In celebrating our past, we aim to safeguard our future; marking the University’s 600th anniversary with a £100 million fundraising campaign.
Our modest, some would say miniscule, endowment of £35 million is dwarfed by those of our wealthier competitors. While we are good at attracting research funding in a fierce marketplace, we lack the means to provide the one thing we value most – opportunity for talented students irrespective of means.
With £100 million we can turn the brightest students into the leaders of tomorrow; people who have been educated to think critically, to act ethically, and who will make the great discoveries that shape the world.

Taking Scotland to the world
