Reading Time: 2 minutes Hello my name is Megan and I will be one of the new bloggers for 2019. I came to Edinburgh University from East Yorkshire and am in my third year studying Environmental Geoscience. During my first year I was originally on the degree – Ecological and Environmental Sciences – before switching to the degree I […]

Reading Time: 3 minutes Hi everyone! I’m Emma, and I study Environmental Geoscience. I come from the sunny and warm South of France, and I had never gone more North than Berlin before I applied to the University of Edinburgh. This blog post will describe my first visit to Edinburgh, and hopefully show you why I chose to move […]

Reading Time: 12 minutes Moving to Edinburgh was one of the hardest moves I’ve ever had to make.  I’ve lived in Nice, Montréal and Indonesia, but this experience was something different…  PART I: Foundations – Managing Your Mental Health  I was in a really vulnerable state when I moved here which I will not go into, but what I […]

I’ve split […]

Reading Time: 7 minutes   I don’t know about you, but when it comes to exam season or even nearing the end of any semester, I find it nearly (basically) impossible to find a place to study (especially on campus).

Reading Time: 3 minutes The 3rd of March is World Wildlife Day! Many organisation use this to raise awareness of the big biodiversity and conservation issues of our time. The big cats, elephants, pandas and penguins battling for top spot. In terms of Scotland, the RZSS have these covered with Edinburgh Zoo and the Highland Wildlife Park housing some […]

Reading Time: 4 minutes Having almost reached the end of my four years in this beautiful city (cry), it’s fair to say I’ve been lucky enough to sample an array of Edinburgh’s culinary offerings. And let me tell you, it really does have a plethora of options. Romantic dinner for two… hungover brunch with the girls… and everything in […]

Reading Time: < 1 minute After studying environmental studies for the past year, I realised that I have adopted new habits when it comes to sustainable living. I always try to incorporate environmentally-friendly practices everyday, such as minimising waste and purchasing packaging-free items (#LushCosmetics), but I was never used to be very conscious of my crochet waste.  After completing my […]
