Gregor Hank, Visiting Student 1995
As a postgraduate of English Studies, History and Scottish Studies (Year of Graduation 2001 at the University of Bonn, Germany) I have profitted very much from my experiences at Stirling both academically and socially. I returned to Germany after that to complete my first degree of a state examination to become a secondary grammar school teacher at the University of Bonn, Germany in 1998. I am now an established graduate secondary-school teacher (Studienrat) in English and History at a German grammar school. Besides, I have completed my postgraduate studies in English and American literature as well as History of 19th and 20th century Britain and the U.S. by gaining a Master of Arts (M.A.) at the University of Bonn, Germany in 2001.
Stan Shires, BA Marketing 1994
I am now Owner Experience Manager for the Overseas Division of Jaguar Land Rover, which covers markets as diverse as Brazil, South Africa, Russia, Japan, Korea, Singapore, the Middle East and Australia. On a personal note, I have passed my flight training qualification so I can now fly four-seat, single-engined planes. I was examined by a Squadron Leader at RAF Brize Norton which was quite an experience and have now bought a share in a plane, which I fly out of Gloucester Airport.
