2+2 Programme

The School of Engineering at The University of Edinburgh has an agreement with several Chinese universities which allows students to study engineering for two years in China and then transfer to The University of Edinburgh to complete a further two years of study. This is known as a "2+2" agreement.

On successful completion of the 4th year at Edinburgh, the students graduate with a Bachelor of Engineering degree awarded by The University of Edinburgh.

You should also have a look at our International Student pages and the EUSA Global website. EUSA Global is an award winning project which is designed to promote student involvement in internationalisation at the University of Edinburgh. The project helps run schemes like peer proof reading, an international buddy scheme to help you settle in and various social events.
