There is a file size limit of 2MB for each individual supporting document. If your document is larger than this, either use compression software to create a .zip file, or separate the file into smaller files and upload them as 'unspecified documents'.
If you are still unable to upload documents, please send them to firstname.lastname@example.org quoting the programme you applied for and your University Username (UUN).
If your most recent work experience is in a family business, you should provide another suitable professional reference, for example a client or accountant, or a previous employer.
You may apply for more than one programme if you wish, however you will be required to submit a separate application form for each programme. You will need to upload your supporting documents for each application.
Your reference letter and personal statement should both be programme-specific as you will need to be able to demonstrate your motivation for applying.
Please note that if you apply for more than one programme which requires an application fee, you will be required to pay a separate fee for each programme.
If you have not graduated already, you do not need to respond to this request yet. Please upload your most recent transcript when asked, and if you are given a conditional offer, you should upload your degree certificate as soon as you can once you graduate.
You should receive your account log in details and UUN from EUCLID shortly after submitting your application. If you have not received this within a few days, please contact Student Systems.
You may re-apply if you feel that your application has strengthened considerably by the next admissions cycle, however we cannot guarantee that you will be made an offer the second time round.
Log in to your EUCLID account to track the progress of your application. Any requests or notifications from the admissions team will be sent to your MyEd inbox. You should also receive an email alerting you to any updates - this will be sent to the contact email specified in your application.
No. Due to the high volume of applications we receive and the associated heavy email traffic, we would kindly ask that applicants do not email us requesting frequent updates. You can track the progress of your application through your EUCLID portal and you will be alerted to any updates via your MyEd inbox.
Although we strive to inform applicants of the decision as quickly as possible, this process can take several weeks. We receive many thousands of applications each year, with a particularly busy period between October and January.
Decisions are final and will generally not be reconsidered.
Competition for places varies from programme to programme, but due to strong competition for places and the high quality of applications received for many programmes, preference may be given to those with grades above the minimum requirements.
Additionally, some programmes reach capacity before the suggested deadline of 30 June, so you will increase your chances of acceptance if you apply early.
Making arrangements to pay your fees is part of the matriculation process to become a student at the University of Edinburgh. Please see 'Paying your tuition fees' on the university website for more information on when and how to pay your fees.
