Come and find out what’s new and exciting at QMU this summer

All QMU’s Norwegian alumni are invited to attend Connect 2013, a graduate reunion with a difference on Saturday, June 8, 2013.

This exciting event will offer you the opportunity to renew old friendships, make new friends and find out more about ground-breaking research currently being conducted at the University. If you haven’t already visited our new purpose-built facilities just outside Edinburgh, why not come and see them for yourself.

The event will be a fun day with a demonstration by Neil Forbes, Chef director of Café St. Honoré, and Scottish Chef of the Year (Scottish Restaurant Awards 2011), involving some delicious ideas on how to make the most of Scotland’s larder of great natural produce. Tutor-led wine tastings will provide a relaxed back-drop for some serious networking in the afternoon.

Richard Bouglet, director of leading wine merchants, L’Art du Vin, will present two wine tasting sessions: “Do you know your classics ?” (including a fun wine quiz) and “Wines of the season” – including top tips on which wines best complement seasonal foods. Both wine tastings will include cheese tastings with artisan cheese-maker and QMU graduate Jane Stewart of St. Andrews Farmhouse Cheese Company. Numbers for the wine tastings are limited to 30 people per session, so make your group booking as soon as possible !

In the morning, visitors will be able to gain an insight to the innovative and highly-relevant research being carried out at the University in a series of short interactive presentations. They will learn about the pioneering work of QMU’s Clinical Audiology, Speech and Language Research Centre (CASL). Using ultrasound, they will discover different ways of producing speech sounds and how the tongue can be used to make new sounds. Why not come and find out the different ways in which individuals make the distinctive famous Scottish “r” sound !

The CASL team will also showcase EPG, a speech therapy tool which has been developed over a number of years at QMU, and is improving people’s lives. The demonstration will show how EPG is being used in the assessment, diagnosis and treatment of individuals with speech difficulties, previously unresponsive to conventional therapy.

Visitors to Connect 2013 will also learn about QMU researchers’ work in discovering that honey produced in Portobello – just a short distance from our Musselburgh campus - is as effective as the world-famous Manuka honey from New Zealand in killing some strains of bacteria which cause wound infections. They will also learn about research into the previously little-known health-giving potential of sea buckthorn, an East Lothian super fruit which grows wild in Scotland. Researchers at QMU have discovered that sea buckthorn, which produces yellow flower in spring and distinctive orange berries in the autumn, could assist with cardiovascular and gastro-intestinal disorders and in healing psoriasis.

The presentations will also include a preview of a 25-minute show reel by Walid Salhab, an award-winning filmmaker and lecturer in Media Practice, whose time lapse/stop motion film of Edinburgh in winter, “Kinetic Edinburgh II” is on course to reach three million hits! As a prolific maker of short films, Walid’s work is set to dazzle you.

We can assist you in arranging get-togethers, including assisting with room bookings for the day, overnight stays on campus and group bookings. Graduates, mums, dads, big sisters, children, friends are all welcome (but please book in advance). Contact us at E: [email protected]

Why not make your visit to Scotland a little longer and stay in the student residences on campus. You will be able to make the most of events going on in the capital. Trains from the station adjacent to the new campus take around seven minutes direct to Edinburgh Waverly, where you can board a dedicated bus to Edinburgh Airport opposite the station.

Why not visit Edinburgh Castle, the National Museum of Scotland – now one of the UK’s top 10 tourist attractions – the famous Botanic Gardens, or even Edinburgh Zoo. Culture buffs will be able to see Rodin’s The Kiss, at the National Gallery, or visit the Traverse Theatre and see, “Calum’s Road”, based on the true story of Calum MacLeod, who after years of battling against the inaction of the authorities on Raasay decided to build a road himself.


Hello everyone
Please see details of QMU’s up and coming alumni reunion. Please pop the date in your diary. We really do hope you can come along and join in the fun. Please can you pass on the information below to your QMU alumni friends on Facebook and via your own email networks. We are counting on graduates and friends helping us to circulate the Connect 2013 through their own circle of QMU graduate friends. We don’t want anyone to miss out on what promises to be a great event. However, as with any reunion - the more the merrier!
I hope to hear from you all soon. Please note, places for the tutor-led wine tastings are limited, so if you want a place on either session, it’s best to book ASAP.
Kind regards

