Following changes to the UK visa regulations, the UK Border Agency (UKBA) continues to recognise the University of Edinburgh as a top ranked institution, granting us ‘Highly Trusted Sponsor’ status.
The University of Edinburgh broadly welcomes these changes, which:
The University of Edinburgh is proud to have been attracting the brightest and best students from around the world for over four centuries. This year is no different and we have the privilege of welcoming and working with over 9,000 international students from over 140 nations.

Given the recent changes to legislation, The International Office has revised their immigration guidance notes for students.
Further information on changes to the UK student immigration system is on the UK Border Agency (UKBA) website.
