After you leave

Many congratulations on completing your studies at the University of Stirling. 

Now that you've graduated you automatically become a lifelong member of the University of Stirling alumni community made up of graduates and former students from all over the world.  

Before you leave the University, please take a moment to check that your personal contact details are up to date and consider any information you may need to retrieve from your IT account. We would also encourage you to take a look at how the University can help you after graduation, via the Careers Service and Alumni team

Things to do before you graduate

At the end of your studies, your access to the University network and services will cease. There are, however, some services that we can offer you beyond graduation but due to GDPR legislation, you will have to give us your consent to continue using them.

See the five actions we recommend you take before graduation

Careers and employability support 

As a Stirling graduate you have life-long support from the Careers Service. From refining your CV, to interview practice and much more, our Careers Consultants are here for you no matter what stage of your professional journey you’re at. See the Careers support for graduates.

The Careers Support for Graduates Canvas site is a great source of information for all careers-related topics. This resource is available to all graduates and provides information on finding opportunities, creating applications, further study, going abroad, and more. 

A Learning Pathway is a series of short activities to develop a particular skill. They work in conjunction with the material available in Careers Support for Graduates on Canvas. From exploring your career options, to writing a CV, to preparing for an interview, see our range of pathways that can quickly help you develop that important skill that will help you succeed in your career journey. See what pathways are available on TARGETconnect in the Pathways section

Graduate Outcomes 

It's important for us to know the career destinations of our graduates. A new national survey was launched in December 2018 to gather a range of information about the activities and perspectives of graduates. About 15 months after graduation, you’ll be contacted to complete the Graduate Outcomes Survey. This is a national survey capturing information about what you’ve done since university, and your insights will help current and future Stirling students to make informed choices about their futures. Your responses will also help us to evaluate and promote our courses. We’ll send you the survey via email, or you may be contacted by phone.  

To support the survey, we are required to hold accurate contact details for you. Just before finishing your course, you will have been prompted to review and update your contact details. You can update your contact details any time after graduation with the Alumni team, for example, if you move. Go to the Contact Details form.


As soon as you graduate from the University of Stirling, you automatically become a lifetime member of our alumni community and qualify for a range of great benefits, including special events and reunions, discounted gym membership, online discounts and more. See all our Alumni benefits.

Stay in touch with Stirling by keeping your contact details up to date – update your details and specify your contact preferences using our contact form.
