Transformative education on a global scale
Demographics are changing adversely; the world economy remain uncertain; there are tensions in world politics.
The nature of learning changes too with pervasive digital technologies intrinsic to modern life. Recognising the challenges of the changing world must make us even more determined to achieve future goals that we have set for ourselves: we are an international university like no other.
We have already a portfolio of exciting new strategic learning initiatives.
The GRID is our new focal point for Global Research, Innovation and Discovery. It provides an innovative teaching and learning environment designed to remove boundaries between academic disciplines, and deliver new ways to link with industry partners and our global community. The GRID methodology is being embedded in the infrastructure and operations in UAE and in Malaysia.
It will also be a focus for enterprise, nurturing a strong entrepreneurial culture where staff, students and industry partners are encouraged to develop ground-breaking
technologies and solutions, creating entirely new industries and supply chains.
Oriam, Scotland’s National Performance Centre for Sport, is a truly leading facility for student sport, engaging all our Edinburgh communities and in the future enabling new research and teaching in performance, sports digital analytics and medical technologies across all campuses.
Our Learning and Teaching Academy enables fresh approaches to student learning and to the support of our staff. Linking with investments and building on initiatives developed at the Malaysia Campus that highlight the positive impact our students and staff have on society.
The coming years will mark a new era for an invigorated Edinburgh Business School, providing business courses at
all levels from foundation through to executive education
and postdoctoral research. Online teaching and assessment offers us an unrivalled opportunity to build  exible support for our students on campus and for those far away.
