Scotland has more world-class universities per head of population than any other country except Luxembourg.
We also have a reputation for excellence in our education system. Five of our universities consistently rank in the top 200 in the world. (Source: Times Higher Education, 2016)
Scotland has the monopoly on Britain’s share of ancient universities. Four of the top five universities in Scotland were founded before 1600, with the oldest, St Andrews, dating back to 1413.
These higher education institutes work with over 26,000 companies every year to turn R&D into new products.
All of Scotland's universities have been recognised as producing innovative research, and 77% of all research in Scottish institutions has been graded as world-leading or internationally excellent.
