Introduction

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. www.ed.ac.uk Quick Facts & Figures 2/3rds of the world’s nationalities study at Edinburgh.
