University of Edinburgh Reputation

The third most popular university in the United Kingdom based on its volume of applicants per year, the University of Edinburgh is situated in the capital city of Scotland. Many of the historic university buildings go back to 1583 when the University was founded and are situated across the city. New buildings have also since been added to encompass the expansion of the University. Despite being spread throughout the city, the University buildings are all within walking distance of the University accommodation, other buildings and the city centre and Edinburgh also provides plenty of public transport.

The University is ranked 1st in Scotland, 5th in the UK and 20th in the world rankings (2011-12). It is also recognised as one of the world’s leading research universities, particularly for Veterinary Medicine, Informatics, Mathematics and Art. The three colleges in the University are the College of Humanities and Social Science, the College of Medicine and Veterinary Medicine and the College of Science and Engineering.

There are multiple Students Union buildings due to the spread out nature of the university across the city, including Teviot Row House which is thought to be the oldest student’s union building in the world. The students union offers bars, cafes, nights out during the week, a place for advice and over 260 clubs and societies to get involved in. Clubs range from the astronomy club and Amnesty International Society to the Paintball society.

Edinburgh has plenty to offer in terms of entertainment. Edinburgh castle is the cities most popular attraction but there is also plenty more to visit including the National Gallery of Scotland and the National Museum of Scotland. The city hosts the Edinburgh festival each year including the Fringe, International festival and The Military Tatoo. Jazz and Blues festivals are held throughout the year along with the Film Festival and there are theatres and multiplex cinemas for more visual entertainment.

There is a wide variety of sporting opportunities to get involved with in Edinburgh. The city is highly accessible by bike and close by is the Pentland Hills which can be explored by mountain bike. Artificial ski slopes, wakeboarding and climbing are also available throughout the year as well as numerous golf courses and also dance classes for beginners through to experts. If you would rather be a spectator, there are football grounds and rugby pitches close by. The University itself has a Centre for Sports and Exercise which includes several gyms, a swimming pool and its own climbing wall and offers 63 sports clubs. The Centre has been given a 5* rating from the Sunday Times.

All above are fine - the problem is that the university is too focussed on getting grants for its research - they boasted this year of getting the biggest grant ever awarded to a UK university. Research is obviously important and prestigious when you can say the man who invented anaesthetic effects of chloroform hailed from Edinburgh University but a bit more focus could be put on the students themselves and attention to their mental health and wellbeing - there is a serious imbalance between the two at the moment

When I started studying at Edinburgh University I was expecting a university with top facilities and well structured classes. I was quickly disappointed. It is surprising that a university of such reputation can be so unorganized. Staff that never replies to emails, classes that I was wondering what we were meant to learn from. Many teachers were not well prepared and I often felt that the independent learning was missing in structure and guidance. And worst of all, the university proudly announces how they help and guide talented students. This was never the case. Instead of caring and promoting students with talent, the university did the exact opposite. It used the ones that had already a reputation to promote itself, by mentioning their names and work in talks, web or open days. The only opportunities I got as a promotion from the university these four years were either a waste of time or lacking completely on proffessionalism.

I've enjoyed my time at Edinburgh so far. There is a lot of study space, a very well-stocked library (vital for humanities research students!), and the Literatures, Languages and Cultures building provides a study space specifically for Postgraduates. Cafes are convenient and serve nice food, the Union bars are cheap (especially for Edinburgh), and there's a huge variety of clubs and societies, with an excellent gym, membership of which gets you free access to a whole host of classes and equipment. I can't comment for the undergrad life unfortunately, but as a postgrad student I'd recommend.

It is a great university for international student as they paid a lot but definitely not for non-European staff. Race bias and even racism is quite often and hidden in people's mind. Don't work here if you are non-locals.

The university provides a lot of help in all areas you may require it, staff are polite and welcoming. With the amount of different clubs and societies it's guaranteed that you will find something of interest (or if not, you can start your own society!).

I has sexual harassment and bullying and I did formal complaint. They told that I misuderstood and they stopped my studies. University of Edinburgh is the first in discriminations according to press (search the guardian) Students are objects, threats and fear everywhere. My mental health was affected very badly and they tried to pursuade me that all the proof (messages, email) do not exist. No morals and respect. Avoid this place. Everything is covered. Search all the reviews and stories. People tried to suicide under the pressure and fear to accept everything and not speak.

PLEASE READ IF EDI IS YOUR FIRST CHOICE - Throughout my first year at this university I have felt isolated and my mental health deterioted significantly. I enjoyed the independence of learning at first, however this university takes independent learning too far, as in, I literally havent been taught anything, they only care about students who are exteremely intelligent and don't need any help. I was a straight A student at school, and I failed my exams at this university. It is an enormous uni, and there is no sense of community, to them you are just a number. DO NOT GO HERE!!! I'm transferring to a different uni in september. Also student halls are disgusting and overpriced.

