Tell us about your overall university experience so far.
I am in my second year and I am really enjoying my experience. The lecturers are brilliant and explain things so well and have no problem going over things with you. I have not had any negative experiences
How good are your university's facilities?
The university has great facilities. The campus is beautiful and is always well maintained and the university is always clean. There are good eateries and lots of toilet facilities too
How good is the support offered by the uni? Think both academic (tutors/feedback) and personal (counselling, etc).
There is a lot of support available. There are drop in sessions where you can get help with essays and lots of lectures on writing essays. There is also a counselling service and a very helpful money support team
What do you think of your Students' Union in terms of student representation and facilities?
I think it is brilliant
Is your university in a good location in terms of distance to accommodation and local amenities?
I live in Alloa so I am a 30 minute bus journey to uni. It is easy for me to get to uni as there are ample buses
Societies and Sports(5)
How would you rate the variety of societies/sports?
I am not a member of any clubs and societies but there is a lot going on at Stirling which is great.
Lecturers and teaching quality(5)
What do you like most and least about the way your course(s) are taught?
I feel that Listen Again is very useful as I find that writing notes helps and its not always possible to get enough notes at the lectures so being able to listen again later is very useful. The downfall is that some of the microphones are quiet.
How many contact hours per week do you have?
How does your uni make efforts to increase your employability (careers department, work placements, transferable skills)?
There are careers fayres and within the course that I am studying, there have been people coming in to do talks which is very interesting and gives you a feel for the kind of professions you would like to get in to
