Preparing for study at University - Stirling Essentials
Stirling Essentials provides a summary of the key information you need to be a successful student and it links into more in-depth help and advice, as and when you need it. Before you arrive, please do take some time to familiarise yourself with this module and work through its sections. This module will remain available to you throughout your studies, through a link on each Canvas module. (Log on with your University username and password, if requested.)
Your personal tutor
You'll be assigned a personal tutor during the first week of your studies in Stirling. The role of a personal tutor is to help you feel part of the University community and to act as a specific and consistent source of guidance, information and support throughout your studies. Your tutor should always be available as a formal point of contact for general academic guidance or pastoral support.
Student voice - make a difference to the student experience
The Students’ Union appoints Student Faculty Officers each year who are there to represent all students across the Faculty, making sure that the student voice is part of all decisions which affect student learning. Each Faculty Officer is associated with a division and are paired with key Faculty staff to look at how students are experiencing their studies and University life. This can be anything from student employability, assessment and feedback, to lecturing, modules, and more.
