Campus visit

Student-led tours are ideal for visitors to the city who want to find out more about student life and our campuses. We provide tours for both the Central Campus and King’s Buildings Campus.

Our campus visits are for potential undergraduates and postgraduates from all over the world,  interested in any subject. The focus of the tour is on what it is like to be a student at Edinburgh, but you will also be sent a recorded presentation to provide you with further information about the University.

The campus visit is free to attend, but you must book your space in advance. Family and friends are also welcome, however, due to limited capacity on the tours we kindly request only  one additional guest  accompanies you on the tour. This is in order to ensure there is availability for prospective students.

If you have travelled to visit us with more than one guest they are welcome to explore the University at their own pace using our self-guided audio tour.

Alternatively, our University has many wonderful cafes and a beautiful local area to walk around.

Please note that we are unable to offer detailed subject-specific information as part of this visit, and it will not include meetings with subject areas or potential supervisors.   

We will explore all options to avoid cancelling our tours, however there may be rare occasions where tours are cancelled at the last minute due to unforeseen circumstances. We are unable to accept liability for any costs incurred by visitors (e.g. travel, accommodation). You might want to consider travel insurance or flexible ticket.
