Welcome activities and information sessions

In the first few weeks and throughout the semester, we will be running different activities, both on-campus and online, to help you make a great start to life at Stirling.

We'll be putting a schedule of welcome activities together for those starting in January and February 2021, ensuring all activities comply with the latest Scottish Government social distancing regulations. Please note that any schedule is subject to change.
