Why undertake a PhD at Stirling?
Our aim is simple. We want our research to change lives and tackle the global issues of our time. So we provide the best conditions for our thriving community of 3,800 UK and international postgraduate students studying with us.
Collaboration is at the core of our approach – not just working across disciplines but also with business, other universities, the public sector and government. Our academics are experts in their fields, internationally-recognised and shaping research groups and hubs.
As a postgraduate researcher at Stirling, you will benefit from our Institute for Advanced Studies. The Institute offers a wide range of support and development opportunities, including access to our Researcher Development Programme and Career Development Centre.
Work is also underway on our £21.7 million Campus Central project – a major infrastructure investment which saw the opening of our brand-new Study Zone in early 2020. The Study Zone is a dedicated learning and research collaboration space designed to encourage knowledge exchange and help you to develop your research passion.
