QMU expands into online course provision

By Press Office

Queen Margaret University, Edinburgh (QMU) is launching a suite of fully online postgraduate courses in partnership with Higher Ed Partners (HEP), a well-established provider with a mission of increasing access to top quality and affordable higher education through online delivery.

Seven new courses feature in the initial launch. Encompassing Education, Healthcare Management, Nursing, Global Health and Public Health, the courses reflect Queen Margaret University’s long-established expertise in these fields.

Professor Richard Butt, Deputy Principal at Queen Margaret University said: “This is an exciting new chapter in QMU’s history as our suite of online courses will allow many more students to access a high-quality Queen Margaret education, wherever they are in the world.”

He continued: ‘We have worked hard to ensure that our new online provision reflects QMU’s values and ethos, particularly our focus on enabling students to thrive and, more broadly, enhancing people’s lives.  Our partner, HEP, shares our values, and with them we will deliver a high-quality online student experience designed to help our students succeed.”

These new online courses are now open for applications, and the first intake of students will start their programmes in March. There are multiple start dates for each course each year.

Details of the courses available can be found on a dedicated microsite.
