The University of Edinburgh has a long- standing reputation as a globally recognized institution; having been at the forefront of international education since its founding in 1583. In recent years the University has striven to retain a strong position in the global arena, in terms of research, quality and accessibility of education and overall international influence. The University’s internationalization strategy sets out a plan to maintain the institution’s global standing, but also proposes a number of long-term aims. These include increasing the number of international students as well as facilitating globalization by embedding it in the ethos of the institution; something which is certainly of crucial importance in today’s multinational society (University of Edinburgh, 2009).
