    Student living in Edinburgh
    The capital city of Scotland is surprisingly compact and packs a mean punch. The city boasts diverse culture and amazing landscapes along with a vibrant and bustling nightlife. There are various eclectic bars, restaurants, pubs and shops where students can hang out after class. In the heart of the city, you’ll find the famous Edinburgh Castle. When you want to relax, take a walk up the Royal Mile which is Edinburgh's famous street, and stop for a pint in one of the traditional Scottish pubs located on the way.

    Getting around
    There are two major train stations in the city of Edinburgh, there’s Haymarket which is closer to Murrayfield Stadium and Waverley which is closer to the University of Edinburgh campus. Most students prefer walking or cycling since everywhere they would want to go is within easy accessible distance. Students can take Lothian Buses that run throughout the city and into Midlothian and East Lothian, as this is an easier and cheaper option for them. When the weather is pleasant, grab a bicycle and go for a ride around the cobbled streets in the city.
