The University of Stirling is located in central Scotland, with over 120 different nationalities represented amongst its 14,000 students. Stirling was founded in 1967 and its campus is set in an 18th century castle estate on the shores of a loch, surrounded by beautiful hills.

More than 95% of all undergraduates were in employment or further study fifteen months after graduation (Graduate Outcomes Survey 2020, HESA) and it was Stirling students who named the University first in Scotland for having good teachers, quality lecturers and performance feedback (International Student Barometer 2016).Work placement opportunities are also encouraged. These include ‘Making the most of your Masters’ and a university initiative with Edinburgh and Aberdeen aimed at building links between universities and employers.
