Are you aware of all of the sources of support for online students at the University of Edinburgh? As well as the members of the MSc in Digital Education team, you can access advice and resources on a wide range of topics – including using the library, academic writing, counselling, disability, IT support, academic English, careers…. So you should never feel that ‘distance’ means no access to these resources.
For example, if you’re worried about studying at Masters level or starting your dissertation, you might want to investigate what the Institute for Academic Development has to offer. This includes workshops, guidance notes on various topics, a dissertation planner, a newsletter and blog.
If you need confidential, impartial information about financing your studies, wellbeing, or issues with the University, you are automatically a member of the Edinburgh University Students Assocation (EUSA) and can seek advice from The Advice Place.
Our Programme Handbook contains many links to useful sources of support.
