THE UNIVERSITY OF EDINBURGH
This traditional University ceremony welcomes new students to the University community. The Welcome Ceremony is the University’s official welcome address. The Principal and Vice-Chancellor, Professor Sir Timothy O’Shea, will officially welcome you to the University. You will also get the opportunity to hear from a number of student Office Bearers, including your Students’ Association President Patrick Kilduff and senior members of University staff. This is a very high demand event, please arrive early to maximise your chance of gaining entry: Doors open at 1.30pm and the ceremony commences at 2.15pm. There are limited seats so if McEwan Hall has reached capacity you can still experience this inspirational event through a live stream at George Square Lecture Theatre and in the Library Bar.
