The University of Stirling has received an education award recognising the institution’s growing popularity in China.

In the sub-category of “Best Campus and Facilities”, the University has won "The 2019 Tencent Echo China Award for Favoured UK University Among Chinese Families".

At the annual award ceremony in Beijing on 16 November, judges praised Stirling’s “beautiful campus and cutting-edge facilities”.

Professor Gerry McCormac, the University’s Principal and Vice-Chancellor, said: “It’s really pleasing to see our world-class campus environment and facilities – which were also awarded five stars in the QS Stars University Ratings 2021 – further recognised by an international panel in this way. We’re very proud of our links with Chinese institutions, and of our community of students from China who choose to make our welcoming campus their home during their studies.”

Tencent is the largest social media company in China. The awards are judged by educational experts and media, and by surveying Chinese families through internet and social media platforms.

Stirling has a long history of welcoming Chinese students, and a proven track record of supporting them to achieve their academic and professional career goals.

Empowered by the Stirling experience, the University’s Chinese graduates have become global citizens, successfully forging careers in a variety of fields around the world.
