The University of Edinburgh is one of the most diverse in the UK, with staff and students from 137 countries. Of its 26,400 students, 25% are from abroad. This diversity is reflected in the mix of nationalities at the School of Physics & Astronomy where people from all over the world work and study alongside each other. Our staff are well aware of the big cultural and intellectual changes involved in moving to a different country, and we work to make the transition easier by creating a welcoming, friendly environment throughout the School.
