Donate to QMU
The founding of the Edinburgh School of Cookery on 9th
November 1875 was such a fascinating and remarkable achievement that it has been
celebrated throughout the history of QMU and all its predecessor institutions.
Whether the event was commemorated in 1925, 1975 or 2000, there have
always been contemporary social problems to address and the original
motivation of the two founders, Christian Guthrie Wright and Louisa
Stevenson, has been recognised as being as relevant and necessary
today as it was in 1875. These two women are remembered with great
respect and pride and their sense of moral and social benevolence
still lies behind the strategic direction of the university to this
day; socially relevant education to improve people’s lives.
Funding for Higher Education institutions is at a critical level and
universities are looking to make savings across the board in
resources, staffing etc. but the one area that must remain a
priority is the experience of the students themselves.
Many of the students at QMU make huge personal and financial
sacrifices to complete their studies and gain a degree. Every effort is made to ensure these cut backs do not
impact on the students’ academic and personal experiences and that
the quality of the students’ learning, personal development
opportunities, activities and support are the very best possible.
The university is unable to financially support all areas of student
activity, for example attendance at professional conferences,
student exchanges, sport, so we are asking for help.
