Have been failing at finding a job as we are in between STEM and not, the teachers are nice but some of them expect too much understanding. As a person who has never studied these subjects before uni, it was quite difficult to keep up. read more

Living in 200 Cowgate is wonderful since the location is good and it’s convenient to do almost everything: near to the Royal Mile, near to the university, and lots of stores nearby. There is free breakfast every month and the staff are all warm and kind. read more

Law and International Relations, LLB Hons FullTime

I am enjoying the degree a lot. It is a lovely balance of learning the law but also understanding its scope in a global context through IR. I do wish the strikes had not affected my studies the way they did as I have had to teach myself most of the work, which is outrageous as an international fee paying student read more

Courses are a mix of good and bad to be honest. A lot of the German course feels a bit pointless. Haven't learnt much and will be switching my degree for next year read more

Loved the course, the year abroad was e superb experience. I had a lot of opportunities to combine knowledge from my 2 specialties. The administrative staff was excellent, and lectures are passionate about their work- they do, however, at times seem to be unorganised read more

Social Policy and Politics, MA Hons FullTime

The overall course is okay. However £9250 for little contact time and powerpoint presentations is slightly ridiculous. Personal tutor was not always helpful. The strikes went on for 6 weeks, with no teaching & the exam content despite never having been taught any has not been amended. Very poor in my opinion. read more
