Yvonne is currently studying MSc Applied Social Research at Stirling.
I have been very fortunate in that I loved my course and it turned out to be everything I hoped for and more, due in part, to the staff of the Faculty of Social Sciences. The Faculty has a number of teaching staff who are at the forefront of research in their respective fields and who offer a wide range of expertise; they are helpful, approachable and enthusiastic about each student’s learning and I always found it easy to find support.
As a mature student beginning university I was nervous about beginning my course. I needn’t have worried at all as I have made some great new friends. The mix of mature and younger students together with the many international students at Stirling engenders a real sense of community on campus.
When I graduated from Stirling I felt a huge sense of achievement, I had a First Class Honours degree and as an added bonus have made lifelong friends.
