Life in Edinburgh

Edinburgh is one of Europe’s most beautiful cities and has a vibrant student community. It has all the excitement and diversity you would expect from a major European capital city but without London costs.  It has the added advantage of easy access to the stunning surrounding countryside and the world beyond.

Whether your interests include sailing, climbing, walking, indoor or outdoor sports, you’ll find easy access to these in and beyond Edinburgh.

If clubbing, theatre or entertainment is what interests you, you’ll find plenty to explore and, with the International, Science, Book, Film and Fringe Festivals, Edinburgh is a hive of activity year-round.

With an international airport just a 30 minute journey from the city centre, Edinburgh provides easy access to our globe and the world is your oyster!
