Being one of the world’s leading universities, the University of Edinburgh attracts staff and students from all nationalities, possessing different backgrounds, skills and experiences. In turn, they share fresh ideas, making a great contribution to academic curriculum development, and help give everyone an opportunity to experience different cultures and broaden personal horizons. Therefore, the University “speaks” with its staff and students, and promotes a positive culture, where racism – in any form – is unacceptable.
