To put it in simple terms, If you love nsture and I mean you do not mind feeding ducks and squirrels or seeing the scary spiders or the huge trees and you love socialising. The University of Stirling will be the single best university choice for you, absolutely nothing can compare to it. Be prepared tho, as the size of the university can be very overwhelming at times, do not be surprised if you have to walk a marathon during your days.

The students union support need to be developed, as to get feedback is taking ages after several reminders, also an virtual introduction is a must to be enclosed with the registration process. Until this moment I'm struggling to contact the concerned focal point to have some guidance which is automatically affect my study plan

Courses are varied. I personally am on a law degree and thankfully all the professors are experts in their fields. The campus is currently undergoing renovations and are opening new facilities left, right and center. If you don't want to attend an overpopulated university, I'd definitely recommend Stirling.

PhD Candidates and international students: don't do it. I spent 6.5 long years at this university, from my undergraduate to a PhD. During my PhD, my contact time was 1 hour per month. When I requested more frequent meetings, I was informed I was not a priority as my minimum contact time requirements (as per contract) were being met. In-fighting, next to no communication between departments, extremely anti-other universities sentiment, and the services provided are only functional on a surface level. Staff are overworked and stretched unspeakably thin. Before I quit, all teaching assistants positions were indefinitely suspended, leaving professors to handle hundreds of students on their own, making the teaching staff to student ratio 1 to 200. PhD students hoping for teaching experience or professional development are given false promises and taken advantage of. Ableist policies, next to no mental health or disability awareness among staff beyond the reassuring copy-paste email.

Very nice campus and environment, although it's quite far from the city. Good choice of societies and sports, but the actual facilities are still being developed, and there's not much available for students at the moment, so maybe in a couple of years, it'll be better. The new lounge area is very large and useful for those who like informal study sessions. The accommodations, however, are ugly and overpriced.

The uni is good and the staff is very helpful to students, lessons and seminars are great and there's a huge presence of international students, which is good. On the other hand, Stirling town is small and pretty boring, but fortunately there are several trains to other cities.

I had such high expectations before coming to this university, looking back now I regret going there. I did not learn any new skills attending this university. The lecturers are not organized and rarely helpful. The staff is rarely helpful especially the accommodation office. I lived on campus and the laundry machines there were broken. They are still not fixed after 6 months. Student accommodation is not good. The houses are old, rusty and dirty.

I wouldn't say I was ashamed to go here but I won't actively tell people. The computer science course is thankfully changing but it is still quite outdated with bad facilities in the computer science department. Its a shame as the lecturers are good people and try very hard. The accommodation is expensive and the transport from town to campus are a nightmare as First bus has a monopoly and the university doesn't care. The university does not prioritize students and I feel like the library is the only facility that cares. Results come out late and feedback is spacey

Campus is great as most of the accommodation is all bundled together which is ideal in first year as it's really easy to make and meet friends. Societies are really good too, everyone is really accommodating and friendly. You just have to man up and go to the give it a go's and you'll find it wasn't nearly as scary as you thought it would be. Unions is good, cheap drinks nice food and karaoke night is always fun. I haven't made use of the careers service so can't review that. Internet is reliable and works for all my devices it just sometimes take a minute to reconnect.

Absolutely beautiful campus, accommodation is a bit expensive but worth it, the grocery store and restaurants/delis on campus are expensive as hell so wouldn't suggest shopping there, take the bus into the city centre and get your groceries there. Other than that, beautiful study areas(indoor and outdoor), fantastic student help services, and an overall incredible experience.

The campus looks really cool from the outside, but the university has a lot of problems. This is a university motivated by money and not student welfare. Exam results are never posted on time and support staff are few and have a high turnover. On campus accomodation is appalling especially for postgraduates and very overpriced. Returning students are always evicted from their accomodation in mid August until mid September and expected to go find somewhere else to live. Teaching staff are mostly on zero hours contracts, so tend to disappear after lectures.

