Dr Sjoerd Gehrels

Doctorate in Education (EdD)

I chose the University of Stirling knowing Scotland and Scottish higher education to be strong in the connection between academic research and professional practice which was important for me.  My thesis supervisor, professors and other faculty, management and support staff including the librarians were all very helpful and pleasant to deal with while maintaining high standards. Coming to the campus between 1 to 5 times a year in the past 7 years has always been a tremendous experience for me as an international student travelling from the Netherlands.  The vast amount of knowledge in research acquired throughout the programme was extremely useful for my practice of being a lecturer and course leader in higher education in The Netherlands.
