Edinburgh University Student Hub


The University of Edinburgh Asia Scotland Hub connects the Asia Scotland Institute to the extremely vibrant student body of the university. Our active community of Ambassadors ensures a grass-roots approach in encouraging the next generation to engage with Asia. 

“I have attended multiple events by the Asia Scotland Institute who have brought in speakers from a wide range of industries. As a Finnish citizen, I found the events particularly informative as I have not interacted on a conversational level with professionals from Asia,. Listening to various speakers such as Kiyohiko Nishimura, Ex Deputy Governor of the Bank of Japan, helped me understand the opportunities and impact of the various Asian economies”

-Dante Jarhos, 3rd year Economics Student

FIRESDIECHATWe are currently expanding our Student Hub initiative. Being an Ambassador at the Asia Scotland Institute will provide you with a hands-on learning opportunity.

We are introducing Fire Side Chats, in which students are able to speak privately with our guest speakers prior to our events. This is a great opportunity to meet global leaders, ranging from CEO’s of global companies, from heads of state to renowned economists and successful authors.