I would not recommend, the course does not worth to go. The learning content is outdated, no relevant modern theories, we discussed case studies 10 years ago, and all students were bored doing something else like facebook for whole class. Lectures trying to not spend their time on teaching, slides in classes are very poorly made with mistakes every week, they tell students they cannot give academic advice because they are marking, feedbacks on assignments are just stupid, we don't get any feedback on our presentations. Administrations are awful, always very late and some students could not attend a study trip because of their faults, takes more than a month to make an appointment with tutors.

Amazing campus!! Can't walk 5 mins outside without seeing a squirrel or a rabbit. The Loch is lovely too. Lots of dog walkers. Uni buildings are close to each other and relatively modern. Food available is good but expensive. It's very handy to have things like a pharmacy and bookshop on campus, but again very expensive. Clubs + Socs are expensive and clique-y, nothing caught my interest. All the give-it-a-gos are pubcrawls which isn't great if you're under 18. The sports clubs are also not very accommodating to casual players/beginners. I met lots of friends in the few clubs I tried but otherwise it's not worth it unless it's something you really care about. Don't know much about career opportunities but there's some brilliant study abroad options for all degrees.

Stirling University is beautiful, if the surroundings can't inspire you I do not know what will. Sitting in the library looking at the views makes it less monotonous. Halls are a brilliant experience, but I wouldn't pay the extortionate prices for the newer buildings - spend that extra money on booze to bond with your new flat mates. The only downfall to the uni is the lack of available modules for your specified course. Taking additional modules in a subject you have no idea about is annoying especially when you have to try and pass the module!

I can't help but get the feeling that this university tries very hard to milk every penny from our pockets. Overpriced facilities, cafes and shops on campus in which obnoxious staff members sell food low in quality are prime examples. The porters in the halls of residence seem like they have been dragged through hell for most of their life and exhibit their misery onto students all too keenly. The student union is useless. I have remained completely uninterested with their activities since freshers week (3years ago). The best part of this university is the sports facilities which I cannot fault. I haven't had much activity with the careers office but it appears to be competent. In conclusion this university has so much potential to fulfill but has failed to come even close to doing so.

The campus itself is stunning to look at, the buildings not so much. Although they are rebuilding halls at the moment. The staff in my faculty are friendly and helpful but I have heard otherwise from friends in their subjects. Jobs are hard to come by unless you have experience due to the small size of the area. Generally I great place to study, although I wouldn't want to live here forever.

It's an amazing university, the campus is stunning and it truly offers everything one could want and more. It has a great community spirit and has a range of sports teams to join, from American football to quidditch - as well as all sorts of societies too. The student union is great also, and if you feel like going somewhere different for a change you can hop on the bus into town and there are plenty of other places to go to. 96% of graduates go onto employment or further study 6 months after graduating and the Internet/wifi is really fast - it very rarely let me down if at all. All in all, a class environment to study in.

Stirling university was the best decision I have ever made. The campus provides a tranquil place to study and provides a sense of community amoung students. The staff at stirling university never made me feel alone I have always felt supported and I know that help was always there if I needed it. I would recommend this university to everyone especially prospective undergraduates.

Amazing university and can't think of one issue I have with it!! Had an amazing two years and feel like I've grown so much being here. Wouldn't change it for the world. Except for maybe a subway or something in the main campus area..

Beautiful campus, wonderful fellow students, decent course, good freshers week, however staff do not post exam results online like they are supposed to, poor on campus facilities, buses to Stirling are far too expensive, and worst of all the price for campus accommodation can only be described as exploitative, as the cost is extortionate and the dorms are in utterly revolting condition. I would recommend the university, however it has some key issues that need improving immediately. I would not recommend living on campus.

I'm study in the highland campus in Inverness. There is no students union or any club or societies up here. The accommodation is also not very appealing. The placements are great as you get to see rural Scotland however sometimes the university is not accommodating when you have finical issues and can't afford your 'away' placement. Overall it is a great uni with just some minor issues in the highland campus.
