We think it's the perfect size. The population's around 45,000 - 20% of whom are students.
Stirling city centre is just two miles from the campus - less than 10 minutes by bus.
Stirling combines the charm of a historic destination with the buzz of a contemporary city. There's truly something for everyone, much of it aimed directly at students.
The city lights up at night, and many pubs, clubs and bars gear themselves towards students, with themed nights and DJs, whilst there is also a selection of traditional pubs providing quieter alternatives, with open fires, real ale and folk music.
The city's a major tourist destination, something reflected in the wide choice of cuisine at the numerous restaurants, bistros and cafes.
Consistently lower than neighbouring cities such as Glasgow and Edinburgh. With plenty of accommodation on campus, you can minimise travel costs. And the self-catering halls mean you can cook to your own budget if you wish.
