Founded in 1583 by the town council, the University of Edinburgh is the last of the four ancient Scottish universities, after St Andrews, Glasgow and Aberdeen. It rose to prominence in the 18th century principally thanks to its school of Medicine, and most of its famous Gothic buildings were erected in the follwing century.

Today, the university has more than 32,000 students (one third are postgraduates). It counts 20 Nobel laureates and is now one of the most reputed universities in the world - especially in Medicine.
