Founded in 1583, the University of Edinburgh is one of the ancient Scottish Universities which hark back to a time when there were more universities in Scotland than in England. On this online campus tour, we will start at the historic Old College which was built by Robert Adam in 1827. I will then take you along Chambers Street, past a number of University departments and the the National Museum of Edinburgh, home to Dolly the cloned cheep. Edinburgh is renowned for its biogenetics.
Past the statue of the city's most famous dog Bobby, we will walk by the University Student Theatre Bedlam. You will then head into the heart of the University, which is in the centre of Edinburgh rather than at an isolated campus. Visit the McEwan Hall, the magnificent location for graduation ceremonies and the student unions of Potterow and Teviot. Moving on, visit the leafy George Square, home to many important departments and the renowned University Library designed by Basil Spence. The tour will conclude across the green meadows, at the Pollock Halls student accommodation by Holyrood Park.
