The University of Warwick was given approval by the government in 1961 and received its Royal Charter of Incorporation in 1965. It is situated on a large 700 acre campus which straddles the boundary between the City of Coventry and the County of Warwickshire.

Since then, the University has incorporated the former Coventry College of Education in 1978 and has extended its land holdings by the purchase of adjoining farm land.

The University of Dundee became an independent university in 1967 after a 70 years relationship with the University of St Andrews – now a key partner. The Sunday Times University Guide named the University of Dundee Scottish University of the Year 2004.
Dundee is growing fast in both size and reputation. Broadly-based, it has performed extremely well in both teaching and research assessment exercises, has spawned a range of spin-out companies to exploit its research and has a model wider-access programme. Distance learning – especially in medical related areas – is burgeoning right across the world and now accounts for one in six students. An ambitious project to explore the creation of an international virtual medical school involving all five Scottish medical schools is led by Dundee.
Dundee received the prestigious Queen’s Anniversary Prize for higher education institutions in 1998, has three of the 20 most cited scientists in the UK – the only Scottish university included – and three “biomedical” knights.
