About the University of Stirling and Scholarship
Stirling stands as a trailblazer in Scottish higher education, being the first new university established in the country in nearly 400 years. The university’s original campus site was chosen from a competitive shortlist, which included locations such as Falkirk, Perth, and Inverness. Lord Robbins, the architect of the Robbins Review recommending the expansion of universities in the UK during the 1960s, became the inaugural chancellor in 1968. A notable addition to the campus was the completion of a house for the university principal, Tom Cottrell, in 1967, designed by architects Morris and Steedman and later listed as category A in 2009.
The Stirling campus is nestled within 330 acres of scenic grounds beneath the Ochil Hills, located 2 miles from the center of Stirling and close to the town of Bridge of Allan. Widely recognized as one of the most beautiful campuses globally, it earned the top spot in the UK for its campus environment in the International Student Barometer 2016. The campus is situated on the historic Airthrey estate, featuring the 18th-century Airthrey Castle designed by Robert Adam, along with the Hermitage Woods, Airthrey Loch, and Airthrey Golf Course. The Andrew Miller Building, a central hub on campus, houses retail and food outlets, including a bookstore, bank, and general store, linking various university facilities and student accommodations.
Stirling has earned a reputation as a mid-ranked, pre-1992 UK university known for its high-quality teaching and socially relevant research. It ranks among the top 50 universities globally under 50 years old, securing the 2nd position in the UK and 46th globally in the Times Higher Education World University Rankings. According to the Complete University Guide, it is also among the top 40 universities in the UK.
The university takes pride in its commitment to graduate employability, ranking 1st in Scotland and 3rd in the UK according to the Higher Education Statistics Agency. More than 96% of graduates find employment or pursue further studies within six months of graduating.
