I had never studied a business related subject before, therefore this was all new to me. I feel that doing a 4 years programme which included the 1st year been more of a foundation introduction to the course helped me to understand the business world more and many of the accounting and Finance modules that I took.

Also, the range of lectures that I had were very helpful and it was easy to get hold of them. Especially in 3rd and 4th year when the course got difficult. There was always support and additional materials such as listen again. The library always had the books available for the module and also further books relating to the modules.

Overall, I enjoyed the course, the lectures had different teaching styles and methods which made it more bearable. They also provided useful feedback for the coursework and were always happy to provide more information. Also, I met a great range of people in the course.

I've really enjoyed my time on the course. I feel like I've learned so many practical skills rather than all theoretical. The staff are all great and so helpful. As there is a small number of people on the course you are able to develop relationships with lecturer where you can pop into their office at any time and they're always more than happy to have a chat. The facilities are good and the views are stunning.

Overall, the degree is fun and demanding. While I have not enjoyed certain aspects of the course, such as some of the core modules, my enjoyment had increased ten fold since I have chosen my modules. The history department are great and extremely helpful, the other departments I have worked in could learn from them

In both French and English Studies, the modules are well organized, the lectures are interesting, the content is thought-provoking and well-explained. The French course, however, is taught in English, and time spent actually speaking French is minimal. One could finish their degree with a perfect understanding of grammar, and an inability to actually speak the language. It would also be interesting to have seminars on interpretation.

The course accommodates students who, before attending uni, have little or no experience in object oriented programming. However the course can be slow to make progress because of this. Lecturers of the computing science course are very accommodating and encourage students to ask questions during and after lectures, and keep their door open for students to drop in to ask for advice. Finally, the assessment style is split using weighted exams, practical sessions, and coursework, striking a balance between practical experience and theoretical knowledge.

I am currently in my 3rd year at Stirling university, studying nursing. I've loved every minute of my time at Stirling. As soon as I visited the campus for my interview I knew immediately it was for me. I got such a good vibe. The campus is absolutely beautiful! You never get bored of walking around the stunning grounds/ and posting those famous Instagram photos of the lake. It's a great location.. With quick routes to Glasgow and Edinburgh. The nursing course has equipt me with confidence, skills ... and above all 3 years of fun!! The nightlife isn't as vibrant as say Glasgow but in good company Tuesday nights at dusk nightclub can be memorable. I'll be sad to leave..

Overall, very comprehensive course. The two compulsory modules provide a good foundation for those new to psychology, and a nice refresher that expands the knowledge of those who have studied it before. Second year is more challenging and in depth modules are enjoyable as they cover broad areas of psychology, such as perception. Third year topics are more varied, and include a statistic module, and two group projects. Throughout, the lecturers are helpful, and feedback on projects is generally constructive.
