Semester 2 [Updated - 26 February]

In line with Scottish Government restrictions, please do not travel back to your term-time address (or return home, if you are already in Edinburgh).  Under current lockdown / Level 4 restrictions all students and staff are required to comply with the government stay-at-home guidance

The Scottish Government has set out specific exceptional circumstances where travel is permitted.  If you believe you have an exceptional reason to travel, you must review University guidance before travelling, and complete an intention to travel form.  If you do return in-person to university with no exceptional reason for doing so, then you will potentially be in breach of the law.

All teaching for undergraduate and postgraduate taught students will be digital for the remainder of Semester 2.  Semester 2 exams will take place online. 

If you are on a one-year MSc and are based in Edinburgh, our aim is to resume on-campus activities for the dissertation phase of your programme, after the end of Semester 2 (2 April).  This will be dependent on Scottish Government restrictions at the time, as Edinburgh would need to move from the current lockdown / Level 4 and into Level 3.  We will keep this under review and will keep you updated once we know more.
