Fantastic, helpful faculty. Great modern facilities. Very open, always lots of seminars, workshops, and other events. I learned a lot, really a great place to intern.
None really, I suppose Edinburgh isn't the biggest of cities, but it has enough of everything I'd say.
I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at University of Edinburgh (Edinburgh, Scotland (UK)) in February 2017.
I was rather bemused by the department's interview process - I was invited to interview, and given 4 working days notice of the date, time and presentation topic to present. I was unable to attend the date and time given due to a work obligation with my current employer and asked that another date be provided - I was uninvited from the interview panel at that point. However, in what I can only describe as a pretty unorganised turn of events, I was called the night before, at 5pm and asked to come in to interview infront of a panel of 4 staff members the next day - bearing in mind, they had formally uninvited me from interviewing via email.
During the interview, I found members of the panel to be ageist in the extreme, very judgemental and quite uninformed as to the world outside of Third Sector. They quite clearly had no interest in hiring me from the beginning, and I really did feel like I had been asked to interview to tick a box in their interviewing criteria.
Any questions I asked of the panel regarding their experience at the University were dismissed. I would not interview with them in future.
