For those with an interest in Arts and Humanities the University of Stirling is a great place to be. Our staff and students are drawn from all over the globe and come together to experience a friendly but challenging intellectual environment. We teach and research in a wide range of disciplines and are committed to multi and inter-disciplinary study. We have a strong postgraduate community and our undergraduate programmes facilitate progression to postgraduate study. The School of Arts and Humanities is very much a happening place where we regularly stage all manner of exhibitions, events and conferences. The culture is rich and vibrant. We believe that University life is about much more than the passing of exams and encourage staff and students to participate in all aspects of University life. We have strong links to the local community and see ourselves as an active player in that community.
Statements make me anxious. They're such hostages to fortune: too hard and fast, too fundamentalist. My poetry would be a dead thing if it couldn't retain its liquidity, couldn't change shape or direction.
You will benefit from being taught by highly experienced and approachable academic staff, in a friendly and modern environment.
