Situated on one of the most beautiful campuses in the UK, the university provides facilities that will have a real influence on your capacity to teach.

Our teaching staff have an outstanding reputation for quality and academic research and our track record in graduate employment is the best in Scotland. Our range of degree courses include online degrees as well as traditional taught courses in subjects as diverse as art and design, management and engineering.

Our vision is to be known regionally, nationally and internationally for world class research in our priority themes, Oil and Gas, Remote Health, Smart Data, Culture and Design.

And so our mission is to prioritise and create critical mass in these themes; to ensure that the university’s research is translational and has a clear impact in areas of economic, social or cultural need; to have research-informed teaching across the university; and to ensure that our research maximises opportunities for income or creates value in intellectual property.
