University of Edinburgh
Founded in 1583, the University of Edinburgh is one of the UK’s oldest and most prestigious universities. Over the last four centuries, the university has built an enviable reputation for excellence in both research and teaching, attracting some of the world’s leading thinkers to work and study there. The University is a member of a number of prestigious organisations like Universitas 21, League of European Research Universities, Russell Group, Coimbra Group, Fairtrade, Education UK and Quality Assurance Agency for Higher Education.
A range of study options and programmes are available for international students at the University of Edinburgh, including undergraduate, postgraduate, short term study abroad programmes and foundation programmes. The University's foundation and pathway programmes provides opportunities for talented students whose high school qualifications are not accepted for direct entry to an undergraduate degree, or whose first language is not English to access degree programmes within arts, humanities and social sciences.
The university's global reputation for teaching and research helps them to attract the international research community’s sharpest minds, which in turn means world-class teaching for their students. The institution's world-class academics are leaders in their fields, conducting ground breaking research that directly informs the teaching students receive. As a student at Edinburgh they will work alongside these academics and learn about the very latest developments in their subject. The University of Edinburgh also offers several prestigious scholarships for international students and its Careers Service also offers a range of internship programmes exclusively for University of Edinburgh students.
