Our 22 schools fall into three colleges: Humanities and Social Science, Medicine and Veterinary Medicine, and Science and Engineering.
Our global reputation for teaching and research make us a first-choice destination for humanities and social science study.
The College is home to leading researchers across the full spectrum of disciplines.
The majority of these academics operate in areas which received the highest grades in the 2008 UK Research Assessment Exercise (RAE).
Our degree programmes are designed to be flexible and responsive to the needs of students and employers.
The College has an extremely high level of research activity and is one of the UK’s largest recipients of ESRC, AHRB and other Research Council funding.

Clinical Medicine was rated top of 28 UK submissions, while Veterinary Medicine was placed first among the seven UK clinical veterinary schools.
Our academic teaching staff generate more than £50 million a year in research funding.
The College of Science and Engineering is one of the largest and most highly rated science and engineering institutions in the UK.
The College produced 42 per cent of Scotland’s science and engineering research rated as world-leading in the 2008 Research Assessment Exercise.
Our large and diverse research base provides outstanding opportunities for students to further their knowledge.
One of the core objectives of the College is to encourage interdisciplinary research and learning, and we have close relations with research organisations including:
