You can apply for accommodation once you have been offered and accepted a place to study here in Edinburgh. Full year European exchange students are guaranteed accommodation.
Students on exchange for one semester are not guaranteed accommodation. However we would advise that you still submit a university accommodation application in case there are spaces left.
The Erasmus+ Grant is no longer available for exchange students who are going to the UK. The British Universities Transnational Exchange (BUTEX) is offering a scholarship opportunity which students can apply to. You can read more about the scholarship on their website Read more about other grants on our website.

There are limited places in the honours courses, taught at level 10. Students are advised to take care when selecting courses and observe any prerequisites. They must also ensure that they register for courses before the deadline. Registration for particular courses is not guaranteed, even if you applied before the deadline. although Edinburgh will try to ensure that tey are allocated at least some.
Course levels: In the first two years of study, level 8 courses are followed. In years 3 and 4, courses are level 10.
The standard workload for a full year of study is 120 Edinburgh credits.
We have no cap on numbers in level 8 courses, other than the size of the lecture theatre. Within this boundary, each student will be guaranteed a place on these courses and, as far as Edinburgh is concerned,
In relation to all visiting students, we would normally expect a minimum of 1/3 of total credits to be taken at level 8, and no more than 2/3rds at level 10.
Number of places available: 2 full year places or 4 semester places.
It is better for Law students to come for a full-year exchange, if possible. The reason for this is purely because UE offers a number of full-year courses which can only be taken by students who will study in Edinburgh for the full duration. However we are also happy for single semester students to join us.
Housing: Students studying on exchange for the full academic year are guaranteed university accommodation if they apply by the deadline of 16th August. Students studying on exchange for one semester are not guaranteed university accommodation and advised to search for private accommodation.
Compulsory Attendance: It is now compulsory for all exchange students to attend and engage fully in the classes that they are enrolled in at the University of Edinburgh. If students consistently fail to attend or engage with their studies here, then this will be escalated within their College and may result in the ultimate exclusion of the student. Students will be encouraged to speak with their Personal Tutor or the Student Support team in their school if they are experiencing difficulties (i.e. academic, personal, health). This will enable them to support the student in improving their attendance, their wider engagement with their studies, and importantly to address any issues that may be of concern to them.
