As a new student at INTO University of Stirling there's nothing to be afraid of. The staff are super friendly. When I first arrived, I thought it would take a long time for me to find my way about campus. However the staff gave us an InstaQuest to figure out our way around campus which was a fun and challenging activity and was the best way to find your class!

For food shopping you can just walk to the supermarket on campus which makes life so easy. There's a variety of entertainment on campus ranging from great sports facilities to the Macrobert Arts Centre, where you have a cinema and a theatre. Stirling Students Union has a number of social places on campus such as Starbucks and Studio which serves food and drink. There's also many different student societies and clubs where you can meet new people and have a break from the academic environment for a while.

The city of Stirling is a very cute, compact city that has a great shopping centre. The public transportation is really easy. There's direct buses from campus that go to Stirling and the nearby town of Bridge of Allan. There's also two train stations, one in Bridge of Allan and one in Stirling, which connect you to the rest of Scotland and the UK. 

Everyone at INTO Stirling are really friendly, kind and very helpful, so don't hesitate to ask any questions you may have.
