The University of Edinburgh was built on philanthropy - a bequest from the Bishop of Orkney led to its foundation in 1583.

Thanks to the generosity of supporters like you, our students receive the highest quality learning opportunities and our medical and veterinary medical research has directly helped in more than 100 countries. For example, University researchers discovered:

  • carbon dioxide
  • chloroform anaesthesia
  • Hepatitis B vaccine
  • in-vitro fertilisation
