Loads of great things to do in and around the city. Great nightlife where you can meet lots of fun people.

Beautiful city, great Uni, can be a bit annoying if you have lectures in Central and at Kings back to back.

Edinburgh's a beautiful town with lots of nice places to walk around in. The nightlife is varied with some cool pubs and bars although the clubs are mostly pretty small and nowhere stays open past 3am (except during the fringe) so it's not really a place for going out raving. It is a very international city with lots of tourists and exchange students which makes it a vibrant and interesting place, but it is also very expensive compared to most UK cities, especially for renting a flat.

Great city, Lots of culture and things to do. It has a great night life with lots of public transport to and from towns even in the early hours of the morning. The fringe is always a great event especially if you enjoy drinking, music and comedy.

Busy town, costs are higher for nights out and eating out due to the fact it’s a major city. The city is full of cultural and lots of things to do and go see. The fringe is a great event every year especially if you love alcohol, music and comedy. If you are coming from a small rural village it is quite difficult to adjust to the city with all the people and traffic but definitely worth it.

The scenery is gorgeous and the people you meet are some of the nicest. The clubs aren’t consistently great. Some are horrible and some are just too expensive for most students. The pubs are mostly fantastic though, always really cool decor and entertainment.

The city is beautiful and the university is central to Edinburgh. You’re not isolated on am excluded campus. The street opposite your lectures/tutorials are highstreets with shops, local pubs/bars. The experience between campus and city is one and the same. Couldn’t be better

Edinburgh is a fantastic city. The University of Edinburgh's central campus is large and very centralised. Prince's Street and various food shops are just minutes away. Not forgetting the huge variety of bars and clubs to suit anyone's taste.

Very expensive but walkable. Oftentimes frustrated by the large swathes of tourists at specific points of the year, but as cities go there is always a cultural activity or something like that to do. Definitely not a city you can live in on a shoestring. Manageable.

Great nights out and restaurants but sometimes over priced. Lots of different shops in Edinburgh near campus also.

Places in the city can be expensive, you can find cheaper places outside from the centre. You'll never run out of things to do.

Plenty of shops nearby including a lidl which is cheaper than most and therefore very beneficial. Social life in Edinburgh is great for students with all the pubs and clubs

Edinburgh has so much to offer in such a small, beautiful and historic city. The location is perfect for so many activities as there are loads of green spaces including extinct volcanoes, there are many historic buildings and underground vaults, and it is right by the sea!

Nights out and drinks certainly aren’t the cheapest, but they’re a reasonable price and there’s a great variety in Edinburgh. And there’s so much to do, so much culture in the city, it’s really somewhere I could see myself living after I graduate.

Right by fort kinnard with plenty shops, food etc. Otherwise Musselburgh isn’t very exciting, only option is to go into Edinburgh for a night out and taxi’s back aren’t always keep. But trains and buses in normal hours are fine

I chose a uni in a city since i'm from a small town as a nice change, Edinburgh was a great choice since there is a bustling city life, it is still very picturesque and a comfortable, safe place to live.

Edinburgh is a beautiful city, with a wide variety of shops, cafes and places to eat (although restaurants are relatively expensive). The city is relatively small which makes it possible to walk nearly everywhere that you would need to - particularly good as it saves taxi money on nights out.

There's pretty good shopping choices, only really on Princes St and northwards; there's cinemas and museums a plenty. The Student Union is rubbish, being expensive and only having one building and one night out. Terrible city for value for money. Plenty of choice for places to eat, and lots of bars.
