World-class city

Scotland's inspiring capital will be the backdrop to your studies — an irresistible blend of history, natural beauty and modern city life.

Edinburgh is a beautiful, historic city which has regularly been voted as one of the most desirable places to live in the world.  Large enough to offer something for everyone, but small enough to feel like home, Edinburgh is a modern, sophisticated and beautiful European city with a diverse, multicultural community.

Our city mixes architectural beauty and history with a lively, fun environment. It offers an exciting array of entertainment, history, culture and sport, with the lush Scottish countryside and coastline just a few miles away. It is a safe and prosperous city, with an abundance of parks and green spaces for recreation and reflection.

The city centre also plays host to a carnival atmosphere every August, when the world-famous Edinburgh Festival takes over the town.

I knew I had to attend a university that was surrounded by fantastic entertainment, energetic nightlife, and an unrivalled character. Edinburgh was the place for me.”
