MSc Mental Health in Children and Young People:Psychological Approaches - Batch of 2023
3.5
PlacementsInfrastructureFacultyCrowd & Campus LifeValue for Money
Everyone's experiences are wildly different, I've had a fantastic year - it's also luck-based.
Tips: Get to know as much as you can about the course, don't get swayed by the ranking system. The staff is lovely and there's a big support team for all kinds of concerns. I have heard about incidents of racism/racial sensitivity but haven't experienced it myself in the university, as I live outside.
Likes (Public transportation): Edinburgh's inter-city and intra-city connectivity is fantastic. I live in the city centre so it's an advantage but otherwise, the big cities are just a train ride away. Apart from buses, there are trams too. Ubers & other cabs work smoothly. It's also safe to use transport at night.
Dislikes (Value for money): With the inflation and increase in tuition, I myself wouldn't want to pay 3000 pounds extra (If I were joining the 23-24 batch) knowing there's hardly been a change in structure/assessment criteria. It is expensive + living in the capital is never cheap but there are lots of part-time job opportunities and financial aid you can ask from the university.

Great, amazing place to gain knowledge and build connections.
Tips: It is very different from Indian education system. I didn't experience any cultural shift as I studied during covid time. Also, I didn't avail any internships. However, I did a company-sponsored dissertation which helped me in gaining practical knowledge and thereby helped me in getting a full time job.
Dislikes (Part time work): The part time opportunities on campus are great. The average pay is 10 Pound per hour. However, managing work alongside a full-time degree can be a little tricky. But with good time management, it is possible. The off campus part time opportunities are also available in Edinburgh.

In QS ranking its top 15 in the world.
Tips: Be flexible. You'll get fantastic international exposure and will develop the invaluable skill of cross cultural communication. The professors are some of the best around the globe. Focus on being innovative in your assignments. Always do weekly readings.
Likes (Public transportation): Public transport is available 24x7, every 10 minutes, from anywhere in and around Edinburgh. Very safe for girls, even at night. Everything in Edinburgh is max 30-40 mins away from the city centre. There is less traffic. Extremely gorgeous view from the buses. Edinburgh was awarded the best city in the world this year.
Dislikes (Part time work): Students will have to look for part time jobs in the city. University has limited part time job availability. Many part time job options are available in the city though. A job is easy to find and you'll be able to pay for your monthly expenses on your own very easily.
