Campus visit

The campus visit includes a student-led campus tour and an information session, and is ideal for those who are unable to attend an Open Day.

Campus visits suspended

Here at the University of Edinburgh our priority is the health and wellbeing of our students, staff, and visitors.

The University is now operating "essential-services" only, therefore Campus Visits are cancelled until further notice. We are sorry we will not be able to welcome you to campus in the short term, but look forward to welcoming you in the future. In the meantime, we'd love to see you in our live "Introduction to the University" online information sessions. 

Please consult our Covid-19 webpages, which we are updating regularly, for detailed advice and support.

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.

In order to facilitate online bookings for our events, e.g. Open Days, online information sessions, etc we use GeckoEngage - a third party service which is not operated by the University of Edinburgh. Details of GeckoEngage’s privacy policy can be found at:
