Why Study in Edinburgh?

Edinburgh is a city which is famous around the world for its history and beautiful architecture.  It has always been important in the areas of science and literature.  Dolly the sheep was created here in 1996 and the world famous character of Sherlock Holmes was inspired by Conan Doyle's lecturer at the University Medical School in the nineteenth century.

It is home to four respected universities including the prestigious University of Edinburgh, founded in 1582.  There are many opportunities for foreign students to continue their studies here.

There are many interesting and beautiful places to visit: The Castle, Holyrood Palace, The National Museums and Art Galleries, The Royal Yacht Britannia and the nearby Pentland Hills.
