The University of Edinburgh. Influencing the world since 1583 

For more than 400 years, our people and their achievements have rewritten history time and again. We’ve explored space, revolutionised surgery, published era-defining books and introduced to the world many inventions, discoveries and ideas from penicillin to Dolly the sheep, believing that anything is possible.


Our experts continue in that tradition, consistently striving to uncover the unknown, transforming science fiction into fact, and unveiling new possibilities for future generations. We embrace the vision of shared ideas and interdisciplinary research, which spans across the traditional boundaries of subject areas.


Quick Facts & Figures

  1. 2/3rds of the world’s nationalities study at Edinburgh.       

    Our breadth of choice in undergraduate and postgraduate programmes covers most of the humanities, social science, medicine, vet medicine, science and engineering, as well as the arts.      

  2. Based on the quality and breadth of our research, we have been rated 4th in the UK (2014 REF).       
  3. We are in the capital city of Scotland, home to the Scottish Parliament, an ancient volcanic rock and a castle, and voted the UK's safest city.       

    Our graduates are highly respected and employable: 90% of our undergraduates are in employment or further study six months after graduating and we are rated 32nd in the world for graduate employability.        

    We’ve invested £60m in enhancing our main library - a key learning and teaching resource and the 3rd largest academic library in Europe.       

    We are the 3rd highest scoring sporting institution in the UK (BUCS 2016/17) for the third year running.
