A huge welcome to our MSc Class of 2016 who’ve started with us this week! I’m hoping the next blog post will be from one of you offering words of wisdom perhaps on the differences between undergraduate and postgraduate study, what it’s like returning to study if you’ve been away from university for a while, or helpful tips on Edinburgh. I will start off with recommending Edinburgh Zoo, partly because it allows me a chance to share a gratuitous ring-tailed lemur picture (thanks to our Magnus Hagdorn for this). It also reminds me of some of the advice we gave in our Welcome meeting on Tuesday- you’ll make some great friendships over this year that will last a lifetime, and don’t forget to come to us for help if you need support during your studies. Now over to you! (email Alison on firstname.lastname@example.org if you’d like to blog for us).
