Creating opportunities

We prepare you for life after graduation, whether that be through studying abroad, improving your leadership skills, or taking part in a student consultancy project. If you have a passion to succeed in business, we’ll help you realise your ambitions from the moment you arrive at Stirling.

Career focused

Through our excellent links with industry, you’ll be able to take advantage of company-based projects, internships and networking opportunities. You’ll gain real insights from industry leaders, with a wide range of visiting speakers. You can advance your practical management skills by applying for an internship or get involved with one of the business-related university clubs, where you can network with like-minded individuals and the local business community. We have the opportunities to help you pursue your career while you’re still at university; however, you’ll need to drive to make them happen and get the most out of your experience.

Our Careers Service is able to support you to be the difference at every stage of your journey.
