The campus-based University of Stirling was founded by Royal Charter in 1967 on the historic Airthrey Estate, close to Bridge of Allan and two miles from the Royal Burgh of Stirling. The University’s location and history make Stirling that bit different from other UK universities. Since 1967 we have grown considerably and we now also have Highland and Western Isles Campuses.
Stirling is ranked 7th in the UK for graduate employability with 96% of our graduates in employment, or further study, within six months of graduating. (Telegraph/HESA, 2015)
Additionally, the University has achieved a 5 star excellence award for Employability. (QS Stars, 2014)
