Celebrating Burns

Issued: Mon, 25 Jan 2016 11:58:00 GMT

This year, we are celebrating the life and work of Scotland's most famous poet in a host of ways.

On Burns Night (25 Jan) the 'Robert Burns: Poems, Songs and Legacy' MOOC was launched. This is a free online course exploring the life and works of the Scottish bard.

Burns' work was also discussed alongside that of William Shakespeare when leading academics gathered in Burns' birthplace to compare and contrast the two literary greats on 16 January. 

In addition, staff and students, including University Principal and Vice-Chancellor Anton Muscatelli, chose to honour Burns with a special rendition of his most famous poem 'Auld Lang Syne.'
