Strategic Plan 2016-2021

The University of Stirling is an international university with a global reputation for high-quality teaching and research. By striving for success, our teaching and research makes a real and demonstrable impact on the economy, environment and society in Scotland and beyond.

We’re ambitious for our students to shape the global communities they will work in. We’re not resting on our current success. We launched the Strategic Plan 2016-2021 with ambitious targets on our research profile and international standing that will lead us to become one of the top 25 universities in the UK.

Our vision is to be recognised across the world as a university that addresses the needs of society through innovative interdisciplinary research, learning and teaching of the highest quality and by sharing our knowledge with the world.

Focusing on innovation and excellence, the strategy sets out our vision, institutional priorities and objectives for the next five years. Staff and students were invited to contribute to and help shape this next important phase in the University’s development.
