Preparing for study at University - Stirling Essentials
Our Stirling Essentials module 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. There are separate versions for undergraduate and postgraduate students.
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.
Feedback and guidance sessions
All modules offer regular feedback and guidance sessions when you can call in and ask your lecturer or tutor any queries you have on the module. Full details of when these sessions are held will be included in your module handbooks.
