About the University of Edinburgh

The University of Edinburgh, with a student enrollment of over 20,000, is a dominant presence in one of Europe's most attractive cities. Founded in 1583, this Scottish university boasts a tradition of excellence in eight major Faculties. The University's classroom and research facilities, libraries, Student Union and residence halls are located throughout Edinburgh, making this a true university city. Among its graduates are notable scholars, statesman and literary figures: David Hume, Walter Scott, J. M Barrie, Robert Louis Stevenson, Arthur Conan Doyle, Charles Darwin and UK Prime Minister Gordon Brown. Advancements in science and medicine, biotechnology and computer-based disciplines contribute to the University's international reputation.

Eastern Scotland. Edinburgh (495,000)  is the capital city and seat of the Parliament. The city is both ancient, with its 12th century castle dominating the cityscape, as well as modern and cosmopolitan with an impressive range of cultural venues and events. Edinburgh is called The Festival City, as host of the world’s largest arts festival each summer. The music scene is eclectic – from big name performers at Edinburgh Castle to jazz and blues, hip hop and folk performances, from opera and concerts to local entertainment in pubs and cafes. Students can explore the Scottish Highlands, the many beautiful lochs or the Isle of Skye; venture to the rest of the UK or travel from Edinburgh’s International Airport to Europe.
