Coffee shops seem to be abundant in Edinburgh! You can literally find one on every street. That said, not all are equally equipped for students (I’m looking at you, non-wifi coffee shops). I’ve put together a list of my top 5 coffee shops around the University of Edinburgh that have everything a student needs: wifi, coffee, food, and space!
When I heard about the Production Game for the first time in the academic welcome session, little did I know that I would be spending a lot of my time working on it. It is one of the most happening academic events in the Business School.
Choosing your accommodation is a big consideration when your moving to Edinburgh for the first time. I opted for student accommodation. Here’s how it has worked out for me.
From an early age, I have been obsessed with British movies and TV shows. James Bond, Downton Abbey and Kingsman are the perfect example of the traditional British style – the aroma of coffee, the hat on the head and the umbrella in the hand are what spring to mind when I picture a British gentleman. Next, I would like to introduce you to three brands that have stolen British’s heart.
I am half way through semester one of the International Business & Emerging Markets programme. I have learnt that one of the amazing things about studying a postgraduate degree here is the rich international environment and the diverse range of opportunities that students have access to.
At the Business School we are given lots of opportunity to learn about the real-world of business and equip ourselves with relevant skills. In this blog, I would like to share what we got up to on an exciting trip to the Green Investment Bank.
Back in China, we have various types of cooking styles and different seasonings. Many people have joked that the best food in the UK is the food from other countries. Although this is untrue, there are many nice restaurants in Edinburgh that serve authentic food from countries like Mexico, India and Italy. After spending more than a month in Edinburgh, I have discovered several ways to satisfy your appetite perfectly.
My experience of living in Edinburgh and studying at the Business School reminds me a bit of the anime feature, Kiki’s Delivery Service. I have also found myself reminiscing about similar journeys I have made in the past, while collecting new memories and keepsakes so that I won’t forget my time here.
Some of the first questions that I had when I applied to the University of Edinburgh Business School included, ‘how did previous students do?’ and ‘did they all get good jobs?’ We recently met with alumni from different graduating years to find out.
Meeting new people is exciting. And you’ll meet lots of new people whose accomplishments will blow you away in your first weeks in Edinburgh. Everyone I’ve met seems to be trilingual and has completed double degrees and/or has come from an impressive career. I’m sure I will learn a lot from the diverse perspectives and experiences my fellow students will bring to the table this year.
