Afidah's story

What is your favourite  memory of living in Edinburgh?

Walking on Princes Street and enjoying the Christmas stalls and the Fringe festival in the summer. Heriot-Watt campus with its lake and the sunken garden.

What is your favourite place in Edinburgh? 

The Botanical Gardens.

Why would you recommend Edinburgh as a place to study? 

It's big enough to get the feel and conveniences if living in a metropolitan city yet retains its connection to history with Edinburgh Castle right in town. I love the mix of city and nature too with the gardens alongside Princes Street and the view from Calton Hill.

What kind of extra-curricular activities did you take part in while living in Edinburgh?

Archery club, walking, sightseeing & movies.
