La Universidad de Edimburgo es nombrada la Universidad más sostenible del Reino Unido

11th Nov 2022

La Universidad de Edimburgo ha sido nombrada la universidad más sostenible del Reino Unido tras el lanzamiento de la Clasificación mundial de universidades QS 2023 para la sostenibilidad.

La Universidad ocupó el cuarto lugar a nivel mundial (de 700 instituciones de educación superior) y obtuvo una puntuación de 98,3 sobre 100 en impacto social y fue la única institución con sede en el Reino Unido que figura entre las 10 mejores del mundo en impacto ambiental con una puntuación de 81,5 sobre 100.

El profesor Peter Mathieson, director y vicecanciller de la Universidad de Edimburgo, dijo: "Estas clasificaciones reflejan los esfuerzos de nuestro personal y estudiantes para hacer que la Universidad de Edimburgo sea más ambiental y socialmente responsable".

"Nuestra propia estrategia alinea a la Universidad con los Objetivos de Desarrollo Sostenible de las Naciones Unidas, y continuamos brindando un cambio positivo a nivel local y global a través de nuestra investigación académica, educación, operaciones y asociaciones. Estoy muy complacido de ver que se reconoce nuestro progreso".

Este es el primer año que QS ha hecho de la sostenibilidad una parte clave del marco de QS World University Rankings, ya que más estudiantes que nunca prestan atención a cómo una universidad se compromete con la agenda ambiental y social.

Jessica Turner, directora ejecutiva de QS, dijo: "QS tiene como objetivo brindar a los futuros estudiantes información independiente sobre los registros universitarios para mejorar la sostenibilidad y ayudar a las universidades a monitorear tu progreso mientras se esfuerzan por implementar tus estrategias ESG y encontrar soluciones a desafíos globales sin precedentes".

"Last year, I reached out to SI-UK, Jaipur for my Master’s journey, and it has been an incredibly fulfilling and successful experience. From guiding me through the application process to assisting with letters of recommendation and statement of purpose, and even following up with universities, SI-UK provided comprehensive support at every step of the journey. They went the extra mile, assisting with admissions, fee processing, accommodation arrangements, visa guidance, and coordination on medical checkups. I firmly believe that my admission to the University of Birmingham wouldn't have been possible without SI-UK. I highly recommend SI-UK to anyone seeking admission to a UK or Ireland university."
