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.
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.
A new city, a new country, a new culture, a new language, new food and new people! All of it sounds interesting, as well as adventurous, but only those who have experienced it know that it also comes with a lot of challenges and learning.
I arrived in Edinburgh early in the evening. The first twenty four hours here passed by like a fleeting yet amazing film, which will be very difficult for me to forget.
So long did I dream about studying abroad that I still can’t believe it’s actually coming true right now. But, I really am here – right in the middle of a new chapter at the University of Edinburgh Business School.
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!
