Queen Margaret University, Edinburgh

Founded by women for women in 1875, the institution now known as Queen Margaret University, Edinburgh has long been recognised for tackling some of the most pressing needs of society including the role of women in society. Now, in 2009, with the attainment of university title and a relocation to a purpose-built new campus, QMU is set make a distinctive contribution to Scotland's university system and to society as a whole.

 QMU is dedicated to delivering learning, teaching and research in subjects which inform public policy and enhance people's lives. It has developed an international reputation for providing quality undergraduate and postgraduate education for the health professions, and in business, the arts and social sciences. Its specialist research centres have gained worldwide recognition and staff work collaboratively with local, national and international partners, on issues ranging from training nurses in Malawi to developing the profile of older people in the Lothians. The university is committed to lifelong learning and to developing innovative access routes into higher education.

QMU is helping Scotland succeed in the 21st century knowledge economy. The university teaches people how to heal, to innovate, to question, to share knowledge, to perform, to nurture and to manage. It is a university not just about wealth creation; but also about sustaining and bettering society. QMU meets real social needs within communities locally and internationally. It helps children affected by cleft palates and people suffering from chronic pain. It makes the arts accessible to the marginalised; and helps improve healthcare across nations.

 Sustainably small, innovative, dynamic, distinctive, focused, relevant
