HOST INSTITUTION: The University of Stirling was named Scottish University of the year for 2009/10. It is a comprehensive university similar in size to SU with just over 8000 undergraduates and 3000 graduate students. Nestled in the heart of Scotland, where the highlands and the lowlands meet, Stirling is ideally located approximately 30 miles from Glasgow and Edinburgh. The city of Stirling is an historic college town with a population of around 40,000, also very comparable to Salisbury. The campus is a combination of old world charm – with the historic 18th century Airthrey Castle located at its very heart – and modern conveniences including a 9-hole golf course, a small shopping mall, bars and a nightclub all located right on campus.
