About the University of Edinburgh and Scholarship
The University of Edinburgh stands as a venerable institution with a rich history dating back to its founding in 1582. Established by the town council under a royal charter of King James VI, the university officially opened its doors in 1583, making it one of Scotland’s four ancient universities and the sixth-oldest continuously operating university in the English-speaking world. Its pivotal role in the Scottish Enlightenment earned Edinburgh the moniker “Athens of the North,” solidifying its status as a chief intellectual center.
Today, Edinburgh maintains a prominent position on the global academic stage. It is ranked 22nd in the world by the QS World University Rankings, 30th by the Times Higher Education World University Rankings, and 38th by the Academic Ranking of World Universities. As a member of prestigious research-intensive university associations such as the Coimbra Group, League of European Research Universities, Russell Group, Una Europa, and Universitas 21, Edinburgh exemplifies a commitment to excellence in research and education.
Financially robust, the university reported a total income of £1.262 billion in the fiscal year ending July 31, 2022, with a noteworthy £331.6 million sourced from research grants and contracts. Boasting the third-largest endowment in the UK, Edinburgh’s campuses in the city feature numerous historically and architecturally significant buildings, contributing to the rich tapestry of the Old Town.
In terms of enrollment, Edinburgh stands as the seventh-largest university in the UK, with an impressive 75,000 undergraduate applications annually. Its popularity is underscored by its ranking as the second-most sought-after university in the UK based on the volume of applications. Edinburgh’s commitment to academic excellence is further evident in its eighth-highest average UCAS points among British universities for new entrants in 2020.
Maintaining regal connections, the university has enjoyed ties to the royal family, with Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh, serving as its chancellor from 1953 to 2010 and Anne, Princess Royal, assuming the role in March 2011.
Edinburgh’s global impact extends to graduate employability, earning the university the 23rd position worldwide and the 4th in the UK in the 2015 Global Employability University Ranking. This recognition is a testament to the university’s commitment to producing graduates sought after by international recruiters.
For prospective students eyeing advanced studies in chemical engineering, the university offers scholarships for those commencing the MSc in Advanced Chemical Engineering program in the academic year 2023-2024.
