Edinburgh city life
Consistently voted one of the best cities in the world, and with a student population making up a fifth of the city, Edinburgh is the perfect location for student life.
Edinburgh boasts numerous cinemas and theatres spread across the city ranging from small and luxurious to large venues hosting West End productions and tours.
Temperatures range from 2 or 3 degrees in the winter to upwards of 20 degrees in the summer. It rains less in Edinburgh than it does in London on average, and while winter days are shorter, summer days are much longer.
There are plentiful private student halls of residence across the city, and the private rental market, usually offering shared flats, is stable due to the city’s large student population.
