Your Time at Edinburgh
Why did you choose to study abroad in Edinburgh?
I chose to study in Edinburgh because I knew it would be a challenge as well as an adventure.
What do you enjoy the most about your degree programme?
I really enjoy learning about a subject I am truly interested in. Plus, Edinburgh has so many resources for research!
What opportunities did you take advantage of at Edinburgh?
I joined several societies (clubs) and went on some International student trips!
What words of encouragement would you have for students from your home state or province thinking about applying to Edinburgh?
It is definitely hard at first, but the places you get to visit and the people you meet make it worth it.
How would you describe Edinburgh in three words?
Lively, Focused, and Inviting
What are you hoping to do after graduation?
Right now I’m not sure what my plan is! I’m leaning towards doing a law conversion and possibly staying in the UK for a while!”
