University of Edinburgh

The Fulbright University of Edinburgh Award covers a one-year taught Master's programme at the University of Edinburgh.

The University of Edinburgh is the sixth oldest university in the United Kingdom and the oldest civic foundation in the English-speaking world. Today, the University is home to almost 50,000 students spread across five campuses around the city. These campuses also house some of the world’s most important collections, including art, musical instruments, natural history, geology, anatomy, rare books and manuscripts. 

The University is ranked 22nd in the world (QS world university rankings 2024) and 83% of their research was deemed world leading or internationally excellent in the most recent assessment. 

Scotland’s inspiring capital will be the backdrop to your studies. One of Europe’s great cultural hubs and a stimulating place to study, Edinburgh is an irresistible blend of history, natural beauty and modern city life.  

“Edinburgh is one of Europe’s most beautiful cities, draped across a series of rocky hills overlooking the sea.”  Lonely Planet, travel guide
