Preparing to study in the UK
Studying in the UK may be very different to studying in your home country. Even students from countries whose education system is similar to the UK will find that there are differences.
There are some steps you can take before you arrive in the UK to help with your studies:
1. Get to know your course of study
Read any information that you have received about your course, and, if possible, read about the subject using the recommended introductory reading your course director may share with you before the course starts.
Check out the induction information for your course and make sure you arrive in time to take part in these events and the Welcome Week events. These will help you to get orientated and prepared to begin your study at Stirling.
