Introduction:
Stirling is one of Britain’s great historic cities, located in central Scotland, only 45 minutes away from both Glasgow and Edinburgh. It has a magnificent medieval castle, a charming city center, and is surrounded by the unspoiled natural beauty of Scotland’s mountains, rivers and lochs (lakes), but also offers all the amenities of a modern city, such as shopping, the performing arts and nightlife. The University of Stirling was founded in 1967 and has 9500 students. The 310-acre campus is ten minutes by bus from the city center, and has its own 18th century castle, loch, and golf course.
