Clothing and equipment

In the summer months, Edinburgh has a moderate climate but the weather can be changeable. We recommend that students bring clothes that can be layered so that they can adapt to different temperatures when necessary. Students should also bring a light waterproof jacket.

As part of the social programme, walks will be arranged to the famous Arthur’s Seat and to Calton Hill, a UNESCO World Heritage site. Comfortable shoes are essential to take part in these activities.

Students will also be encouraged to take part in games sessions, and they will have access to the excellent facilities at our Centre for Sports and Exercise, so it is recommended that students bring sportswear.
