Founding Member: Queen Margaret University (UK)

Queen Margaret University in Edinburgh, Scotland is one of the 26 Founding Members of the MSM Higher Ed Pathways initiative.

Established in 1875, Queen Margaret University, Edinburgh (QMU) is an institution looking to shape a better world through education, research and innovation. The university is named after Saint Margaret, wife of King Malcolm III of Scotland, and is located in Musselburgh, Scotland—benefitting from easy access to the centre of Edinburgh, Scotland’s vibrant and historic capital city.

Through its person-centred approach, Queen Margaret University dedicates itself in the subjects of healthcare, social sciences, creative arts, business, management and enterprise, and primary and secondary teaching. The university offers a range of over a hundred courses—undergraduate, postgraduate or continued professional development—specially designed for career-driven students. These are delivered through the following schools and divisions: The School of Arts, Social Sciences and Management (Divisions: Queen Margaret Business School; Media, Communications and Performing Arts; Psychology, Sociology and Education) and The School of Health Sciences (Divisions: Dietetics, Nutrition & Biological Sciences, Physiotherapy; Podiatry & Radiography; Nursing; Occupational Therapy and Arts Therapies; Speech and Hearing Sciences; The Institute for Global Health and Development). There is also its Advancing Practice Academy (Health Sciences) and Graduate School.
With its strong ethos of partnership and collaboration, the institution prides itself as a pioneer in inclusiveness as the institution embraces people from all backgrounds. It adheres to Equality Act 2010 and the University Court ensures that Queen Margaret University meets its public sector equality duty and the specific duties relevant to the country. The university also maintains close ties to the local community and gives back through its local community facilities like its clinics, library, Business Gateway Service, and food catering and retail outlets. Through an articulation agreement with MSM Higher Ed, Queen Margaret University is now part of its global consortium as an MSM Higher Ed Pathways Founding Member. MSM Higher Ed Pathways is designed to prepare students for entry or advanced standing at multiple universities in study destinations for international education. Students who have started their programs through MSM Higher Ed Pathways delivery centres (Foundation Schools) close to their homes may choose to proceed to complete their degree at Queen Margaret University in Scotland.
