Times Higher University of the Year – again!

We’re delighted to have won Times Higher Education University of the Year 2019 – the only university to be awarded the UK-wide award for a second time!

We picked up the top prize at the Times Higher Education Awards 2019, beating off stiff competition from universities around the country. We have also been recognised for Widening Participation or Outreach Initiative of the Year.

Judges praised our commitment to our founding vision of being the place of useful learning, adding that the university “set itself the task of reviving Scotland’s traditional industrial base with a scale of ambition that has multiplied rapidly over the past decade”.

The award honours our success in creating a series of collaborative research centres that share expertise and equipment with industry and developing Scotland’s first innovation district.
