Our University Accommodation Service will help exchange students identify on-campus accommodation or will recommend private flats. Once you are accepted onto our MBA exchange programme, we will give you the contact details for the Accommodation Office Liaison Officer.
For those coming for a few weeks only, for one week courses in Semester 2b, early booking is advised for Kenneth Mackenzie House. This is Bed and Breakfast type accommodation offered by the University Accommodation Service and is located within five minutes walk from the School. The School is located in the city centre so you will find many sandwich shops, restaurants, cafés and bars close by.
Please note carefully the information about visa processing times. The letter issued by the University of Edinburgh Business School will be your supporting evidence to confirm that you have been accepted on a course of study in the UK.
