I chose Stirling on first impressions after falling for the Loch and the campus. I did not regret it as I had a memorable time on my course, with my lecturers (who were approachable as well as knowledgeable) and socially, where the nature of the campus and halls of residence allowed me to meet so many great people studying different subjects.
