In this opening video Professor Vel McCune talks with Professor Peter Mathieson, Principal and Vice-Chancellor, and Professor Colm Harmon, Vice-Principal Students, about the challenges facing Higher Education. Our students no longer have certainty about their future and the paths their career will follow. As a result we need to develop our thinking on how we equip our students to excel and adapt in an ever changing world. This requires institutions like ours to focus on skills more than they ever have in the past. But how do we do this in an already packed curricula? What do we want our students to be and what skills do they need to achieve this? What does the Edinburgh Graduate look like? By choosing Edinburgh our students will do well but we want our students to achieve to their fullest potential and make the world a better place. As part of Strategy 2030, Curriculum Transformation will focus on how we can do the best we can, to enable our students to be the best they can
