I went to the open day there lasy year and a thing for the school where we stayed in the residences and went to pretendy lectures and stuff it was quite good but iwanted to go somewhere in a city. If you want to live on a campus thats all self contained outside the city then its a good place to go(although it does have the highest suicide rate for scotland! sad.gif )

Lovely campus (beautiful natural setting, theatre on campus, etc.) although as dondon says some may rather stay in a city environment. Although the campus is on the edge of town there are cheap buses into Stirling town centre.
The flats on campus are small, yet cheap. Sports facilities are very good (if you're a swimmer or tennis player at least).
Course entry requirements tend to be lower than those of Edinburgh, St. Andrews, Glasgow, and the like, which may result in degrees from Stirling being less impressive to some employers.
Please vote for me! (Brendan Howard, 5th from bottom, only 1 vote required): http://answers.polld...m/poll/2330393/

Thanks for the feedback. I'm used to being in an area completely away from the city life. Plus I can always hop on the train, I'm used to travelling too. Hopefully it won't make me suicidal! I think perhaps they are referring those figures to Stirling itself, which I've heard is really rough at nights etc from afew sources.

Besides the degree is accredited by the BPS, so I'll be alright lol. I hope! Plus I love countryside, haha, me running naked in fields and such like tongue.gif

my brother went to Stirling University, and he loved it i think. its got a great campus, plus if its a sports degree your thinking of (thats what my brother did), its got fantastic things for that, with all the sporty stuff! its also not that far from Glasgow, only around 40 minutes on the train.

i think its a great Uni, and has got a good name for itself, a few of my friends are thinking of going their for P.E. Teaching, but seemingly its VERY difficult to get in to, as their are only 12 spaces!!

If you can keep your head when all about you
Are losing theirs and blaming it on you,
If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you
But make allowance for their doubting too,
If you can wait and not be tired by waiting,
Or being lied about, don't deal in lies,
Or being hated, don't give way to hating,
And yet don't look too good, nor talk too wise:
Yours is the Earth and everything that's in it,
And--which is more--you'll be a Man, my son!

I want to study Psychology (Bsc) at Stirling. Wondered if anyone else was wanting to go, not just for Psychology. I didn't quite fancy the traditional Glasgow and Edinburgh Uni's much lol. Plus I will be used to the isolation, seen as though I live in a dead-beat area anyways.

Apparently the swimming pools open all hours, which I thought was quite dodgy. Fun although I don't fancy swimming with weirdos at 4am in the morning.

I have two offers to study at Stirling:

1. LLB Law (accredited by the Law Society of Scotland)
2. BA Politics with History

Hav not seen the campus as our school would only let us go to 2 open days and I was applying to four unis, but will go to applicants day to have a look round. Will probably Firmly accept the LLB at Stirling (although havn't made my mind up yet as I have an offer at another uni) and accept their BA in politics and History as my Insurance one.

I'm going to the applicant day this sat march 18th. I'm going to have a good look at the acommodation and then wander round. The only thing i'm not too keen on is having my mum and dad trailing around with me. I feel really immature needing them to go about with me, but they are driving I suppose. I must look so young compared to the students already there haha tongue.gif
