About Edinburgh University
Edinburgh University is a public research university in Edinburgh, Scotland. King James VI granted it a royal charter in 1582, and it officially opened in 1583, making it one of Scotland’s four ancient universities and the sixth-oldest institution in continuous existence in the English-speaking world.
The institution was instrumental in Edinburgh’s rise to prominence as a major intellectual centre during the Scottish Enlightenment, earning the city the moniker “Athens of the North.”
The university includes five main campuses in Edinburgh, including many historical and architecturally significant buildings such as those in the Old Town. The University of Edinburgh receives over 60,000 undergraduate applications each year, making it the second-most famous university in the United Kingdom in terms of application numbers.
With 35,375 students in 2019/20, the University of Edinburgh is the eighth-largest university in the United Kingdom. In addition, in 2019, the university had the seventh-highest average UCAS points among British universities for new entrants. The institution maintains ties to the British royal family, with Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh serving as chancellor from 1953 to 2010 and Anne, Princess Royal serving as chancellor since March 2011.
