Your new e-mail address is
firstname.lastname@example.org (e.g. “email@example.com”)
Your username is the same as your Network log-in username.
Your e-mail password
This is the same as your Network password, but you must change this when you log-in.

University of Edinburgh
14-18 July 2008
Kickstart is presented jointly by Napier University, Queen Margaret University, the Scottish Agricultural College and the University of Edinburgh and is funded by East Lothian, Midlothian and West Lothian Councils with support from the Lottery Fund. It is free to S5 students.
Kickstart is designed to provide students with an experience of University. The aim is to give as real an experience as possible (without the essays and exams!) with a deeper insight into some of the subject areas offered within Higher Education. During the week two distinct programmes are run, one focussing on Humanities and Social Science subjects, and the other on Health, Science and Technology subjects. Both programmes also contain a strong focus on the essential skills required to succeed in school, college, university and the workplace. At the end of Kickstart, you should have a clearer idea about what you want to do when you finish school.
