A place to call home
Students rate Stirling 1st in the UK for its “good campus environment”. We offer a wide range of modern, comfortable and secure postgraduate residences on and off campus.
We strive to ensure all our students are able to embrace life as a part of our vibrant postgraduate community – which is why our extensive student support services are always on standby to lend a helping hand.
The postgraduate experience has been outstanding due to the level of guidance provided by my lecturers. What I like about my course is that it incorporates planetary science into a remote sensing degree. I have also gained experience in coding and data science.
