An experience of lifetime at the University of Stirling
Tips: The university provides around 4000 pounds scholarship to Indian students to support with the application. It was a wonderful experience being a part of the University and travelling to Scotland. Different culture, yet very accepting and welcoming apart from the sightseeing you can do a lot in Scotland.
Likes (Quality of faculty): Faculty members are approachable and very well learned. You get to learn a lot from them if you keep yourself active. Teaching was a mix of theoretical and practical learning with real-life examples and workshops. Professors are from across the globe thus showing that University of Stirling is a diverse employer.
Dislikes (Permanent Immigration): Permanent settlement depends on individuals and if you get a job of choice. There are many students who prefer to come back to their home country after graduation. And those who prefer to stay either go for sponsorship from the companies or sponsor themselves for at least couple of years (Graduate Route Visa). I preferred to return back to India to be around my people.

Best study destination for international students
Tips: There is a bit problem with part time jobs in Stirling but with time you can find one. Otherwise, it's the best study destination for international students. Faculties are always ready to help. Personal tutors are assigned to each and every student so that one can have a buddy available every time for help.
Likes (Student Life): The atmosphere here at the university of Stirling is amazing. And all the relevant facilities are available around the campus. Personal tutors are assigned to each and every student so that one can have a buddy available to solve all the problems. The most important sports facilities are amazing here at Stirling.
Dislikes (Value for money): Until you don't have a job in the UK it's expensive to spend Indian money in pounds. Finding part-time jobs is quite difficult in starting but if you keep pushing it and have a clear vision you will get a job for sure. Don't hesitate in doing any work rather accept it as a challenge and overcome it.

Excellent faculty but fewer part-time jobs.
Tips: The transition after coming here was quite difficult as I was not familiar with the climate. The people were quite good and polite. As of now, everything is going well. Finally, the University is good for sports and the gym at the university is an advantage for us.
Likes (Quality of faculty): The faculty at this University are quite good at teaching and are experts in their field of subjects. Moreover, their experiences and knowledge of the subjects make it easy for students to understand the topic. The majority of faculty at this University are Scottish people. More than 95% of staff are from Scotland.
Dislikes (Part time work): The part-time jobs are fewer or I can say difficult to get one as it is a small city. The city doesn't even have the size of Mysore. The population in this city is also very low. Managing a part-time job and university education is quite challenging as we have classes four days a week. The tight timetable is also an issue to the part time job.

Reputed college with good reviews
Tips: College is quite good but students who are really studious and keen to learn should opt for this university. As assignments provided are really of master's level and you will learn a lot if you are serious about your career. Please book your hostel accommodation in advance. Commutation from Stirling to Glasgow, Stirling to Edinburgh is affordable and less time consuming. Overall good college.

University of Stirling has a beautiful campus with all the facilities for sports and fitness.
Tips: The cultural shifts are quite ok and not a big deal. But the issue is managing the expenses and finding a part time job is really harder. Moreover, the timetable at this university is little stressful. So, it will become harder again to get a part time job and lastly the attendance are important to successfully complete the masters.
Likes (Quality of faculty): All the faculties at the university are well qualified and have experience. Good learning experience as the teachers are good at teaching. Faculties at this university is really helpful in preparation of assignments and they guide you to prepare the assignments and conduct seminars.
Dislikes (Part time work): Getting a part time job opportunity in Stirling is difficult and also an on campus opportunity will be extremely difficult. It's a small city or you can say it's a village and the city depends on the university. Managing the part time job and student life is stressful. Even getting a part time job is a luck. It's not a big city to find more part time job opportunities. Working far away and traveling to the workplace is an another hurdle as it's expensive. Can't manage the expenses.
