Student Life

The Edinburgh University Students' Association (EUSA) offers a wide range of entertainment and support for students.
Run by students, for students, EUSA operates the union bars and shops, and supports over 220 student societies.

With so much going on, it might seem hard to keep track of every event, but we have several ways for you to keep your diary in order. The University's weekly newspaper, Student, provides listings and reviews of local events. Hype, also published by the Students' Association, offers previews and reviews on a fortnightly basis. Non-university publications, The Skinny and The List, cover entertainment and related goings-on in Edinburgh. These all can be found at locations city-wide or online.

From poker to politics, science fiction to Swahili, we have societies to cater to all interests. You're sure to find one that suits you from the 220 currently recognised.

Living in Edinburgh

Edinburgh is a cosmopolitan capital city with museums, theaters, and galleries, but is small enough to explore on foot.  The population is also manageable, only 500,000, so it is easy to feel at home in the city which was voted the friendliest in the UK.  Edinburgh is known for its ancient castle, medieval city center, and elegant Gorgeian architecture.  From Edinburgh, it is easy to explore not only Scotland but the rest of the UK and Ireland.


While abroad, students continue to pay their Case tuition rather than the tuition at their new institution. In addition there are several expenses students’ financial aid can potentially help to fund. These are listed in the attachments below.
