University of Stirling: One of the best Universities in the UK
5 October 2016
The essence of the University of Stirling is its great people: the graduates, staff and students who are helping to shape the world.
The 2017 Times Higher Education Guide ranked the University 38th of 128 institutions, and number one in Scotland. The results of its subject ranking saw programmes in criminology (1st in Scotland, 5th in UK), education (2nd in Scotland, 5th in UK) and communications and media (1st in Scotland, top 15 in UK) all impress.
Stirling is the number one Scottish university for graduate employability, and third in the UK, with 97 percent of graduates in employment or further study within six months of graduating.
Away from Academia
The University has also won awards for its Good environment on campus (1st in Scotland, 3rd in UK) and its high quality sports facilities. Swimmers from the University also won three silver medals at the recent Rio Olympics!
Stirling’s Investment Analyst MSc covers 70% of the Chartered Financial Analyst curriculum, and a team of four students on the programme recently won the Global Investment Banking Valuation Olympiad. Dr. Kevin Campbell, who leads the one year Investment Analyst MSc, said: “Our students thoroughly deserve their victory, won in the face of stiff competition. Their achievement is a richly deserved recognition not only of their knowledge of company valuation but of their ability to be creative and to present their ideas in a convincing manner. It is also a reflection of the skills they have developed during their time studying in Stirling Management School and of the quality of support we provide.”
