University of Edinburgh
Edinburgh, Scotland’s capital city, is one of the most beautiful cities in all of Europe, and presents a cross section of ancient Scottish culture and modern cosmopolitan society. From the historic Edinburgh Castle one can view the busy shoppers all along Princess Street, giving the spectator a sense of old and new Scotland.
Edinburgh prides itself on a extremely diverse population of peoples from all over the world, and a rich cultural and artistic heritage. Each year the city plays host to internationally renowned events such as the Edinburgh International Arts, Fringe, Film, TV and Science Festivals. Edinburgh also provides a perfect getaway to other cities and popular destinations in Scotland, the rest of Great Britain, and Continental Europe.
The University of Edinburgh, founded over 400 years ago, is one of the most respected universities in the world. New College, the home of the Faculty of Divinity, has a prominent international, ecumenical, and religiously diverse character, giving students the opportunity to learn and dialogue with people from other countries, other Christian denominations, and other world religions. The faculty staff consists of internationally recognised scholars, and New College has a strong history of graduating some of the most well known biblical and theological scholars.
