As a student looking for international experience, picking Stirling was the best decision I could have made. It provided a rare blend of an engaging curriculum, personable and approachable staff, and a diverse, spirited student body – all of this, at Europe’s doorstep, the beauty and charm of Central Scotland. In a globalised world it is our ability to transcend international and cultural boundaries that sets us apart.
My course contained a fascinating mixture of students from Europe, North America, Asia and Africa. This exposure to other cultures was both a pleasant surprise, and by far the most rewarding experience I had in Scotland. Stirling has truly unlocked the power of diversity.
Returning home to Canada in a truly difficult job market, this international experience and exposure to diversity was a tremendous differentiator. I was able to quickly find employment in my field of choice as a Commercial Account Manager with the Royal Bank of Canada. I owe this success largely to my experience at Stirling.
