We have a large number of students from all corners of the globe. Our Director of Studies system provides all our students with the support they need and is particularly helpful for our international students to help them adjust to life in a new country. With such a large student community you'll never feel alone at Edinburgh, especially if you live in the student halls in your first year.
We have students from as far afield as Canada, South Africa, China and the Caribbean. Studying at Edinburgh really is a great way to meet people from all over the world and if you are an international student you certainly won't be the only one on your course.
All our staff are friendly and happy to help during your time in Edinburgh. There's an international office that offers help and advice to all our international students.
"I love Chemistry and wouldn't choose to be anywhere else in the world. I wanted to go to a university that had a recognised name associated with it. I like the fact you get a city and a country all in one. I've lived in cities such as London and New York and you don't get this mix anywhere else."
