Official communications

Email

Email is the formal means of communication by the University. All students on this programme are given an official University email.

Your email address is made up of: s + your student number@sms.ed.ac.uk (e.g. s1101234@sms.ed.ac.uk).

You can access your email via the MyEd portal: www.myed.ed.ac.uk

IMPORTANT!

Your University email is your official email and will be used for a variety of essential communications. You must access and manage this account regularly as you will be sent vital information from time to time, for example on exam arrangements. It is assumed that you have opened and acted on these communications. Failure to do so will not be an acceptable excuse or ground for appeal.

Information on forwarding your email to another mail service can be found at: www.ed.ac.uk/information-services/computing/comms-and-collab/email/webmail/help/imp/filters/forwarding

Updating Personal Details

Via Student Self Service, you can view and edit personal and study details within your MyEd Portal. The Student Personal Details channel allows you to review your contact details, address information & emergency contacts. It also provides the ability to edit certain personal details directly.

Other Forms of Communication

Mobile phones are used in emergency situations and students are encouraged to update their contact details via the MyEd portal. At times we will write to you; it is important to keep both your semester and permanent home address up to date. This is also done via the MyEd portal.
