Located in the heart of Scotland's capital city, the University of Edinburgh, with its ancient and modern buildings, is one of the most distinguished research institutions in Europe. It's long and storied history as a seat of learning, the lively student atmosphere and the elegance and striking beauty of the city, make this a favorite study abroad destination for students.
The University, with a population of over 20,000 students, offers an extensive range of courses in the arts, humanities, social sciences, science and engineering, languages, divinity studies, education, law, medicine and veterinary medicine, and music. The College of Humanities has also devised a number of study abroad special interest programs in order to assist students in finding and selecting courses within a specialized area of academic inquiry. Examples include study programs in pre-law; Muslim-Christian studies; religious studies; and Scottish studies. Its primary campus built around George's Square, with its views of Edinburgh Castle and the great craggy rocks of Arthur's seat, is composed of Georgian stone buildings in keeping with the history of Edinburgh's Old Town. The city is a real student town and you can move easily between your classes and life in the city within a matter of minutes.
