As an incoming student you will quickly learn that the first week before classes officially starts is called Welcome Week; a week packed with numerous events and lots of fun. Here are the events I would highly recommend to every incoming student.
It’s my first day in Edinburgh. Elaine in Edinburgh, there’s a nice ring to that! As I wake up in my bed among the spartan furniture of my improvised bedroom, I suddenly become fully aware that this is the place I have committed to live in for at least a year.
Welcome Week is the University of Edinburgh’s official way of welcoming its new students. Lots of events take place throughout the week at different venues. Some of these, such as the School events, are mandatory to attend, while many others that are organised by different societies, are optional.
There were many factors that led me to choose the Masters in International Business and Emerging Markets (IBEM). However I believe that you cannot really judge a thing fully until you have experienced it. The first week of IBEM is already over and it has given me a lot to think about. Here are my thoughts about the programme so far.
