Per Boland
20 October 2017

Students received a visit from a prominent alumnus when Sweden’s Deputy Finance Minister, Per Bolund, returned to the Stirling campus.

Mr Bolund was an Erasmus student at the University during the mid-1990s and returned to speak to current international students about political issues, including Brexit, which might affect them.

During his visit, the University's Director for Advancement, Kerry Bryson, presented him with a commemorative badge celebrating Stirling's 50th anniversary.

Per Bolund was first elected to the Swedish Riksdag in 2006, representing the Green Party. He is also the country’s Minister for Financial Markets and Consumer Affairs.

While in Scotland, he also attended the Scottish Green Party conference in Edinburgh, and the Scottish Government’s Inclusive Growth Conference in Glasgow.
