Edinburgh Castle

University of Edinburgh Engineering Exchange



The University of Edinburgh is located in the very heart of Scotland’s capital, which is consistently considered one of the most desirable places to live in the world and is also ranked the greenest in the United Kingdom. Edinburgh is recognized as a UNESCO World Heritage site because of its famed and breathtaking architecture. There is the Old Town, over which towers a medieval castle, and the New town, which for centuries has influenced urban planning across Europe. With a wide range of museums, art galleries, theaters and cinemas, and playing host to 12 festivals each year (including the world’s largest arts festival) Edinburgh offers plenty to see and do all year round.

Academics & Curriculum

Students need to take the majority of their coursework (at least 40 Edinburgh credits) within the College of Science and Engineering. Any remaining classes (up to 20 Edinburgh credits) may be taken in  the College of Arts, Humanities, and Social Sciences. Applicants interested in learning more about course offerings can find information here.

Accommodation & Meals

Visiting students are housed in the Morgan Court accommodation, which includes 2 options for single rooms (standard and large), as well as shared kitchens and bathrooms. Morgan Court is near Scottish Parliament, Holyrood Park, and minutes from the University’s Centre for Excellence for Sport and Exercise, as well as the Commonwealth pool. It is ideally located in Edinburgh’s Old Town. Meals are self-catered, so student should make meal plans that rely on groceries, cafes, and nearby restaurants.

Students can learn more by visiting the Edinburgh study abroad accommodations website.
