When Scotland gained this, its fourth university, in 1582, England had only two. Today, it has more than 24,000 students - three times as many as its staff complement - and an annual turnover exceeding 400 million. Edinburgh has seven campuses, the newest being the Chancellor's Building site, home to a 40 million medical school connected to Edinburgh Royal Infirmary by a warren of corridors.
