We have also been recognised as Scottish University of the Year 2020 by the Sunday Times Good University Guide, and were awarded the Queen’s Anniversary Prize, the highest national honour awarded to our sector.

We are a QS five-star rated university. In all the areas of assessment – teaching, employability, research, internationalisation, facilities, innovation, inclusiveness, and specialist – we scored highly, achieving five stars in each.
