Founded in 1583, the University of Edinburgh is consistently ranked as one of the top 50 universities in the world, and was placed 17th in the 2013/14 QS World University Rankings. It is one of the largest and most diverse universities in the UK, with over 32,000 students from 130 countries studying across more than 100 academic disciplines. Our thriving postgraduate community benefits from a strong commitment to high-quality, innovative teaching set against the University’s inspiring research culture: the latest report from the Quality Assurance Agency awarded us the highest rating possible for the quality of the student learning experience, while the latest UK Research Assessment Exercise judged 96% of our academic departments to be producing world-leading research. Edinburgh was one of the first UK universities to develop commercial links with industry, government and the professions, and in 2013/14 ranked 15th in the world for graduate employability. Our outstanding facilities include Europe’s third largest academic library, state-of-the-art research installations and an award-winning Centre for Sport and Exercise, all set against the backdrop of the vibrant and historic City of Edinburgh, a world heritage site, seat of the Scottish Parliament and home to the world’s largest arts festival.
