At the University of Stirling, being the difference is in our DNA – providing education with a purpose and carrying out research that helps to shape society. We are an international university with pioneering spirit and a global reputation for high-quality teaching and research. We are passionate about creating impact in everything we do. Stirling is a place where ability – not background – is valued.
We aim to be recognised across the world as a University that addresses the needs of society through innovative and interdisciplinary research, learning and teaching of the highest quality, and by sharing our knowledge with the world. The core strength of the University of Stirling is our people. To build on our success, we invest in the best staff from around the world to deliver on our ambitious strategies for research, teaching and our international partnerships.
The University of Stirling is organised for learning, teaching and research into five faculties, each of which comprises multiple departments, institutes and centres. There are also a number of professional services directorates within the University.
Our history begins with a visionary who recognised that society was being transformed and it needed people skilled in navigating change.
Lord Robbins, our first Chancellor, was an economist who changed the face of British higher education. He understood the importance of a skilled workforce to the future wealth and wellbeing of society. For Robbins it was all about ‘education with a purpose’ and his Robbins principle declared that university places 'should be available to all who were qualified for them by ability and attainment'. The Robbins Report widened access to higher education, and since then the University of Stirling has been delivering the progressive vision and transformative thinking he first articulated in the 1960s.
On 18 September 1967, 164 undergraduate students and 31 postgraduates began their courses at the new Pathfoot Building. Since then we’ve grown to over 14,000 students from over 120 nationalities and we have over 88,000 alumni in 170 countries.
We’re distinct for the way we built our teaching on flexibility, choice and innovation. Our key research innovates in the fields of:
The University is now organised into five faculties:
In addition the Stirling Graduate School supports our thriving postgraduate community. We also have a number of internationally respected institutes and centres covering a broad range of subjects. We have degree course partnerships in China with Hebei Normal University, in Singapore with Singapore Institute of Management, and with Muscat College in Oman.
Our campus is located on the edge of the bustling city of Stirling, close to Glasgow and Edinburgh. We’re situated on the site of the historic Airthrey estate which includes the Robert Adam-designed 18th century Airthrey Castle. In 2016 our campus was rated first in the UK by International Student Barometer.
In 2002, the University of Stirling and the landscape of the Airthrey Estate was designated by the International Council on Monuments and Sites as one of the UK's top 20 heritage sites of the 20th century.
Universities in the United Kingdom use a centralized system of undergraduate application: University and College Admissions Service (UCAS). It is used by both domestic and international students. Students have to register on the UCAS website before applying to the university. They will find all the necessary information about the application process on this website. Some graduate courses also require registration on this website, but in most cases students have to apply directly to the university. Some universities also accept undergraduate application through Common App (the information about it could be found on universities' websites).
Both undergraduate and graduate students may receive three types of responses from the university. The first one, “unconditional offer” means that you already reached all requirements and may be admitted to the university. The second one, “conditional offer” makes your admission possible if you fulfill some criteria – for example, have good grades on final exams. The third one, “unsuccessful application” means that you, unfortunately, could not be admitted to the university of you choice.
All universities require personal statement, which should include the reasons to study in the UK and the information about personal and professional goals of the student and a transcript, which includes grades received in high school or in the previous university.
Our inclusive, multi-cultural environment offers you a welcoming and supportive space for you to learn. Join the University of Stirling and we’ll prepare you for a lifetime of achievement at one of the top 150 most international universities in the world (Times Higher Education World University Rankings 2016).
