Reading Time: 6 minutes The past two years have gone by in a blink of an eye, it feels like I’ve been here forever, but it also feels like I’ve been here just a couple days. From our Q&A sessions I’ve seen a lot of questions about what it was like moving in, starting classes, making friends and joining […]

Reading Time: 6 minutes With the current global situation, first and second year exams have been cancelled and our teaching has been moved online. We were fortunate to already have had most of our teaching in person. Our classes have now ended but today I’m going to give you a rundown of what a typical day in virtual uni […]

Reading Time: 4 minutes Hellooo!! I’m currently in my 3rd year of studying geography at Edinburgh and I thought I’d share with you just a few reasons why I chose to study here. There are countless reasons which make Edinburgh a great university to study at and live in, here are some that you might already know but also a […]

Reading Time: 3 minutes One of the aspects of transitioning from undergraduate to postgraduate studies that I would’ve found helpful would have been to hear from a postgrad about the differences between undergrad and postgrad studies. For example, whether there’s any difference in the amount of time spent in class versus independent study, in the way of studying, and in the level of independence compared to undergrad. So, I hope you will find my thoughts helpful, after 5 months as a postgrad, on the differences between the […]

Reading Time: 5 minutes Why did I choose to go to Edinburgh? Whilst many may say they went to Edinburgh for the prestigious reputation or that it’s a world-famous university, that wasn’t really something of much importance for me, what I really cared about was the experience and the quality of teaching – luckily enough for me these were […]

Reading Time: 4 minutes Deciding on what university to go to was a stressful choice to make at 17. For every step of my teenage years, there was always endless help with any important decisions that came our way. Then suddenly we were in our final year, our student support teacher was leaving, half of my friends had decided […]

Reading Time: 6 minutes As a first-year student currently beginning the second semester, the shock of adapting to university life is still pretty fresh. Therefore, out of touch and out of practice, the secrets of managing this whole student thing- specifically in Edinburgh- are only just revealing themselves. I’m studying Ecological and Environmental Sciences with Management and so have […]

Reading Time: 4 minutes Welcome back everyone! We hope 2020 has begun well and that you’ve had a good start to the new semester. The first week back always seems to be busy settling in and getting used to new class schedules and routines. However, for those adventurous at heart, school work is only beginning and there’s lots of time […]

Reading Time: 6 minutes As deadines approach and exams draw close, the countdown to the winter holidays grudgingly advances at a slow pace. Fortunately, a regular Thursday’s seminar in mid November brought with it a hearty and amusing sense of relief to the palpable tension that lingers in the Grant Institude at this time of the year. Of the […]

Reading Time: 6 minutes In the millennia since the first written observation of volcanism, the study of these geological hazards has improved considerably. Volcanology in and of itself is steadily getting better at predicting the timeline of volcanic eruptions, with advances in remote sensing now employing techniques such as InSAR1, in-field seismicity and gas geochemistry. Alongside a widening scope […]
