The University of Stirling’s history begins with a visionary who recognised that society was being transformed and it needed people skilled in navigating change.
Lord Robbins, the University’s 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. Since then the University has grown to over 14,000 students from over 120 nationalities and has over 92,000 alumni in 170 countries.
Undoubtedly today the University of Stirling campus is one of the most attractive campuses in the UK. With views of a loch (lake), castle and mountains to enjoy students find the campus a beautiful and peaceful place to live.
The University of Stirling is ranked 38th in the UK in the Complete University Guide 2022.
