Queen Margaret University

Queen Margaret University, Edinburgh (QMU) was established in 1875 and has around 6000 students. Since our inception, QMU has made a crucial and distinctive contribution to education by focussing our expertise on issues of pressing social need and by engaging directly with the community.


Courses at QMU cover many specialisations within health care, business and management, social sciences, drama and theatre arts, reflecting the vocational and professional emphasis of the institution. Our small size means that we can offer a friendly and supportive environment for our students.


In 2007, QMU relocated to a new university campus on the southeast side of Edinburgh, with excellent transport links to the city centre. In addition to the main teaching facilities, the campus also includes 800 en-suite student residences, a students' union building and excellent indoor and outdoor sport facilities. With over 800 computer terminals for students to use, a learning resource centre combining IT and library services, and a range of innovative learning, teaching and social spaces, the vibrant campus takes full account of the needs of every student.
