The University guarantees to provide accommodation for all First Year students who do not live in the City of Edinburgh and has a vast range of catered and self-catered accommodation on offer. However, for students with conditional offers who are waiting on exam results in August prior to applying for accommodation, it must be borne in mind that Scottish students who are generally allocated University places based on their Higher results (obtained during their penultimate year of Secondary School) will receive unconditional offers from December onwards and will thus be able to apply for accommodation as soon as the applications open. This means that students with conditional offers are fighting over whatever is left of the University's accommodation in August and rarely get their first choice of accommodation. In my experience, many late applicants were allocated an en-suite twin room with bunk beds in a catered hall, despite having expressed a preference for a single room in a self-catered hall. On a more positive note, the refectory for the catered accommodation was undergoing renovations whilst I was staying in my catered hall 3 years ago and is now much larger, more modern and more efficient. The quality and range of the food on offer has improved drastically following these renovations and the waiting time for the refectory has equally been reduced. There are usually two to three options for main meals, including a vegetarian option and there are a variety of side dishes on offer, from healthier options such as salads and pasta to a plate of chips if you're feeling indulgent. With coffee machines and coke/sprite dispensers, the refectory is now much improved.×

Edinburgh is expensive but you can live quite cheaply if you know where to look. Get a nectar card as you will spend an awful lot of time (especially during exam season) visiting the Sainsbury's on Middle Meadow Walk.×

Expect about 3 hours of lectures each week with an hour tutorial per subject. The first year is fairly laid back and not particularly challenging. It can therefore be difficult to keep focused and on track. Type of work varies massively between subjects. The feedback is sometimes too general and not specific enough to your work.×

Here's where this university ranks in the three main league tables (where available), which are calculated using a combination of stats that they each weight in different ways. They’re a handy guide but don’t offer the full picture – just because a university is top (or bottom) of the league tables doesn’t mean it is (or isn’t) the right choice for you.
We’ve pinpointed the key sites where teaching takes place. Check in the smallprint of the course you’re interested in to see where exactly you’d be based, especially if there are multiple locations spread across a wide area.
