Meet Us

If you would like to know more about studying with us, then have a chat to our staff by attending one of our visit events or meeting us in your country.

Virtual events

School virtual events

These interactive online sessions include a presentation from a member of academic staff within the School and a question and answer session.  Presentations include information on living in Edinburgh, the degree structures and courses, accommodation and student facilities.

Each session has a duration of around 1 hour.  These sessions are open to anyone who is considering studying here, or has already received an offer to study here. 

These sessions are hosted on Blackboard’s Collaborate Ultra.  All you need is a computer and an internet connection.  You do not need a web cam or microphone as questions can be asked via a text chat box.

Virtual events will take place:

  • Monday 29 January 2018 10.00am or 16.00pm GMT
  • Monday 19 March 2018 10.00am or 16.00pm GMT

Planned industrial action

As you may be aware, a large proportion of universities in the UK will experience industrial action in the coming weeks. The post-offer visit days for the School of Physics and Astronomy which fall on 26th February and 12th March coincide with dates where industrial action is planned. These events will still be going ahead, however we would like to assure you that we are working hard to ensure that any impact on your visit will be minimised. If you would prefer not to attend a post-offer visit day on these dates, please get in touch with us and we will do our best to find an alternative date for you:

You can find more information about the industrial action on our Student Administration website.
