Student placements and projects

Our students are looking for work experience related to their studies throughout the year. By welcoming a Stirling student into your business, you’ll be gaining a valuable asset to help you tackle a specific project or need, as well as building relationships with the next generation of leaders.

What skills can our Environmental Management students offer your business?

Our MSc Environmental Management is recognised as internationally leading in training environmental managers for careers in the public and private sector. Our students have a wide range of skills, including in-depth and structured literature reviews (with access to scientific literature and library services), statistical analysis in the R language, spatial mapping and GIS, policy analysis, stakeholder interviews and online surveys and writing reports.
