The City and Campus
Edinburgh, with a population of half a million people, and an unusually large and diverse student population (over 62,000 students study in Edinburgh) offers community, variety and a wealth of activities to recommend it as a popular place in which to live and study.
Edinburgh's historical centre, castle, elegant suburbs, parks and gardens combine well with contemporary, modern development. Its east coast location means you can easily choose to be by the sea or walking or skiing in the Pentland Hills.
Our Edinburgh Campus is situated to the south of the city as part of the University of Edinburgh's King's Buildings Campus, which hosts multiple bars and libraries and has direct bus links straight into the city centre.
President of the Edinburgh Agricultural Society:
"We encourage all SRUC Edinburgh students to join the Agric. Society - it's not just for agriculture students! The committee tries to involve all the students by organising a range of activities including fancy dress evenings, ceilidhs, various charity fundraisers, and an end of year ball. Our sports teams regularly compete with other local teams. Each year we go away for a weekend and this year we are off to Harper Adams University College for sporting competitions and socialising!"
President of the Edinburgh Green Feet Environmental Society:
"The Green Feet society's aim is to provide students from all courses access to course-related activities, current issues, award schemes, training courses, and social events, for example: guest speakers, John Muir Trust awards, rock climbing, white water rafting, orienteering, and first aid training, as well as charity and conservation tasks. We're always open to suggestions and have no restriction on events and activities - after all - our environment is everything around us!"
