My first time in Edinburgh: Natalie Foster

Navitas UK have a central team of Admissions and Conversions officers who are based in Oxford in the UK in the Admissions and Recruitment Centre (The ARC). They work really closely with the staff in the colleges to ensure agents gets as smooth and quick a turnaround as possible on applications to all ten UK colleges. We thought it would be a good idea to get the team out and about to explore the cities in which the colleges are located, and we welcomed Natalie Foster to EIC. Here’s what she thought of her trip:


Hi, i’m Natalie Foster and I am based in the ARC for Navitas UK.


I recently visited Edinburgh on my first ever trip to Scotland and I already can’t wait to go back!


As I was only in the city the one day, the lovely Rachel had the BEST idea to show me the sights….a bus tour that served afternoon tea! If you want to see as much of Edinburgh as possible, I would definitely recommend giving one of these a go!! We saw many famous sights such as Edinburgh Castle and the Old Town, whilst working our way through a variety of sandwiches and cakes. They even let me sit in the driver’s seat.


We then went and visited the Craiglockhart Campus which is home to a lecture theatre like nowhere else, the Lindsay Stewart Lecture Theatre. This campus is ideal for our EIC students, with a well-equipped library, digital language labs equipped with the latest software and Wi-Fi network access available throughout the whole campus. We also visited our EIC Bainfield accommodation which was definitely some of the best University accommodation I have been to.

To end the day we went up Calton Hill and watched the sun set over the city, one of the most beautiful sights I have ever seen!

I can’t wait to go back and visit Edinburgh, one day definitely wasn’t long enough!
