Message for Student Parents

Please see below for your information from the Student Parents Rep:

Hi all,

This is Student Parents Rep Steve Anderson here. Are you aware that there are approximately 3,400 Student Parents here at Edinburgh University? And not just that, our active community is ever increasing and even at times thriving. We have regular meet ups – both in person and online – usually with complimentary nibbles. We you like to know more? Either send me an email at studentparents@eusa.ed.ac.uk or join our social media group(s)

Here’s a link to our WhatsApp group should you wish to join:

and similarly, our Facebook group:

For our next in person catch up, I’ll be taking my boys to the student election results night in Potterrow on Friday March 10th, so I thought why not just put a shout out if anyone wants to meet up with or without family beforehand somewhere in Teviot Row on Bristo Square (Central campus). There won’t be any nibbles at this one – that will come later on in March/ April – just a catch up. I’ll be there around 4-5.30pm. All very welcome to come along 

 And in the meantime, look after yourselves.

Steve. 🙂

The Festival of Legal Possibilities will have panels showcasing career paths and opportunities available for students.  We know that large scale commercial firms are frequently on campus to provide information in respect of the career options that they provide. But what else is available? What about those who do not feel represented in mainstream commercial firm recruitment?

The festival will have sessions exploring the following:

Day 1: Diverse Careers: Diverse Careers, Intersectionality, and Under-representation / Women in Law / Ethnicity and Culture / LGBTQ+

Day 2: Advocacy Careers: Judicial, Mediation and Tribunal Careers / Becoming an Advocate

Day 3: Solicitor Careers: LawPALs Presents / In House Lawyers / Public & Third Sector

This is a free event.
