About the institution
The main 330-acre University of Stirling campus is two miles from the centre of Stirling and comprises a loch, a golf-course and the 18th century Airthrey Castle. It has two other campuses in Inverness and Stornoway that specialise in nursing and midwifery. The university offers a mixture of vocationally focused and more traditional academic subjects. Undergraduates at Stirling study several subjects in their first two years before deciding what to specialise in for their final two years.
