I chose to study at the University of Stirling because it is one of the best universities in the world. The Faculty members are highly experienced and the employability rate of the graduates from the Aquaculture courses, is exceptionally high. The lecturers always try to help solve our problems with a smiling face. The campus is spectacular. Staff members are extremely helpful and I feel this place is like my second home.
