International Student Handbook

This handbook will help you make the transition from your home country to the UK and the University of Stirling.

It provides advice and information on a range of issues. Please take the time to read it as it will help you prepare for your time as a Stirling student. Your studies are of course vitally important and they will progress more successfully if you have prepared for all aspects of your time in the UK. For this reason much of the information in this handbook is not directly related to your studies but will help you to adjust to everyday life in the UK.

If you are concerned about any of the issues raised in this handbook please contact the staff at the International & Postgraduate Office. You can email us at
