In common with the other ‘ancient’ Scottish Universities, and in contrast to the position in nearly all of the other pre-1992 Universities which are established by Royal Charters, the University of Edinburgh is constituted by the Universities (Scotland) Acts 1858 to 1966.
The Universities (Scotland) Acts make specific provision for three major bodies in the governance of the University:
Acts and Secondary Legislation
Curators of Patronage
Powers of Delegation
Other Useful Information
Education Act 1994
