The teachers and staff at INTO Stirling are friendly and welcoming. They really helped me feel more at home. The teachers are super passionate about their subjects, which brings a new light on topics that I may not have explored that deeply previously. I felt more engaged in the classroom and I really started to explore new interests. I began thinking that a single honours Psychology degree was definitely what I wanted to do, but just being at INTO has shown me that a joint degree is more for me. I will be studying a BA (Hons) Film and Media and Psychology in September 2020.

The University of Stirling campus is beautiful. Being able to live on campus is perfect, especially for my first year away from home. It allowed me to be within walking distance of the INTO building and still only be 10 minutes (by bus) from the centre of the city of Stirling. There is an abundance of things to do on campus including many cafes and restaurants. The gym facilities are amazing, and with them only being a 5-minute walk away I really took advantage of them.

Getting on and off of campus is really easy. There is a UniLink bus that stops on campus and takes you into the centre of Stirling. Stirling is pretty central in relation to the rest of Scotland, so it’s simple to get to the cities of Edinburgh and Glasgow. From there you can explore the rest of the UK.
