Our Transition and Pre-Entry Guidance Adviser and College Articulation Officer can also provide advice and guidance on making sure you make the right subject choice, and provide some tips on how to maximise your chance of being made an offer, along with directing you to other useful resources.

We are one of the smaller universities in Edinburgh, and this results in smaller class sizes, closer contacts between students and staff and ensures that you are not just a ‘face in the crowd’.
