International students

We can’t wait to welcome you to the UK and to the University of Stirling. It is essential that you work through our international student induction programme, a series of free online workshops to help you understand the expectations of studying at Stirling.

There’s also some extra things you need to do in preparation for your arrival, so we’ve got lots of useful guidance for you in our international students section.

Stirling Essentials

You should also access Stirling Essentials, an on-line module to help you prepare for study at University. You need to complete the essential activities in each section. We recommend you work through this module before you arrive. Stirling Essentials will be available throughout your studies as it is the gateway to a wide range of advice and study skills resources.
