Studying at Queen Margaret University, Edinburgh

At QMU, we offer a wide range of undergraduate and postgraduate courses in the specialist areas of healthcare; drama and the creative industries; media, communication and sociology; and business, management and enterprise. From 2019, we will also offer courses in primary education and home economics teaching. We also have a number of postgraduate research courses and continuing professional development (CPD) courses which will be of interest to anyone who is wishing to update their current professional skills.

Located only six minutes from Edinburgh, Scotland's capital city, our vibrant campus offers a friendly and supportive community environment.

Whether you are considering undergraduate, postgraduate or CPD study, we recognise that becoming a student is a big step. There are a number of factors that you’ll need to consider in advance.  We are here to help and offer advice on a range of matters that may affect you, as set out below.

Why QMU?

Great reasons for studying with us – from our friendly and supportive staff to our excellent graduate employment statistics, with our purpose-built campus just six minutes’ by train from Edinburgh city centre.


Short courses plus options to study single modules from our degree courses.

International Students

For advice on qualifications needed, applying, language support and costs of living; and generally how to make moving and studying in a new country a stress-free experience.

If you have any queries about entry requirements, UCAS (for undergraduate applicants), or just general questions about coming to university, our Student Recruitment Team can help, advising you through all the stages of the application process. If you live outside the UK, our International team is your first point of contact at QMU. We also recognise that not every one leaves school and goes immediately to university: you may have spent a few years working, may be at college, or may be returning to education after having a family.

We can provide information, advice and guidance on making this transition to university: you may have concerns about child care as you study, you may be scared about essay writing – whatever it is, we can help. Support for mature students is provided by the Student Services team, who can also give advice on disability, finance, student mentors and counselling, to name but a few. If you would like to live on campus whilst studying at QMU, visit our accommodation section, which has details of prices and photos of our facilities.
