University of Stirling

Introduction

What's special about the University?

Often described as one of the most beautiful campuses in the UK, the University of Stirling campus is unique. Set within a 330-acre estate with its own loch and castle, surrounded by the beautiful Scottish countryside. This creates a relaxed, peaceful atmosphere. And with 11,000 students, you'll feel a big part of the community there.

The MacRobert Arts Centre is the cultural hub of campus. With its own public art collection and theatre where you can watch live comedy and dance performances. There is also a cinema that screens indie and Hollywood films.

Looking for a fun place to meet with friends on campus? There are three coffee shops and ten restaurants and bars to choose from. Enjoy a homemade meal - choose from Italian, American, British and traditional Scottish foods. Watch live sports, take part in a pub quiz or sing your heart out at karaoke!

Not a morning person? No problem. With 24/7 access to computers across campus, you can study at whatever time suits you best. Each cafe has WiFi access, so you can take your laptop and study there too.

The University library has over 300,000 books, 46,000 e-books and 45,000 e-journals. The Study Zone provides 24/7 access to study spaces, PCs and printing facilities - everything you need for successful studies! And the Careers and Employability Service offers specialist advice from faculty-focused careers and employability consultants.

Regular exercise is a great way to stay happy and healthy during your studies. You'll have access to a 50-metre swimming pool, gym and fully-equipped fitness suite, outdoor pitches and indoor squash and tennis courts. Want to try your hand at golf? A driving range and a nine-hole golf course surround Airthery Castle for you to use. You'll find over 50 sports clubs and societies to join at Stirling.

Need to buy a book? Arrange a flight? Collect a prescription? You can do it all on campus. The shopping precinct has a bank, travel agent, bookshop, supermarket and pharmacy.

Preparing you for success

You may find studying in the UK different from what you’re used to. Don’t worry, the friendly teaching staff are there to help you adapt. They’ll show you how to conduct your research and reference your sources.

You’ll get plenty of practice and support with writing academic essays and doing presentations. When the time comes, you’ll be ready for your degree.

A great place to learn

Join a community of students from over 115 countries. Because it's a campus-based University, the atmosphere is friendly, sociable and close-knit. Stirling was ranked 1st for 'a good place to be' (ISB 2012).

The University is committed to making sure you have the best student experience in the UK. They work closely with students to deliver the best service and degree programmes possible. This is why they have achieved a 5-star excellence award for teaching, facilities and inclusiveness in the 2014 QS Stars University Ratings.

A study centre designed for you

You'll find the INTO Centre at the heart of campus, just minutes away from the main University of Stirling library, sports centre and Students’ Union.

Worried about living away from home? There's no need to be. Whenever you want to talk to someone, go to the INTO Centre. The support services are based there. Feeling homesick? Problem with your accommodation? Whatever the issue, they're there for you when you need them.

Moving to a new country is a big step, but they'll help you settle in. The friendly support staff will help you open a UK bank account and register with a doctor. Need help with your visa? Come along to one of the visa workshops and they'll sort it together.

What about making friends? Living in student accommodation means you'll always be at the heart of the action. You'll make friends from the moment you arrive on campus. Your fellow students can't wait to meet you!

The INTO Centre organises some fun activities and trips for you and your new friends. This gives you some great bonding time outside of the classroom. Don't forget, you'll be able to join any of the 100+ clubs and societies at the University. They're a wonderful way to make friends who share your interests.

Modern, interactive classrooms

Each classroom has the latest learning technology. The desks have built-in computers connected to the interactive whiteboards, so it’s easy to get involved. You won’t just be sitting and listening to someone talk – you’ll be learning through doing. You’ll love interacting with everything.


Learning beyond the classroom

You’ll also have access to Succeed, the University’s virtual learning environment. This means you can download lecture notes and course content on the move. And you can take part in online discussions with classmates and your tutors.

The Learning Resource Centre is a dedicated learning space containing study areas and items to borrow. You’ll find books, DVDs, journals, CDs and newspapers there. Need to print or scan something? Come along to the Learning Resource Centre.


Cafés on campus

It’s important to take regular breaks when studying. For times when you need to refuel, you’ll find three different cafes and ten different places to eat on campus.

You’ll find light meals such as sandwiches, salads and soups throughout campus. When you need something more filling, there are burgers, pizzas, nachos and shawarma wraps. You’re never too far from a freshly brewed coffee, lunch or a snack.
