Oh, hello from Edinbrah!

A smile from Monterey, CA!

HI THERE! Fancy meeting you here 🙂 My name is Carlotta and I’m a 4th year student at Edinburgh Napier University. I’m studying BA (Hons) Communications, Advertising & Public Relations and I’ll graduate in June 2013 (I can hardly believe it, time has gone by sooo quickly!). Given that, I’ll use this blog to write about my life as a university student in Edinburgh over the next few months. I’ll be happy to answer your questions about university life, Edinburgh, academics, entertainment in the city and so on. Stay tuned!



Update on July, 2013: I’m now a proud Edinburgh Napier Alumn! However, I’ll keep writing this blog because I keep receiving many questions from students from all over the world and would not want any of you to miss out on studying at Napier..! So roll on new blog posts! 🙂
