When Jenny left her small rural school in Caithness she wasn’t sure if she wanted to go to university. She was drawn to Stirling because of the course flexibility and the stunning campus and is happy she made the decision to come here.
“The experiences and knowledge I have gained over the last four years have been amazing,” she said.
“The academic staff and the teaching at Stirling are second to none. Staff are supportive and encouraging and give you an environment to flourish in.”
She joined the First Aid Africa society in her first semester and spent a summer teaching first aid in Tanzania, before becoming president of the society.
In her last two years, she was a faculty officer for the Marketing and Retail Division and was part of the first Careers Crew internship programme.
In addition, she completed an internship with Stirling Council’s HR department and continued to work there part-time for almost three years.
In her third year she got a place as a Saltire Scholar and did a 10-week internship in New York.
“This was an amazing opportunity to live abroad and work with a company at an exciting growth period,” she said.
Following her graduation, she is going travelling with her boyfriend and applying for graduate jobs.
She describes her time at Stirling as “exciting, rewarding and an adventure”.
