George's Story

Originally graduating in Zoology at another university, George wanted to improve his knowledge of the field of investments and was attracted to studying at Stirling. He chose the University because of the course’s reputation, its Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA) accreditation, and the beautiful campus.

While studying at Stirling, George was also an active member of the University’s Student Managed Investment Fund (SMIF). The SMIF provides students with the opportunity to enhance their knowledge of investments and portfolio management.

George said: “My year studying at Stirling was a great experience and provided me with the opportunity to meet people I would not otherwise have met. The teachers were also always willing to take the time to explain and discuss challenging concepts.

“This gave me a deeper understanding of the subject area and allowed me to hear and learn from a variety of different viewpoints and approaches.

“My time at Stirling was challenging, rewarding, and informative – and I’m looking forward to taking my first steps into the investment sector now.”
