    I've received an offfer to study chemistry at Edinburgh, and I am going to the offer in April but I know that I won't get any informative feedback on what it's really like studying at Edinburgh since the students won't nessesarily tell the honest truth. Can any student tell me what is it like studying chemistry or science in generally at Edinburgh, please be as honest as you can my future depends on this. Thank you in advance.

    I'm an Informatics student, but you're going to have to be a bit more specific with your question

    What are the lectures like? Do you get any support if you fall behind? Is the teaching good?

    Lectures are what you'd expect. The lecturer walks in, starts promptly and powers through the material on the syllabus. Slides are generally put up in advance.

    For Informatics/CompSci, there is a tool called Piazza which is an anonymous Q&A system to ask questions on the topic if you're confused. There's also a Peer Assisted Learning scheme (InfPals) if you're stuck. Tutors are also keen to help.

    Teaching is generally OK. Flipped Learning is used for the maths courses which isn't really my style - I tend to skip those lectures.
