Night life is very diverse - George street has all of your classy bars and hiphop/r&b clubs; head down to Cowgate for more underground techno/dance venues. Plethora of sainsburys and tescos around with a few scotmids open 24/7 for late night scran. Rent is £££££ but definitely worth it for the city views and old Edinburgh architecture.

Perfect student city. Plenty of nights out can be had and every time a different experience. Loads of student deals available for activities and food.

Edinburgh is Scotland's compact, hilly capital. It has a medieval Old Town and 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 one of the best cities ever! The uni campus it so central and has everything you need. The city itself it full of wonderful places to eat and drink on student budgets. There is lots to do whatever the weather such as exploring the streets on foot or taking shelter in one of the museums.

I lived in Leith last year. It was a bit of a trek to get to the uni but I think it was worth it. Leith feels like a different city where people actually care about each other instead of just passing you by in a hurry

My residence is 5 minutes away from the main campus on Cowgate. The school's location could not be better. It is located super close to night-life, just a few minutes from The Royal Mile, and is surrounded by delicious cafes and restaurants with lots of student discounts.

Nights out are good, plenty of good deals for drinks throughout the week. Top end shopping places in the city centre. Friendly people and the princess gardens are beautiful. Very historic and there's always events on somewhere

Edinburgh is amazing. It is such a beautiful city full of history and amazing sites. Even though it is the capital of Scotland, it also has such a peaceful vibe to it. Whether you want to drink tea, explore museums, go hiking check out the local pubs or clubs- Edinburgh offers something for everyone.

This university is only a 6 minute train journey to Edinburgh city centre which is great for shopping, events and nights out. However, the town that this university is a half an hour walk, very limited shops and definitely not any good for a night out. There are nice walks in close distance but again, the transport isn't great with trains only running hourly in the evenings. The buses run often and are brilliant during the day but are just very slow

Edinburgh is an amazing city and I am having a fantastic time here. I feel you can easily integrate the way of life in Edinburgh by having a lot of fun and still taking time in your studies. The fact that most of the places you need to go are walkable is a really great thing.

Great city, lots of options for food and drink every where you go and more and more are cropping up more often, nightlife is really good especially the local music scene! Lots of great little venues such as the mash house and sneaky petes!

Techno, techno, techno. Edinburgh night life is class, wouldn't want to be anywhere else but Scotland. The city could do with more shopping developments however.
