Our focus is to improve the health or illness experience and benefit individuals, carers and communities. We make an impact through research, education and practice and inform policy at national and international level.
Students are encouraged to become independent, confident learners and our skilled graduates are capable of joining responsive clinical teams. Stirling was the only Scottish HEI classed as outstanding in the 2010-11 NMC/Mott Macdonald review for its undergraduate course.
We value lifelong learning and education, research-led teaching and an excellent student experience.
Stirling is home to the School's largest campus. Its staff are mainly housed in the purpose-built R G Bomont Building. The NMAHP Research Unit is housed in the adjacent Iris Murdoch Building.
Stirling University's Highland Campus provides adult nursing and mental health nursing degrees for those starting their careers. Many of our students come direct from school or college; others choose to start this profession later in life, as a second career or often after raising a family.
It also offers a portfolio of CPD opportunities for healthcare professionals across the Highlands and Islands. These courses include Masters, Doctorates and PhD programmes. The use of innovative methods of online learning enables students to benefit from expertise of staff on other campuses.
Highland Campus is also home to an increasing number of health and healthcare researchers who contribute to the School's world-class research work.
The School values input to its core activities from Service Users, their families and friends.
