I chose to study my law degree here degree because of Stirling’s friendly and communal atmosphere. The small class sizes within the Law division of the Faculty of Arts and Humanities mean that you’re seen as an individual, rather than just a student number.
The Faculty staff members are very approachable; always encouraging their students to reach their full potential, whether that be academically or through extra-curricular activities such as the Student Law Society. Furthermore, they have vast knowledge and expertise in a wide variety of legal disciplines.
Over the past five years the University and in particular the Law division of the Faculty of Arts and Humanities have allowed me to develop both my professional and personal skills to my fullest potential, in both my Law degree and the Diploma in Legal Practice. I have recently commenced a Legal Traineeship in Edinburgh and I hope to qualify as a Scottish solicitor in September 2013.
The campus itself has everything that students need: a sports centre, castle, cinema, shops, doctor’s surgery, dentist, bank and the Student Union. The library, lecture theatres and seminar rooms are only five minutes walk from the Halls of Residence. Furthermore, the University is just a 10 minute bus journey from the centre of Stirling town. So if you are looking for a relaxed and friendly environment in which to further your education, I would recommend the University of Stirling to you.
