International students number around 20 per cent of the whole and represent more than 120 nationalities between them.

The main Stirling campus also benefits from a wide range of restaurants and cafes, a 50 metre swimming pool, a publicly accessible art collection and the Macrobert Arts Centre comprising a theatre, cinema and bars. The centre of Stirling, just a ten minute bus ride away, is a compact city that maintains a strong community feel.
