Valued by employers

By the time students leave the Edinburgh Futures Institute they will experience working with other students, academics and employers from different disciplinary areas and sectors.

“Graduates will have been introduced to broad networks of people. Working in partnership is integral to each course. We work really closely with partner organisations in industry, community and government, so our students can have access to those networks by the time they graduate,” says Professor Sian Bayne, Director of Education at the Edinburgh Futures Institute (EFI).

“They will have developed the kind of confidence to take real risks with the way they approach problems but to take those risks responsibly. For example, we’re teaching students how to use and understand data-driven decision-making and inquiry but we’re also teaching students about the ethical and social implications of such methods. The impact of data on society is a significant and a profound challenge that we need to address sensitively and from an informed position.”

Learning at the Edinburgh Futures Institute

Our focus is on learning across many disciplinary perspectives, and our programmes are taught by academic experts from different subject areas. Teaching and research that addresses complex global and social challenges is at the heart of our programmes. As a student, you will develop creative, critical and data-informed thinking that cuts across traditional disciplinary boundaries.

Connect with communities, businesses, and organisations as you dive into issues linked to your own passions and professional goals. You will:

  • acquire knowledge and skills independently and at a high level
  • work analytically and according to interdisciplinary, impact oriented methods
  • co-create with businesses and communities to solve challenging problems
  • develop your abilities with teamwork and communication skills
  • graduate well prepared for today’s labour market

Join us as we challenge, create and make change happen.
