My time at Stirling was enjoyable, very worthwhile and I found it to be enriching and challenging, with a real international feel to the campus.
University brought me out of my comfort zone and challenged me both academically and socially.
I’ve forged many deep and meaningful friendships with my classmates
At Stirling we’re a close-knit community. Stirling is a place where everyone is treated with respect and where ability - not background - is valued. We’re proud of the diversity of our students with over 20 percent coming from an international background.
Every student who studies at Stirling for one semester or more is automatically a member of the Stirling Alumni Association. The association has a global network of over 92,000 former Stirling students in 170 countries. This helps our students keep links with the University and each other. Many of our students return to campus after graduation, to either continue with their education, partner with the University through work, or in some cases develop their professional career as an employee of the University.
