tours of both the George Square and King's Buildings campuses. The tour does not need to be booked in advance, is easy to download to your phone, and will allow you to take the tour at a time that suits you.

We also continue to offer lots of ways for you to find out more about the University, and studying with us at Edinburgh from the comfort of your own home:

Online information sessions 

We are running a range of online events that you can access wherever you are in the world. Many of these events will be relevant for everyone, no matter if you're interested in undergraduate or postgraduate studies or where you are in your application journey. But we recommend you keep an eye on this calendar of events because from time to time we will add subject-specific events, support services talks, and level of study specific sessions.  

You can view the event details and book on to the sessions below. Please use the tags to select sessions appropriate to your study level of interest:  PG indicates postgraduate, UG indicates undergraduate.


Some of these sessions may be recorded. If they are being recorded you will be told about this prior to the recording starting during the session. Any information that you provide during a session is optional and in doing so you give us consent to process this information.

Recorded sessions will be stored by the University of Edinburgh for one year and published on our website during that time.

By taking part in a session you give us your consent to process any information you provide during it.
