Flying Start Leadership Programme

During the first five days of the semester, you'll take part in a wide range of activities, workshops and events which will ensure that your time at Stirling takes off with a Flying Start.

Students who participated in the programme previously felt ready to embark upon their Masters course invigorated, prepared and committed to the learning journey ahead with newly developed skills. Here are just a few of the comments received from participants:

"The Flying Start Leadership Programme is valuable, integrating and orientating students, giving them an opportunity to find their feet."

"Soft skills are as important as 'hard skills', but often not valued enough. Hence, I was grateful for the opportunity to improve myself and to learn new useful things."

Participation in programme is compulsory and will be monitored throughout the duration of the programme. Upon satisfactory completion, you'll be awarded the Flying Start Leadership Programme Certificate of Participation.