Connect 2013 – the QMU alumni reunion (8th June)
Tutor-led wine tastings, artisan cheeses, chef demonstrations and cream teas are just some of the offerings at QMU’s alumni reunion.
Come and join us for Connect 2013 – our first major alumni reunion.
Saturday 8th June 2013 is your chance to meet up with old friends, make new ones, find out about what’s happening at QMU and have some fun.
Whether you graduated within the last 5 years or 50 years ago, this event is for everyone who has graduated from QMU and its predecessor institutions. You can even bring your friends and family!
It’s going to be a great day out, so take a look at what’s in store and make sure all your QMU contacts know it’s going to be taking place. It’s a great line-up of fun-filled events so we don’t want anyone to miss out.
So what’s on offer?
Neil Forbes, chef director of Café St Honoré and Scottish Chef of the Year (Scottish Restaurant Awards 2011) will be showing us how to make the most of local, seasonal produce.
Richard Bouglet from l’Art du Vin, will be leading two tutor-led wine tasting sessions followed by some artisan cheese tastings from Jane Stewart, QMU alumni and owner of St Andrews Farmhouse Cheese Company. Places are limited for Richard’s wine-tastings – ‘Do you know your classics?’ and ‘Wines of the Season’. There are only 30 places in each of his two sessions so book now to avoid disappointment E: [email protected] (put ‘Connect Wine Tasting’ in the subject box when enquiring about your wine session booking).
Find out what QMU is great at these days with our fascinating, interactive demonstrations.
Some of our academics and research staff will be showcasing their projects. Find out why QMU’s is buzzing about Portobello honey! Dr Mary Warnock asks if you’re getting enough? – antioxidants, that is! We’re just crazy about the health benefits of East Lothian’s superfruit, Seabuckthorn so we want to share news about our nutritional trials in that area. Our business experts get juicy with microwave technology – yes, our collaborative work with microwave pioneers AMT is set to revolutionise the food processing industry. If the programme, so far, hasn’t set your taste buds tingling, Professor Isobel Davidson might shed light on whether you’re a supertaster or a non-taster – you might get a surprise which one you are.
We all know that good communications is often the key to success. Dr Wood will be doing some ‘sweet talking’ when she showcases some tongue tricks with EPG speech technology. Our other researchers will be getting ‘tongue tied with ultrasound technology’ when they show you what the tongue is doing inside your mouth during speech.
It doesn’t stop there. Our film work is sweeping the boards on the international film festival circuit so we’ll be showing off some of our short films and trailers and telling you about our work in dialogue with local young people. Phew – we have so much to tell you, but come and see for yourself.
No visit to the University would be complete without partaking in a wee QMU scone. We’ll have plenty to share at the morning coffee reception. A delicious brunch will follow and you can catch up with old friends (and new ones, hopefully) while indulging in a cream tea during the afternoon.
If you haven’t had the chance to visit the campus before, we’d be delighted to show you around our impressive modern facilities.
If that sounds like a plan, then please put the word out through your graduate networks, book your place at Connect 2013, pop the date in your diary and start making plans for your visit to QMU. You can even book a room in halls (a change from the old days of Guthrie and Stevenson halls – the rooms are all en-suites so no queuing for the showers!)

Timeline photos 16/11/2012

Did you know that today is Queen Margaret Saint’s Day (16 November 2012)
Queen Margaret University takes its name from Margaret, Queen Consort of King Malcolm Canmore of Scotland, who lived in the 11th century. One of the best known and loved women from Scottish history, Queen Margaret was renowned for her charity, education and piety in her lifetime, and as a result, was canonised as a saint in 1250.
The name Queen Margaret was incorporated into this institution's title in 1972 because she was seen to personify our key values of serving the community, enhancing the quality of life, and taking practical action. These values still hold true today at Queen Margaret with our refreshed vision which centres on the theme of ‘relevance’.
Margaret was known to be a fine scholar with a formidable intellectual capacity, who often debated the affairs of state with the King's noble and clerical advisers. As a deeply religious woman, Queen Margaret was concerned with works of mercy and giving and particularly with the care of the poor. She was known to bathe the feet of beggars; provide practical care for destitute children; and distribute food, clothing and medicine to hungry and poor subjects.
It was in recognition for her work in bringing the church in Scotland into the community of the wider church throughout Europe that she was canonised by Pope Innocent IV.
Like Margaret Canmore, Queen Margaret University seeks to influence, educate and inspire. Just as the Queen’s efforts positively impacted on the Scottish people, Queen Margaret University is working to help Scotland succeed in the 21st century knowledge economy by teaching people to heal, to question, to share knowledge, to perform, to nurture and to manage. Drawing on inspiration from Margaret Canmore and our female founders, we equip our students to contribute in practical ways to improving the quality of human life and serving the community.
