Visit Us

Interested in finding out what student life in the School of Social and Political Science is like? Why not come and visit us? There are several ways you can do this.

Open Days

Our Undergraduate Open Days give you an opportunity to see the university for yourself. You will have the chance to explore the campus, learn more about our degree programmes and ask questions about admissions, accommodation and career prospects. Open Days are taking place:

Student-Led Tours

Can't make it to an Open Day? Don't worry, The University also organise Student-Led Tours. These are ideal for anyone who was unable to attend an Open Day.  The tour is designed to give you an overview of the University of Edinburgh from the perspective of one of our current students.

The tour takes you around the George Square campus, sometimes referred to as the central area. You’ll see inside the main University Library, teaching spaces, and the student union buildings.

These tours run most Mondays and Fridays and you can book online.

Self-Guided Tours

Alternatively, you can explore the campus at your own pace using our Self-Guided Tour.
