A very beautiful place, away from the hustle of the city and pure scottish serenity. There is a lake in campus which is a great spot to hangout. The forest trails in the university make morning walks great. The University looks great in any season.

Our university is 40 minutes away from the town centre by bus and only 6 minutes away by train that costs almost twice as much and does not come very regularly. On a night out you are sometimes desperate to catch the last train as you do not want to spend 40 minutes and £3 on a night bus.

Overall Edinburgh is a great student town. There's a huge amount of students and as a result loads of places to go out, eat and drink. Transport connections are great with Lothian Buses. Can be expensive.

Edinburgh is the perfect student city. It's small enough that you'll never feel lost, but there are endless things to do so you'll never be bored. It's international but maintains a Scottish feel.

Within walking distance of everything you could need, and loads of public transport options for everything else.

Amazing city, amazing public transport and amazinf people. The nightlife is great if you know where to go for it. The castle being in the centre of the city definitely makes it unique and the Edinburgh accent isn’t too bad to understand if you’re from elsewhere.

The city itself is beautiful - stunning architecture and scenery. Nights out are good, with plenty of student nights as to not break the bank. There’s also a lot to experience and do in the city and surrounding areas too. However, rent is a wee bit on the expensive side.

Great place - so much going, loads of festivals happen throughout the year (not just the fringe and film festival). Pretty sound for shopping, Princess street has basically everything Oxford street has, just a little scaled down. Plenty of places for cheap food and drink near campus.

Edinburgh is maybe not a big city but have a lot to offer. This city is alive on the day and also in the night. There are sime bars, pubs and clubs almost everywhere and the same thing is with food and restaurants. The transport is long, it takes a while to drive to the centre unfortunately

Edinburgh is such a beautiful city, with a mixture of different nightclubs, bars, pubs, cafes, shops etc for everyone's taste, which you would expect with Edinburgh being a capital city. It also has so many beautiful outdoor spaces, with Princes Street Gardens, the Meadows (perfect for a summer barbecue) and Holyrood park. The city to me is still utterly enchanting with beautiful views and sights all around the centre which is where the university is. All of the city is very accessible, as the centre is quite compact, however if you are going further afield, such as to one of the beaches in the city (Portobello being a favourite), there are good and affordable transportation systems. as a result of it being such a great city, the living cost is huge, with rents increasing hugely per year and landlords making prospective tenants practically audition to stay in their place. Despite this, I would not live anywhere else.

Definitely one of the cities to go to university in, from the ease and cheapness of transportation to the amounts of things to do. Edinburgh has it all.

Edinburgh is my favourite city in Scotland. I love that it has the nightlife of a city but also has scenic views as if you’re in the country. It’s so easy to get about with the excellent transport system and anything you need is a 5 minute journey away. Shopping is accessible and there’s plenty of amenities everywhere.

Such a great city! Loads of fun cultural activities, fantastic restaurants and great pubs and bars. The fringe festival in August is also super fun, and great for finding a summer job. The only problem is allll the tourists.

Edinburgh is a fantastic place to go to university, full of opportunity for your studies and personal life! The university buildings are mainly in the centre town so they're nearby great cafes, restaurant, study spaces and transport links. Nights out are always exciting, it's so lively here at night, especially on campus. Down in Cowgate with so many clubs there's never a lack of choice.

Very far out from centre with very little around the uni itself. However there are many bus routes and train/tram services directly to the campus making travelling there easy.

I'd say the highlights of Edinburgh as a city lie mainly in the deep cultural value of historical buildings such as the Castle, Scott Monument, Parliament. However Princes Street is amazing for shopping, from high street to designer stores, and there are also many great restaurants both in central Edinburgh and on the outskirts. Edinburgh itself is easily navigable as a city due to the excellent bus services. There is also a tram service but I have never personally used it so cannot really comment on that. Nights out are okay, standard student clubs. There are cinemas and filmhouses, as well as the Festival Hall and Usher Hall, and also the Queens hall so very good entertainment whether you're looking for family fun, classical music, opera, theatre, and of course, in August, Edinburgh hosts the Fringe which is one of the greatest entertainment festivals globally - definitely worth checking out.
