You are cordially invited to support QMU students through donating to the Trees of Life Fund. You may contribute to a Graduate Tree that will honour all of the students graduating this year or donate an individual tree in honour or in memory of someone (a parent, a friend, a teacher, etc).

"Our students are the professionals and practitioners of tomorrow. A fund such as the 'Trees of Life' is so apt as it symbolises the gradual and quiet growth of perseverance, through all weathers. I hope that the funds from this venture can help in some way towards the nurturing of new talent and creativity."

James Robertson,

Trees of Life Donor and Former Programme Leader, MSc Music Therapy

Dobbies Garden World Melville has provided 150 trees to commemorate the 150th anniversary of QMU in 2025. You may make a contribution and name a tree in honour or memory of an individual as well as to celebrate your graduation!

Each tree sponsorship includes a plaque listing the name of the person you wish to honour or year for donations received from students graduating each year. All funds will be distributed by the QMU Student Union to directly benefit QMU students.
