Flying Start Leadership Programme

‌During the first two weeks of semester, you will participate 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 last year 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.’ MSc Behavioural Science for Management student

‘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.' MSc Business and Management student 

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