Administrative history

Craigie College of Education was opened in 1964 to train primary school teachers, mainly for the south west of Scotland. It was established in response to increasing primary school rolls and a shortage of primary school teachers.

The College developed close links with the University of Strathclyde, with the College's degrees and certificates being validated and awarded by the University.

In 1993, the College merged with the University of Paisley.
