Working with students in the Faculty of Natural Sciences

Could your organisation benefit from fresh ideas or solutions based on research and the latest knowledge in natural sciences?

We teach our students to be innovative thinkers and practical achievers. We work with our business partners to ensure our students are active learners; using critical and personal development skills to flourish in the workplace.

Our students can help your business and you can help them by offering opportunities and experience in the workplace.

Student Projects

Our Masters students can give you fresh ideas and science expertise via a free consultancy project that could bring real value to your business. Areas of natural science include sustainable aquaculture, big data, advanced human and animal psychology, environmental management and marine biotechnology.

Consultancy projects usually happen during the summer months and involve a matching process to make sure you’re working with a student with the skills to fit your business.

The Stirling Internship Programme enables you to recruit our students to undertake projects to help take your business forward.

You can advertise full or part-time opportunities for summer vacation periods, or part-time internships students can carry out alongside their studies. We only promote paid internships although a limited number of partial subsidies are available to SMEs, charities and social enterprises.
