If you wish to conduct a research placement at the University of Edinburgh, you will need to contact the relevant School you are interested in working in and find an appropriate supervisor at Edinburgh for your research.
You can contact the relevant School directly to find out how to apply as a visiting research student.
If you are coming under the Erasmus traineeship programme then your placement may be limited to 12 weeks or under. It will be the School’s decision whether they can offer any such placement opportunities.
Please remember that your research placement will need to be related to your degree at your home university. The University of Edinburgh does not currently have opportunities for students wishing to conduct an administration-type work placement; it's only possible to apply to come to Edinburgh under the visiting research route.
If you are a non-EU national, please also check your visa requirements.
