Where academic achievement meets sporting success

Founded by Royal Charter in 1967, the University of Stirling has consistently exhibited a pioneering spirit and passion for excellence that endures today. Thanks to its characteristic devotion to multidisciplinary collaboration, Stirling has cemented its reputation as one of Scotland’s leading research universities. Away from the classroom, however, the institution’s designation as Scotland’s University for Sporting Excellence also bears testament to its tremendous sporting pedigree, with over 50 of its student athletes currently holding world rankings.

Hear from our students

I was influenced by the professional academic environment in Stirling Management School when I made my choice to study this course here. As an international student, I have been enriched by studying in a multi-cultural environment as well as improving my academic knowledge. I particularly enjoyed the Flying Start activities at the beginning of the course and the Personal and Professional Development module has really helped me to build my confidence and improve teamwork skills.
