Student Advisers

Student Advisers provide a first contact point for all undergraduate and postgraduate taught students. They can support you with your studies, wellbeing or practical matters and can refer you to a Wellbeing Adviser if you need more specialist support.​

Cohort leads

Cohort Leads are in place to create a sense of community within your programme. They will provide you with study support, connect you with your programme and the wider School. They will also assist you with your academic development and any specific subject related challenges.

The Engineering Student Support Team​

Our Engineering Student Support Team are also available to provide you with support for routine enquiries.

Equality, diversity and inclusion​

The School of Engineering is fully committed to embedding equality and diversity in our culture and practices. We recognise, respect and value the differences that a diverse range of people bring to the School, so you can expect to be treated fairly as a member of our community.

Widening participation​

We recognise that not everyone has the same start in life nor the same opportunities to flourish and succeed educationally. The University of Edinburgh is committed to raising aspiration towards higher education and offering support throughout the full student lifecycle, including Access Edinburgh Scholarships which provide all eligible students with financial support during their time at university.

University Services

The University offers a variety of services to help you get the most out of your studies. Your Student Adviser can help you identify and access the most appropriate support.
