The buildings don't really fit in but you get used to them after a while. Studying- Decent sized library, although many of the books are old.

Stirling University

AdvantagesBroad choice of degrees to study, Lovely surrounding and near to city centre

Disadvantagesno good pubs/clubs on campus and not very good IT facilities

Not only is there a wide and varied choice of degrees to choose from, there is also flexibility when choosing your modules, especially in the first two years. For example, even though I am currently studying geography, I can choice two other modules to study during the semester ranging from English to history, ..." Read review
