What's great about Stirling?
Stirling blends historic architecture with modern charm. Surrounded by miles of idyllic Scottish countryside, this is a truly beautiful place to live and learn.
Although smaller than some other UK cities, you'll still experience the best parts of living in a city. You'll have plenty of shops, historic sites and art venues to explore and many cafés, pubs, restaurants and clubs to go to.
The best thing about Stirling's modest size is the warm community feel. It's home to 100,000 people – 14,000 of which are students at the University – so you should have no trouble finding friends here.
Stirling has a peaceful, safe environment and a low cost of living. With so much natural beauty around, you'll have plenty of opportunities for outdoor activities!
After a 15-minute bus ride from campus, you'll be in the city centre. From there, you can use the great bus and rail networks to explore the rest of Scotland and the UK.
