Edinburgh
  1. A great place to study

    Edinburgh is Scotland's compact and hilly capital. It has a medieval Old Town and an elegant Georgian New Town with gardens and neoclassical buildings. Looming over the city is Edinburgh Castle, home to Scotland’s crown jewels and the Stone of Destiny, used in the coronation of Scottish rulers. Arthur’s Seat is an imposing peak in Holyrood Park with sweeping views, and Calton Hill is topped with monuments and memorials.

    Edinburgh is steeped in history, in particular for literature. It’s the only city in UK to have a train station named after a novel (Waverley – Sir Walter Scott). It’s also where one of the most famous book series in the world was written by JK Rowling – and you can even visit the cafe where it was written!

    It is also home to one of the biggest festivals in the world: The Fringe Festival. Every August, the city transforms into a hub of music, comedy and theatre shows for the entire month – many of which are absolutely free. Add Edinburgh Playhouse and we have a fantastic culturally vibrant city.

    Higher Education Institutions include The University of Edinburgh, Edinburgh Napier University, Heriot-Watt University, Edinburgh College and Queen Margaret University – there are thousands of students from over 100 countries living in the city.

     

  2. Food and drink

    There is a limitless selection of restaurants and bars in Edinburgh, which cater for all tastes and budgets. From fine dining to fast food and international cuisine, Edinburgh is a foodie’s paradise. Local pubs The Brass Monkey and Woodland Creatures serve great food at fantastic prices, and have a wide selection of beers and ciders to wash it all down.

    Nearer to the city centre, Burger has (you guessed it) burgers for everyone (even vegetarians!). And whilst you’re studying at the Edinburgh University Campus, why not try out The Potting Shed which also has live music every Thursday, Friday and Saturday night.

  3. Culture and music

    Edinburgh’s nightlife has everything from hip-hop, techno and soul to jazz and blues, and the city is always rocking to a beat that will hit the mark with music and dance lovers alike. Check out The Usher Hall, The Queen’s Hall or The Jam House for world class concerts and cracking gigs or Cabaret Voltaire and Shanghai Club.

    If your budget will stretch a bit further why not try a night at the theatre? Theatre goers can choose from a raft of top class city centre venues and are sure to find a play, musical or performance to suit their tastes. Choose from The King’s, The Festival Theatre, The Royal Lyceum Theatre, Traverse and Edinburgh Playhouse theatres all of which provide a truly astounding theatrical experience.

    Feel like a good laugh? Edinburgh is renowned for its comedy – if you’re a comedian, you play Edinburgh. Be sure to pay a visit to The Stand and Beehive Comedy Clubs during a night out.
