Undergraduate welcome

As an undergraduate student in the Stirling Management School you'll receive a first class education and an unforgettable student experience.

We pride ourselves on being a student-focused institution. We have School Officers representing our students and ensuring that the student voice is heard. School Officers also work closely with module reps in raising any educational concerns, and acting on behalf of the students to ensure that the University is continuously striving towards enhancing all aspects of education and engagement between staff and students.

Our courses are designed to give you the knowledge to meet the rigorous demands of industry. The excellent support and opportunities available through the Careers and Employability Service means that when you graduate you are highly employable and have the skills necessary to progress your career.

More than 97% of the University of Stirling's undergraduate leavers are in employment or further study within six months of graduating (Destinations of Leavers from Higher Education survey 2016/17)

If you are studying a joint degree then please attend induction events for both subject areas to ensure that you are fully briefed of what lies ahead.
