Read The Skinny Student Handbook Scotland

The Skinny Student Handbook is released annually in September to reach new and returning students with a rundown of what their city has to offer for the year ahead. This guide aims to ensure that our readers are ahead of the crowds on the best bars and clubs, and in the know about the most interesting music, films and art that each city has to offer.

Produced each year by a team of recent graduates alongside the regular team at The Skinny monthly magazine, our Student Handbook provides the most up to date information and experiences from students in Edinburgh, Glasgow and Dundee. With handy maps, venue profiles and year round guides to each city we distribute 20,000 copies every September.

You can visit our Students section to find out if you have picked the right city for you, get the lowdown on the best of the Scottish music scene or visit our what’s on events guide if you want to know what to go and see today.

To keep on top of recommendations, we whittle down every week’s events in a useful Top Ten Events guide via our weekly eNewsletter Zap which you can sign up for here.

You can also be the first to know about the best Scotland has to offer culturally by subscribing to The Skinny monthly magazine here, receiving a copy each month straight to your door.
