As a truly global university, rooted in Scotland’s capital city, The University of Edinburgh makes a significant, sustainable and socially responsible contribution to the world. Founded in 1583, one of the UK’s six ancient universities, Edinburgh seeks to utilise its knowledge to provide the highest quality research-led teaching and learning, challenge the boundaries of knowledge, research and disciplines, and to promote good health, economic growth, cultural understanding and social well-being.
The University of Edinburgh has one of the most international student and staff communities of any UK university, including approximately 1000 students from the African continent who choose to study with us. The University works closely with the African community in Scotland and the wider UK, national governments and enterprise to strengthen our position as a hub for critical discussion, innovation and academic study of African culture and issues affecting the continent, while contributing to positive change for the continent of Africa.
