Queen Margaret University, Edinburgh was established in 1875 and throughout all of its campuses has around 6000 students. Since our inception, QMU has made a crucial and distinctive contribution to education by focusing our expertise on issues of pressing social need and by engaging directly with the community.
Being a small university means that we can offer a friendly and supportive environment for our students, a point that is particularly appreciated by our international community, who make up around 25 per cent of the total student body (including collaborative partnerships).
Courses at QMU are developed to prepare students for fulfilling careers: 92.8% per cent of our graduates find employment or go on to further training within 6 months of graduating.
Many of our students and alumni have gone on to acclaim on the international stage. From winning the Ramon Magsaysay Award (Asia's equivalent to the Nobel Peace Prize) to presenting MTV, or being the first in the family to attend university; we take pride in the achievements of all our graduates.
