Brief Description of Organization:

The University of Edinburgh is one of the largest and most successful universities in the UK with an international reputation as a centre of academic excellence. The Universities international character is reflected in its student population, which comprises of 2,000 European students and 3,442 International students (out of a total population of around 24,500 students) from over 120 different countries worldwide. It can also be found in its truly international staff and in its joint research and other links with overseas universities, institutes, companies and governments.
The University’s position as one of the world’s leading research universities was reaffirmed by the publication of the UK wide Research assessment Exercise (RAE2008) results. These results reinforce the University’s ranking as 23rd in the world in the Times Higher Education’s international league table of universities, published earlier in 2008. The RAE2008 results place the University in the top 5 in the UK and number one in Scotland by volume of 4* 'world-leading' research active staff.
