Workshops on the Edinburgh Campus are mostly held in the Edinburgh Campus Library.

96% of respondents to our latest survey agreed or strongly agreed that the workshop they attended would help with their studies, research or teaching.  

"Well presented", "full of information" and "unexpectedly enjoyable!" are only some of the overwhelmingly positive comments received about the workshops. 

Booking is required for all the Edinburgh Campus workshops and we operate a waiting list.

Materials from the Workshops, including PowerPoint Slides and handouts, can be accessed through the Organisations section on Vision.

If you require particular support or access arrangements please email and we will try to help where possible. Please give as much notice as you can.
