Since its founding in 1967 the University of Stirling has been helping its graduates, staff and students to shape the world. 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 92,000 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:Cultures, Communities and SocietyGlobal Security and ResilienceLiving WellIn addition the Institute for Advanced Studies 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 and in Singapore with Singapore Institute of Management. 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.Our visionTo 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.Positioning statement; At the University of Stirling our thinkers are bright, inquisitive and innovative.
