Students from the University of Stirling’s accountancy, business and computing science courses delivered in partnership with Muscat College in Oman celebrated their graduation at a special ceremony this week.
Degrees were conferred upon more than 50 graduates and students who had completed Scottish Qualification Authority-affiliated HNC and HND programmes also collected their awards.
Dean of Stirling Management School, Sharon Bolton travelled to Oman with Alan Simpson to celebrate the students’ achievements.
Sharon Bolton, Dean of Stirling Management School, said: “The University of Stirling and Muscat College takes great pride in our students, and collectively we work to ensure each and every student gains skills that mean they go out into the world as reflective practitioners. Students’ achievement is our achievement too, and we take great joy in that.”
Plans are now underway to extend the successful partnership with Muscat College and introduce new undergraduate degrees in Human Resource Management and Marketing starting in September 2017.
Stirling graduates’ prospects are bolstered by the University’s excellent job credentials. Ranked as the first University in Scotland and third in the UK for employability, 97 percent of Stirling graduates are in employment or further study within six months of completing their degrees.
