School of Mathematics

Visit Us

There are a number of opportunities for prospective students to visit the School of Mathematics throughout the year.

 Open Days

The entrance of the James Clark Maxwell Building

The University of Edinburgh Open Days take place in June, September and October each year. During the Open Day there will be talks about studying with the School of Mathematics, as well as on practical issues such as accommodation and making your application. You will be able to talk to lecturers and current students and find out more about studying here.

This year we will also be offering a teaching showcase so you can experience our interactive teaching style.

The University of Edinburgh 2019 Open Days will take place on the following dates:

  • Monday 10 June
  • Saturday 21 September
  • Saturday 5 October.

Offer Holder Visit Days

Offer Holder Visit Days provide the opportunity for you to visit the School of Mathematics and take a closer look at what studying Mathematics at Edinburgh would be like. These days offer a different insight to University Open Days and cover many aspects of university life through a structured programme.

These scheduled visit days will also introduce you to key members of staff and current students, give you the chance to see student accommodation, and allow you to experience our Year 1 interactive teaching style. Visits will typically take place between November and April.

We will send Offer Holder Visit invites to students via email.

Virtual Visits

If you are unable to attend one of our Offer Holder Visit Days, or live overseas, you will be invited to participate in one of our Virtual Visits. These events allow offer holders to hear more about our programmes from senior academics, and speak with current students in an online setting.

We will send Virtual Visit invites to students via email.

All participants are encouraged to find out how Collaborate works by looking at the Blackboard Collaborate Getting Started page.

Individual visits

While it's best if you can come to visit on one of the organised Visit Days, we know this is not always possible and we will do our best to accommodate you at other times – please get in touch to arrange a visit.

The main University page about visiting the University also has useful information about how to get here and where to stay, as well as maps which you could use for a self-guided tour.
