Welcome and congratulations to all our new students!
We're sure you just can't wait until Freshers' Week begins on 12 September, but there are a few things you really need to do before you arrive:
Visit our Welcome microsite. This is your essential first-stop where you can enrol as a new student, register for academic modules, book your accommodation and much, much more. Don't forget the handy checklists for undergraduate and postgraduate students.
What's on during Freshers' Week
Your first week at University can be daunting, so make sure you visit our information stalls and attend our range of talks. There is information on everything you need to know including accommodation, finance, support for students and the Students' Union. Parents' aren't forgotten either, with our Essential Guide for Parents to University Life and our Families' Welcome below.
Our Principal & Vice-Chancellor is looking forward to welcoming you to our Families' Welcome Reception. The reception will commence with short welcome speeches from the Principal and Students' Union President, and you will then have the opportunity to enjoy light refreshments and to meet and chat with senior members of the University. Register today and join us at 2.30pm on Saturday 12 September, Crush Hall, Pathfoot building.
Welcome Reception for International and Postgraduate Students
The University welcomes its international and postgraduate students to a reception hosted by Deputy Principal Professor Malcolm MacLeod.

Our warm Stirling welcome begins with drinks in the MacRobert Arts Centre, before the fun continues with refreshments at the Students’ Union.
