Postgraduate welcome

We love welcoming new students into our postgraduate community in the Faculty of Health Sciences and Sport.

We understand that starting at a new University, whether in person or online, can be daunting. As well as running a series of welcome events to help you settle in quickly, the University has a dedicated Student Support team which can assist you with everything from exam preparation to personal or financial challenges. Your course staff and personal tutor will also be on hand to support you throughout your studies. Our welcome events will help you meet staff, other students and learn a little about how things work at Stirling.

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 early in your first semester who will contact you via email. You are encouraged to arrange to meet with them.

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.
