Starting university is a very exciting time, and there will be lots of things to do before you start classes. That's why we've created a handy guide to help you navigate your way through your first week on campus.
Autumn semester starts on Monday 9 September 2019.
Staying in University accommodation?
Moving in weekend is on the 7 and 8 September 2019. You'll be given a moving in date, time and key collection point, once you've completed the accommodation induction on our portal.
Each of our Faculties have an induction so that you can meet the staff, other students and learn how things work at Stirling. You'll get essential information to help you settle in and find your feet. There's also first meetings for each of the subjects you're studying. If you're a joint honours student then you should attend the events for both subject areas.
To get your lecture timetable, use the timetable generator to give you a personal lecture timetable. The timetable for the autumn semester will be available in August. The timetable generator only includes lecture times for each module. Signup for tutorials/seminars/labs is usually done through Canvas, the University's online learning environment at the beginning of the semester. When you're fully enrolled (got your ID card), you'll get access to Canvas.
Seminars and tutorials do not appear on timetable initially as they will be available at the start of semester through Canvas. Depending on the subject you're studying, there may be a choice of tutorial or seminar times so do check your modules promptly when you get access to Canvas, to choose a suitable slot for you.
All students will be allocated a personal tutor. Details of who your personal tutor is will appear on your portal once you are fully enrolled. They will be in touch to arrange to meet you in the first two weeks of semester.
Freshers' Week is aweek of activities and events put on to welcome you to your new home, the University of Stirling! Check out the official Stirling Students' Union Freshers' page to find out what to expect. Details will be posted as they become available, so be sure to check back to the site regularly before you arrive.
