The University of Stirling was the first genuinely new University in Scotland for over 400 years when it was founded by Royal Charter in 1967. Stirling has been the number one destination for thousands of international students for many years. By joining Stirling, students will become a vital part of its international and academic community and on graduation they’ll become part of the proud group of Stirling alumni who are leading figures across industry, commerce, academia and education in every corner of the world. With over 100 international research partners, almost three-quarters of its research activity is rated either world-leading or internationally excellent. The university has also been awarded five QS Stars in the World University Rankings for internationalisation.
The University offers a wide range of exciting and business-focused undergraduate degree and postgraduate taught degree programmes. They are recognised as a centre of excellence for research. Students can choose from around 200 high quality degree combinations to create the programme that will suit their strengths and help them achieve their goals. Its Undergraduate and Postgraduate courses are accredited by various external bodies. Each student is assigned an academic member of staff as a Personal Tutor and students will meet with them regularly so that they can offer guidance and support at any point during studies. Also, the university has partnered with a wide range of leading businesses and public service providers to offer students a host of internship and work experience opportunities.
The University is located just two miles from the centre of Stirling. Set in the shadow of the Ochil Hills, the magnificent 330-acre campus encompasses a loch, a golf course and the 18th-century Airthrey Castle. The University has two other campuses in Inverness and Stornoway, centres of excellence in the teaching of nursing and midwifery.
