Introductions: the game of the name

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.

It’s never too late to change yourself – thanks to the Edinburgh Award!

Exploring your self awareness is a lifelong journey and I have come to realise that it is never too late to change things about yourself. After participating in the Edinburgh Award, which supports students to become more self-aware, I have experienced some magical changes and have truly benefited from my increased sense of self-awareness.

“How I overcame challenges with a UEBS coach”

You can learn a lot from the academic environment at the School, but to be a successful business person, you’ll need to develop the right personal skills as well. Coaching is one of the key ways that we will help you nurture your talent to help you achieve your personal and professional goals, improve your performance at the School and in your future career.

Preparing our students for their future careers

As a prospective student, you will be keen to find out about the career support offered at the Business Schools you are interested in.  It’s an area we’ve invested in heavily in recent years, and with the creation of our dedicated Student Development Team, we offer a comprehensive programme of professional development throughout the academic year.
