This is a great university for Chinese international students
You'll love it. Whether its a Master course or undergraduate you should choose this campus university. The class schedules are designed over 2 semesters not 3. so its easy to travel back home on holidays. The accommodation is a quick walk to class. A campus university makes like all the better.There is the bonus of arriving from China and immediately feeling the safety of campus life rather than negotiating your surroundings in the middle of a strange city center. The scenery is amazing. There is a lake in the middle as a centerpiece to a backdrop of The Wallace Monument. The clean fresh air is great. The student support for international students is 100% focused and determined to help any incoming students. I loved every minute attending this university.

Best decision ever, I learned for life and had the time of my life!
The 1 major 2 subsidiary module for Stirling degree studies gave me a diversity and range of subjects across different fields- from arts to sciences - which would be hard to find elsewhere- something I still profit from today! Generally there was a very personal approach, tutors really knew their students and were therefore able to give them individual advice of where their strenghts lay and which points to work on.We were encouraged to develop and freely express our own views, while maintaining an objective view and listen to other opinions and theories. Special thanks to Richard Kilborn, Dr. John Izod, Dan Mac Loud, Mike Cormack, Otto Karolyi and a very special thanks to the staff of the ACCESS course without whom I would never have been there.
