You'll be given access to Stirling Essentials in mid-August. It's an on-line module which will help you prepare for study at University. 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.
The timetable for the autumn semester will be available in August. To get your lecture timetable, use the timetable generator to give you a personal lecture timetable.
We have a variety of study facilities in our library including group study rooms, individual study desks and open study areas. Our Campus Central project is also bringing lots more study spaces across the campus in 2020/21.
The feedback you receive on your work at University is an important part of your learning and will help you become an independent learner. It comes in a lot of different forms and is not just the comments you receive on submitted work. The University and the Students’ Union have developed a Student Guide to Feedback (PDF) setting out what you can expect and what you need to do with your feedback.
All modules have feedback and guidance sessions where you can meet with your tutor or lecturer on a one-to-one or group basis to get advice, clarify points, and seek more feedback. Details of when and where these are will be in your module handbook on Canvas.
