For all students S4/S5/S6

YourEd is a secondary schools partnership scheme designed for schools and pupils who may feel unsure if Higher Education (HE) or the University of Edinburgh is for them. They take the University to you: sharing their resources and expertise to bring you into university community at an earlier stage.

YourEd will be offering in recorded format on their Media Hopper channel so that you and your pupils can access it at your own leisure. For June, pupils will be able to access the Uni Essentials sessions, which are already uploaded on their channel, and over the next week, they will also upload Me and My Degree sessions from Former Pupils. They are also offering the following live sessions for your senior phase pupils:

·       23rd June at 14:00-15:30, live Personal Statement Workshop (and a 40min pre-recorded session will be available on our Media Hopper channel next week)

·       25th June at 14:00-15:00, live Q&A with Former Pupils from Alva Academy, Balwearie HS, Kirkcaldy HS, Portobello HS (on both days), St David’s RC HS, and Wallace HS

·       26th June at 14:00-15:00, live Q&A with Former Pupils from Deans Community HS, Portobello HS (on both days), Ross HS, Selkirk HS, and St Augustine’s RC HS
