8. Not needing to fork out for accommodation at Hogmanay.

9. The infamous Hive.

If you never went to Hive, did you even go to Edinburgh? #HIVETILFIVE

10. And Teviot nachos.

Nowhere else can ever compare. A staple to every Edinburgh student’s diet.

11. The capital city’s weird and wonderful people.

15. The views from inside the David Hume Tower.

How did you ever concentrate?

This time last year – Edinburgh, 13 degrees. Warsaw right now, 1 degree. Missing the sun… ☀️

17. Walking around campus in the snow.

18. Or in the sunshine.

19. And discovering the most perfect spots to study in.

If only graduate working life looked like this.

20. Thanks for having us, Edinburgh.
