We have 2 of our residences blocks in middle of our campus as well, which means that in the evening campus has a village/community feel. Many locals ‘cut through’ our campus and walk their dogs. We are very much a campus with strong community links. This year for the 6th year in a row we were voted No.1 in Scotland and No. 4 in UK in Times Educational Supplement for student Experience. We have a strong Life Sciences base - being No.1 in UK, a medical school & hospital, a dental school & hospital and an Art College, to name but a few of our focus areas.
