  • 1966 - A year of Change

    The University was founded in Paisley in 1897, playing an important role in the social and cultural life of the town. From 1903 the institution has provided courses for external degrees of the University of London, but in 1966 the then Paisley College of Technology, began to offer its own degrees under the auspices of the Council for National Academic Awards (CNAA). View the film below commissioned to mark this 50 year milestone.
