The University of Stirling (Scots: University o Stirlin, Scottish Gaelic: Oilthigh Shruighlea (abbreviated as Stir or Shruiglea, in post-nominals) is a public university in Stirling, Scotland, founded by royal charter in 1967. It is located in the Central Belt of Scotland, built within the walled Airthrey Castle estate.

The university campus is approximately 360 acres (1.5 km2) in size, incorporating the Stirling University Innovation Park and the Dementia Centre. The campus is located in the foothills of the Ochil Hills.[5] 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.[6]

As of 2022, the university has 14,000 part-time and full-time students.[7] Stirling has international degree programme partnerships in China with Hebei Normal University, Singapore with Singapore Institute of Management, and Oman. The university offers a MSc in Human Rights & Diplomacy, which is the only Human Rights and Diplomacy programme in the world taught in partnership with the United Nations Institute for Training and Research.[8]


Stirling was the first new university to be established in Scotland for nearly 400 years.[9] The original site of the campus was selected from shortlisted competing sites, which include Falkirk, Perth and Inverness. The author of the Robbins Review, which recommended an expansion of the number of universities in the UK during the 1960s, Lord Robbins, was appointed as the university's first chancellor in 1968. In 1967 a house for the university principal Tom Cottrell was completed, designed by architects Morris and Steedman. It was listed as category A in 2009.[10]

The Pathfoot Building opened in 1967

The Pathfoot Building, which represented the first phase of development on the campus, was completed in 1968 and originally housed lecture theatres, offices and classrooms in addition to the 'crush hall' where the university displayed its emerging collection of contemporary Scottish art. The building was extended in 1979 to include a Tropical Aquarium and again in 1987 to include a Virology Unit associated with the university's Institute of Aquaculture. In 1993, the Pathfoot Building was selected by the international conservation organisation DoCoMoMo as one of sixty key Scottish monuments of the post-war era. It was also voted as one of Prospect's 100 best modern Scottish buildings. In 1970, development began on what was subsequently named the Cottrell Building, in memory of the university's first principal Cottrell. It comprises two parallel buildings with cross link corridors and interspersed courtyard gardens. The building today houses most of the university administration, lecture theatres, departmental offices, classrooms and computer laboratories. The University Library, Atrium and MacRobert Centre are housed in an adjoining building, the Andrew Miller Building, which was completed in 1971.[11]

On 13 October 1972, during a visit to the new campus by HM The Queen, she was subjected to a rowdy reception by students, widely reported in the media. The students were protesting about the lack of social spaces in what was at the time a relatively newly built university. The 24 students involved were charged for the disruption, but charges were later dropped.[12] There were no further Royal visits until 2011, when Prince Edward formally opened the refurbished library.[13]

A department of Business studies was set up in 1982.[14] The Institute of Aquaculture, a research institute specialising in fish farming and genetics, opened the same year. In 1983 it sold 300 acres of land to Wang Laboratories.[15] The R.G. Bomont Building (named after the second University Secretary), which houses the Faculty of Social Science, was completed in 1998. The Iris Murdoch building was opened in 2002 to house The Dementia Services Development Centre, and the Colin Bell Building was completed in 2003.


Airthrey Castle
Airthrey Castle

The university campus is set within 330 acres (1.3 km2) of grounds beneath the Ochil Hills, 2 miles (3.2 km) from the centre of Stirling, close to the town of Bridge of Allan. It is regularly described as one of the most beautiful campuses in the world[16] and was ranked 1st in the UK for its campus environment in the International Student Barometer 2016.[17] It is situated on the site of the historic Airthrey estate which includes the Robert Adam-designed 18th-century Airthrey Castle and includes the Hermitage woods, Airthrey Loch,[18] Airthrey Golf Course.[19] The Andrew Miller Building incorporates an Atrium, which contains several retail and food outlets including a bookstore, bank and general store. This building links the Library and Robbins' Centre Students' Union and has connecting bridges to the Cottrell Building, on-campus student residences and the MacRobert Arts Centre.

Airthrey Loch, the university's Cottrell Building and the Wallace Monument.

The Library holds over 500,000 volumes and over 9,000 journals. Home to the archives of both the novelist Patrick McGrath[20] and filmmaker Norman McLaren,[21] the Library reopened in August 2010 after a major refurbishment programme. MacRobert Arts Centre is a small theatre and cinema complex open to members of the university community and the general public. The university houses a considerable fine art collection in the Pathfoot Building, comprising over 300 works including paintings, tapestries and sculpture.[22]

The university previously maintained campuses in Inverness and Stornoway, which specialised in Nursing and Midwifery. The Highland site was on the outskirts of Inverness within the grounds of Raigmore Hospital. The Western Isles campus was located in Stornoway and the teaching accommodation was part of the Western Isles Hospital. In 2016, it was announced that the University of Stirling would be transferring delivery of its programmes on these campuses to the University of the Highlands and Islands.[23]


Willow Court, Halls of Residence

The University of Stirling student accommodation can cater for almost 3,000 students in over 20 properties located on and off campus.[24] Most accommodation is in university halls and located on campus. There are town houses at Alexander Court for families and groups of students. Of the 2,000 rooms located on-campus, 800 were built since 2013 as part of a £40m investment programme in student accommodation which was completed in September 2015.[25]

Halls of Residence located on campus include:

Residential buildings located off-campus, within Stirling city centre, include Union Street, Bayne Street, Lyon Crescent and John Forty's Court, as well as Centro House and Alangrange.

