Ambitious Futures – The Graduate Programme for University Leadership

***UPDATE*** date now set for information session: 20th October 2016 @ 2-3pm, here in the Careers and Employability Service, Cottrell 3A1. If you have graduated within the last 5 years, do come along to find out more!

You’re reading this because you’re intrigued about what a university’s graduate programme has to offer you. A leadership career in the university sector is perhaps not something you’ve thought of before. However, for ambitious and talented graduates, it should be a very significant and appealing prospect.

The university sector is one of the most innovative, vibrant and exciting environments in which to build your future career. If you’re looking for a graduate programme that leads to a highly successful and dynamic career in an entrepreneurial, global business, Ambitious Futures is it.


This cutting-edge programme will show you how the challenging and stimulating business of a university operates. You’ll meet some of the most talented people in the country, if not the world, and gain an inside view into the sector’s management and business processes. A key aspect of your training will see you working alongside a diverse range of partners, from students and employers to funding bodies and commercial organisations.

It’s the opportunity to contribute to a life you have already experienced and enjoyed, and make a difference to the learning of future generations of students. What’s more, you’ll be working at the heart of fast-paced and world-leading commercial organisations that, rather unusually, are not primarily motivated by profit-making.

Sarah Anderson and Katie Cattanach, two current Graduate Trainees at the University of Stirling, have put together a snappy Powtoon (which you can view here), about this exciting programme. They will be hosting a series of evening information events for students and graduates alike, so do keep an eye out on our blog pages and FB pages for the dates of these sessions.
