Edinburgh is the capital city of Scotland and seat of the Scottish parliament. Situated on a river estuary - the Firth of Forth - Edinburgh is famous for spectacular landmarks including the hill of Arthur's Seat as well as Castle Rock, upon which sits the historic Edinburgh Castle.
In the eighteenth-century, Edinburgh was known as the 'Athens of the North' as pioneering thinkers made ground-breaking developments in economic, scientific and philosophical theory. Many of them were associated with the city's ancient university. So, whilst studying a Masters in Edinburgh, you'll be part of a long tradition of scholars heading north for education and enlightenment!
Today Edinburgh is equally famous as a city of culture and has much to offer resident students.
The annual Edinburgh Festival and Edinburgh Fringe Festival are the world's largest arts, theatre and comedy events and in 2004 Edinburgh was recognised as the first UNESCO world city of literature.
Its famous authors include Robert Louis Stevenson, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, Muriel Spark and Ian Rankin as well as Sir Walter Scott (whose monument stands in the city centre and has famously been described as looking like 'a gothic rocket ship' ' you'll have to make your own mind up!).
Whilst studying in Edinburgh you'll also have the enviable experience of living in the home of Britain's most famous New Year's celebration: Hogmonay, which features a street festival, concert and spectacular firework display against the backdrop of Edinburgh Castle.
Edinburgh has always been renowned as a seat of learning. Its oldest university, The University of Edinburgh, was founded in 1583, making it one of Scotland's prestigious Ancient Universities. It is now one of the top 20 universities in the world and part of the UK's elite Russell Group.
There are three other universities in Edinburgh and around 37,000 resident students. In addition to the University of Edinburgh itself, the city is home to Heriot-Watt University, Edinburgh Napier University and Queen Margaret University.