Sport facilities

National Swimming Academy

Stirling was designated as Scotland's University for Sporting Excellence by the Scottish Government in 2008.[26] Scholarships are available in five core sports: football, golf, swimming, tennis and triathlon, which allow student athletes to prepare for international competition.[27]

The university has a comprehensive range of sports facilities including a 9-hole Airthrey Golf Course[19] and a 50-metre swimming pool[28] completed in 2001 as part of the National Swimming Academy – a partnership between the university, Scottish Swimming and British Swimming. The sports centre also holds the Gannochy National Tennis Centre, badminton and squash courts, a fitness centre, strength and conditioning centre, sports halls and all-weather playing fields available for students, university staff and the public. The campus is the headquarters for a number of sports agencies including the sportscotland institute of sport, Commonwealth Games Scotland, Scottish Swimming and triathlonscotland.

At Rio 2016, a number of students and alumni from the university competed for Great Britain. Swimmers included Duncan Scott and Robbie Renwick, who both earned silver medals,[29] as well as Commonwealth gold medalist Ross Murdoch.[30]

Top seed tennis player Andy Murray and his brother Jamie Murray trained on the university courts when they were young.[31] Gordon Reid, wheelchair Olympic gold medalist in 2016, was a tennis scholar at the university.[32] The university men's and women's golf teams are consistently ranked among the best in Europe.[33]

The university's most senior football teams compete in the main Scottish league pyramid; the men's team in the regional fifth tier, and the women's team in the second tier. Lower teams compete in the BUCS Football Leagues. In January 2023, the men's football team made history by reaching the 4th round of the Scottish Cup. Losing 1-0 away to Dundee United.

In 2018, the university announced a £20 million transformation of its sports facilities.[34] The project included construction of a new sports centre, which opened in November 2020. The university's new sports centre includes a fitness suite with more than 100 stations, wireless connectivity, three Outrace functional rigs across the new spaces, and new public strength and conditioning area. The University of Stirling is one of the first universities in the UK to install Technogym's new Excite Live range of equipment.[35]

International degree partnerships

The university has international degree programme partnerships in Singapore,[36] Oman[37] and Vietnam.[38]

Ras al-Khaimah

In 2018, the university opened a branch in Ras al-Khaimah, United Arab Emirates.[39]

Organisation and governance

In August 2016, the university reorganised into four faculties, the Stirling Management School and the Stirling Graduate School.[40]


The statutes of the university are laid out in its royal charter. University Court is the governing body of the university and the Academic Council looks after academic affairs[41] Day-to-day management of the university is undertaken by Gerry McCormac, the University Principal and Vice-Chancellor.[42]

In June 2020, it was announced that Professor McCormac had also been elected to serve as Convener of Universities Scotland by his fellow principals. His two-year term commenced on 1 August 2020, and will last until 31 July 2022.[43]

The Council consists of various academics and is chaired by the Principal of the university.

Academic profile


Most Scottish degree programmes are designed to include four years of study with the intention of providing a broad and flexible education. Stirling has offered four-year, modular degree programmes since the university was first founded. In the 1960s and 1970s Credit Accumulation and Transfer Schemes, which create flexible pathways for students to acquire qualifications, were predominantly used in the US with the UK system operating on a disciplinary progression model. Initially, Stirling's modular approach, and its inherent flexibility, was seen as novel in the UK, but through time, more institutions moved to a semester basis and today almost all universities operate in this way.

Teaching at Stirling is delivered on a two-semester basis with the academic year beginning in mid-September and the first semester ending in mid-December. The second semester runs from the beginning of January to the end of May each year. At undergraduate level, three modules are taken in the first semester and three in the second. The basic module of study at Stirling is assigned 20 Scottish Credit and Qualifications Framework[51] (SCQF) credit points. Ordinary degrees have a minimum credit total of 360 points.

The university offers a wide range of undergraduate and postgraduate courses covering the liberal arts, natural science, management school and health science.[52] Stirling achieved a 5 Star Excellence Award for Teaching by QS Stars in 2016.[53]


Stirling is an interdisciplinary research-intensive University with a range of research activity focused on Health and Wellbeing; Culture and Society; Environment; Enterprise and the Economy; and Sport. The Research Excellence Framework also rated almost three-quarters of research activity either world-leading or internationally excellent.

The university is home to some specialist research centres:[54]

Stirling has a research publications database, STORRE, which is a source of free, full-text access research outputs.[55]

Business links

The university has major industrial research links through Stirling University Innovation Park. This large science park was founded in 1993 and is located adjacent to the main university campus. It is home to around 50 companies engaging in various forms of research and development.[56] During the 1990s the university built a stand-alone Management Centre on the campus. This developed over time into a Conference Centre with residential accommodation. In 2015, the Management Centre was rebranded the Stirling Court Hotel.

Student life

Students' Union

The University of Stirling Students' Union is based in the university's Robbins Centre Students' Union on campus and is affiliated to the National Union of Students. The union provides students with entertainment, welfare and information services and represents students interests to a range of organisations, including the university. Senior members of the union are entitled to seats on the University Court.[71] The union supports more than 90 clubs and societies.[72] The Sports Union supports 53 sports clubs. The university has student-run media services. Brig has been the campus newspaper since 1969. Air3 Radio was the first campus radio station in Scotland (previously URA – University Radio Airthrey), and AirTV (formerly Videoworks) is a television station for students, set up in 2002.

The Students' Union is governed by a board of trustees as well as a Chief Executive. The four sabbatical officers of the SU are the Union President, Sports President, Vice-President Education and Vice-President Communities. Alongside these full-time, paid officers are numerous part-time volunteer executive officers.[73]

On 14 November 2022, the student union voted to transition to 100% plant-based catering and all vegan meals within three years. The student union's three cafes will serve menus that are half vegan in 2023-24 academic year and be fully vegan by 2025.[74] Animal-based agricultural groups on campus criticised the move and student activists faced personal abuse at their homes.[75]
