Edinburgh offers a wide range of courses and you will be taught alongside students who enrolled on full degree courses in Edinburgh. We will always try to offer you a place on the courses you choose, but space may be limited in Honours level (3rd year) courses in popular subject areas. If you want to take Honours courses you need to show you have prior knowledge of the subject (a minimum of 3 or 4 University courses in the subject, which you passed with good grades). Meeting these requirements does not guarantee entry to a course, but we will try and offer you a suitable alternative if space is not available.
You can apply online. In addition to your completed application we also require a personal statement, an academic reference (from a faculty member who has taught you at your home institution), and an official transcript from your home institution. Through your online account you can upload supporting documents and track the progress of your application.
Candidates are expected to have a good academic record with a good ‘B’ average (for applicants from North America this translates into a GPA of 3.0 or above).
