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 2 weeks. I interviewed at University of Edinburgh (Edinburgh, Scotland (UK)) in April 2017.
The whole process was quite fast. I applied online via their website. I was invited for an interview with only 7 days notice. Definitely have a thorough plan of how to get to the office where your interview is!! Make sure to allow yourself at least 40 minutes to get there if you aren't familiar with the university campus/Edinburgh (the office I had to find was in an extremely obscure place). I had 3 people on the interview panel, it felt rather informal and chatty. I felt very welcomed. The interview was only 20 minutes of straightforward Qs then a 10 minute task. The task was very easy - I had to find the name of the Head of Edinburgh Global using the university website, then find the contact details of a Student Services employee. The second part to the task was to write a reply to an email enquiry from a prospective student from America. I wasn't offered the position but found the process not that painful. A long trip for me to travel just for a 20 minute chat.
