Ranked 22nd in the world (QS, 2024), the University of Edinburgh is one of the oldest in the United Kingdom, having been granted its Royal Charter in 1583. More than 200 years ago its central role in the Scottish Enlightenment helped create a bright new reason-based approach to the human condition. Today that legacy inspires a modern, forward-looking institution, world-class academics, and more than 40,000 students from across the globe who have chosen to study in Edinburgh.

As emphasised by Nadine Timmer-Bodenstein, MSc Management alum and Product Lead for 11:FS, the programme offers invaluable benefits beyond a technical skillset – “the school gave me the confidence I needed to believe that I could excel in a new field, the skills I needed to manage people and teams effectively, and the friends I needed to support me through these changes.”
