Clubs and social environment

Please tell us more about the social environment, sports clubs and societies and anything else you think candidates need to know about life at your university.


"A huge range of sports clubs is available at Stirling including underwater hockey, surfing, snowboarding, horse riding, mountain biking, powerlifting, touch rugby, triathlon, boxing, Muay Thai, rowing, American football, Gaelic football, women's rugby and men's football. You name it and Stirling has got it. If it hasn't, get ten people and you've got a new club, Quidditch for example. The societies are very well organised and a safe space to meet with your friends and express your values. The LGBTQ+ community and the Christian Union are also very inclusive and it really makes Stirling feel like a welcoming and friendly environment."
