I was a student at this school. It is a cool uni because it is located all throughout the city. There are parts of the school that are ancient and some that are modern. I really enjoyed my time here and would recommend to both prospective students and sightseers who want to check it out.

I went looking for the old school, and found a wonderful courtyard & friendly staff. Worth a look if you are in Edinburgh. Just beautiful, and was impressed with the wreaths and one section dedicated to all the alumni who lost their lives, touching.

Currently attending UBC in Canada, I spent a school year on exchange at the University of Edinburgh. Overall, it was an amazing experience. Top class professors, gorgeous city and great buildings, from new ones to gothic looking ones. Night life is excellent, with plenty of night clubs around the city. The city is full of life and history, with excellent Scottish food and plenty of hikes and attractions.

Attended my Nephews Graduation. Very well organised, and guests were well looked after on the day. Great pass rates for this University. You can actually buy a DVD about an hour after the ceremony which was really good.

The university was founded by the town council, and has its sites dotted around the city. The different sites tell the story of the University: the old college demonstrating the rationality of the Edinburgh enlightenment, the new college showing the strength of passion in religion etc.

There's a visitors centre at the heart of the main part of the university - opposite McEwen Hall.

Well worth a visit - not the standard tourist thing to do in Scotland's capital.
