Our Vision

To recruit and develop the world's most promising students and most outstanding staff and be a truly global university benefiting society as a whole.

Our Mission

As a world-leading centre of academic excellence we aim to:

•Enhance our position as one of the world’s leading research and teaching universities and to measure our performance against the highest international standards.

•Provide the highest quality learning and teaching environment for the greater wellbeing of our students.

•Produce graduates fully equipped to achieve the highest personal and professional standards.

•Make a significant, sustainable and socially responsible contribution to Scotland, the UK and the world, promoting health and economic and cultural wellbeing.

We aspire to be a place of first choice for some of the world’s most talented students and staff and central to this ambition is that everyone has the opportunity to participate in and contribute to our community.

In addition to Disabled-Go, the University of Edinburgh provides a range of support for students with access and participation requirements through the Student Disability Service. This service supports students to enable them to participate in both their studies and wider university and community life. Staff are also supported through the Disabled Staff Network which meets regularly to identify and improve the working experience at the University.
