Edinburgh Futures Institute is for students who want to work across disciplinary boundaries to address real problems, thinking deeply about the social implications of technological change, and learning in new and creative ways.

The Institute will offer a combination of named programmes in key areas, as well as a portfolio of project-led, interdisciplinary programmes designed to address critical aspects of our shared social and technological futures.

We are developing a unique hybrid teaching model which will enable students to choose when to be on campus and when to be at a distance, as well as developing new kinds of vibrant study and interaction spaces in the EFI building.

We want EFI Education to be accessible locally, nationally and globally, and to set a new standard for world class interdisciplinary higher education.
