As Scotland’s official University for Sporting Excellence, it’s no surprise that eight current and former University of Stirling students were selected to represent Great Britain at the 2016 Summer Olympics.

Stirling students Duncan Scott and Robbie Renwick formed part of the team that came second in the men’s 4x200m freestyle relay, winning a silver medal for Team GB. Other sports represented by Stirling students at this year’s Games were tennis, golf and boccia.

The University of Stirling is ranked 1st in Scotland for high-quality sports facilities and campus environment (Times Higher Education Student Experience Survey 2016),

Unique facilities at the University include:

  • The National Swimming Academy, with an Olympic-sized, six-lane pool
  • The Gannochy National Tennis Centre
  • The MP Jackson Fitness Centre
