THE LOCATION
Stirling is Scotland's newest city and is a short bus ride from campus. With a population of around 41,000, the city offers a warm community welcome and is within easy reach of both Glasgow (50 min. by train) and Edinburgh (25 min. by train).

With a student population of 9,000, the University of Stirling is known for programs in Film & Media Studies, English, History, Environmental Science, Management, and Sociology. Built in the rolling hills of a former Airthrey estate- with Airthrey Castle still in place as a teaching building- the Stirling campus boasts a friendly atmosphere and a strong community spirit. In 2009-2010, students selected the University of Stirling as the Scottish University of the Year.