The science campus is thirty minutes away from Edinburgh city centre. That doesn't seem like much, but be aware that it is scarily easy to fall into a soul-crushing routine of doing nothing but going in, out, in, out of university, and the days and weeks fly by, with few memories made, and very little enjoyment.

Mylnes Court PG has mice. There has been at least 3 mice in my kitchen at one time and I have seen them on multiple occasion (we keep are kitchen spotless and do not leave food around). The school sets poison for them only after you call them many times. They will not set traps because they do not want to personally remove or handle them they also won't come and block the holes.There has been mice in my room as well and I do not keep food laying around. DO NOT go through the schools accommodations it is shameful.

I came to Edinburgh despite their very poor performance in student satisfaction, as the University has a good reputation. Edinburgh is brilliant although the winter is rather cold. French is not too bad, but the department of Spanish is the worst you can think of. The teachers just don't care about you and it is so difficult to get any help from them when you need it. Feedback is always unhelpful. Honestly you will get fed up of reading bad, boring novels.

I really love Edinburgh uni campus, it's very open l, clean and full of life. The only real complaint I can make is the student shops and union ran EUSA are ridiculously expensive for no good reason at all. Don't even get me started on the VKs which cost £2.90. There pubs in Edinburgh that sell pints for £2.90 it doesn't make any sense. EUSA have enough money as it is why do they need to rip off students who are paying f*** tonne to study here.

Library is great but you end up waiting an hour for a seat sometimes as its way to small. The wifi is secure and you get logged in at any university site automatically, its usually pretty fast everywhere except the library where it really struggles because of how many people that are using it in one place which isnt great.

1. Central campus: everything close and lecture halls + food good. Library bar at Teviot, good food, good music. Potterow venue for Big Cheese Saturday parties. 2. Lots of clubs to join, active communities 3. Can usually find space at library, group (3 or more) study space a little challenging to find. Computers, plenty of books, many quiet areas. 4. Student union: support for reps. They make an effort to engage with students and improve things. 5. Careers service: pretty active and offers weekly support and possible 1-1 talks 6. Internet works well. 7. Web interface (myed and LEARN) is a bit of a hassle in the start, but figured it out eventually. Would be nice if they invested more in IT and gave an intro course into the system (I've heard some courses like Biology get an intro, but I didn't)

An amazing university with an amazing reputation. I am currently gonna be 2nd year student and I'm very excited. The only issue I have is they should provide more clubs and societies but otherwise it's perfect !

It's just a great place to learn! Everyone aims to help the best they can. Lectures are always full of the info you need and the reading materials and online work always help summarise. Also lets not forget you get to study in such a great city and experience all it has to offer.

Great university, lovely people and world class facilities. The staff are friendly and are always willing to help anyone who seeks out help. There are a huge number of clubs and societies to choose from. Edinburgh itself is a fantastic city with so much to see and do, including a vibrant nightlife and a great summer festival.

Don't know what everyone's complaining about. I'm doing psychology BSc (with biology courses) and have found both the George square and kings campuses to be amazing. There's nothing I can criticise about my uni experience so far.

U of E has a huge, colourful student body and just about every society you can think of, many of which could help jumpstart a career. Amazing nightlife, endless vintage shops and independent cafés, and a serious herd mentality within the student population.

It's a great uni in terms of atmosphere and people. But we are really left to fend for ourselves. They don't really help us develop.

I've thoroughly enjoyed my first year at Edi Uni. I recomend that everyone joint a sport, club or society of some sort! It's the perfect thing to balance out your life and your studies.

Fun university to go to. Very diverse with the city/campus life put together which makes it great. In a great location with plenty to do. Actual lectures were no where near as good as I thought it would be. Tonnes of socials available and clubs to join in.

Lecturers and the union need to improve their relationships with the students. Lecturers do not teach the theory well. Mark schemes are not given for past papers, so we're never knowing what we're doing is right. The union does not care for the rest of us. They only seek to improve their careers down the line.

Absolutely brilliant, got everything you could need alongside a world class degree! the city is beautiful, nightlife is lively with options for everyone. There are so many societies, from comedy to trading, debates to a student led think tank. Edinburgh's a world leading university so career opportunities are better than most! the university and city is welcoming, students friendly and staff encouraging!

I absolutely love Edinburgh - yes, the union is still recovering, and yes, some of the teaching isn't up to scratch, and yes, we have a broken lecture theatre... However, there are enough people willing to put their time and effort into our union (have you seen the building?!), enough excellent staff members to make sure you can always get the help you need, and we do have some fabulous labs (come on, we do quantum experiments in third year physics!)... On top of all that, we have one of the most stunning campuses in the world, dozens of places to work and socialise, and some absolutely fantastic societies who are all waiting to welcome you.
