Queen Margaret University History:

Queen Margaret has a proud history of achievement and progress extending for over a century. Founded in 1875, the institution has always been driven by the highest ideals and purposes, focusing on contributing in practical ways to improving the quality of human life and serving the community. Its staff are dedicated to delivering vocational and professional learning and specialising in research which is of value to the community and enhances people’s lives.

In January 2007, Queen Margaret was granted full university title, resulting in a change of name from ‘Queen Margaret University College’ to ‘Queen Margaret University’ and confirming the institution’s long established position as a university level institution.

The forerunner to the college was The Edinburgh School of Cookery which emerged in a period that was notable for real economic progress, but also characterised by many social and economic divisions and inequalities and widespread poverty. This was established as a voluntary effort to address some of the key problems.

Mission Statement

To enhance the quality of life and serve communities, through excellence and leadership in vocationally and professionally relevant education, research and consultancy, as a university which is outward looking and committed to innovation, participation and lifelong learning.
