I still remember the day I received my offer letter from the University of Edinburgh. I was jubilant and super excited to begin my Master’s programme. Having lived in Delhi, India, for 22 years I knew it was time to explore the world.
Welcome Week at the Business School is packed full of activities that will help you get to know the city of Edinburgh and your classmates better. Here are my favourite bits!
The diversity of Edinburgh’s architecture, culture and history makes for some spectacular photo opportunities. If you have never visited the city before, there are numerous Instagram accounts that capture the beauty of Edinburgh perfectly, showing the city off in all its splendour. Here are some of our favourites!
Last year, Marie Aldebert, from France, graduated from the Business School, adding a Masters in Management to her academic achievements.
We caught up with her to find out more about her year at the school, the best thing about living in the UK, and what surprised her most about the Business School experience.
Time flies! It is hard to believe that we are at the end of semester 1. Dealing with the pile of essays and exams at this time of year can be hard. In Edinburgh however, you will find some good places to go to relax, have a bit of fun and relieve the stress. Here are my top 4 places to visit in Edinburgh at Christmas time.
This is my first time in Edinburgh. Before I arrived here for my Masters course, Edinburgh was just a name on the world map. Having been here for a few weeks, I have fallen in love with the city and it never ceases to surprise me. Here are my observations from my first few weeks in Edinburgh.
Whether you have been living in Edinburgh for years, arrived recently to start university, or have yet to visit the city, there are things that you will probably have heard about such as Hogmanay, the Fringe Festival, the Elephant House Café where Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s stone was written etc. However, there are also some little gems of knowledge that you discover as you walk around the city. Here are 5 things that you might not have heard about.
When I first came to Edinburgh I felt overwhelmed by this city, with its mystic charm, old buildings and beautiful nature all around. Edinburgh has a way of making you feel at home very quickly, and there are many things about the city that make student life here an experience not to miss.
That’s it! You study at the University of Edinburgh, you learn about the world, meet so many different people and live in a city rich in history and culture. Still, the first thing that people talk about when they hear you study in Scotland (or the United Kingdom for that matter) is the weather. Like many of us are finding, the weather here is not as bad as the reputation it holds. If you are planning on moving to Edinburgh or just interested in having a quick “weather talk”, this post is for you.
To kick off Semester 2 the MSc Finance and Investment class embarked upon on a Financial History Tour across the city. As the third largest financial centre in the UK you can imagine there was quite a bit to cover!
