The University of Edinburgh is a Scottish public research university. It is one of Scotland's four ancient universities and the sixth-oldest university in continuous operation in the English-speaking world, having been granted a royal charter by King James VI in 1582 and officially opening in 1583. The university was instrumental in Edinburgh's rise to prominence as a major intellectual centre during the Scottish Enlightenment, earning the city the moniker "Athens of the North." It was previously known as Tunis College before being renamed the University of Edinburgh in 1583. In the same year, the university opened its doors for the first time. By the 18th century, it had become Scotland's best open institute. A medical school was built on the premises in 1875, and the halls were built in the medical buildings with funds donated by the then-famous politician, William McEwan. Anderson, the architect, designed and built the structure.
