“The Sports Studies course offered such a variety of different modules choices which helped me to map out a future career path within the sporting profession that was best suited to me. I had such an enjoyable experience as an undergraduate that I decided I wanted to return to Stirling to gain a Masters in the Psychology of Sport.
“For both teaching and recreational purposes, the sport facilities at Stirling are first-class. There is an excellent gym on campus and this allowed me to take part in and gain my gym instructor qualification.
“I really like the School of Sport because of the professional and friendly manner in which the staff interact with the students. The support given to me during my four years as an undergraduate was second-to-none.
