Pretty good uni

4.0/5
Overall
The course I am doing, applied computing, is  a very good course because it is done in partnership with Forth Valley College. The college has Oracle certification and provides Oracle approved training in Java and mySQL. After finishing the studies in Forth Valley College, students gain the title of Junior Programmer, which is a very useful thing going forward. 
The campus of the university is great, it is very beautiful. The university buildings are close to each other and are easy to find. 
The labs however are not as good as the Forth Valley ones, due to the equipment being older and not having a secondary screen. 
Teachers are very nice and helpful though, and if any issues arise they can help anyone.

University of Stirling
4.0/5
Overall
You get to understand where the laws you apply in your home country originate from. There is a better understanding of how to think and apply the laws in another legal system.

The courses are diverse and give you the opportunity to study courses you did not have the opportunity to do so in your home university.
In addition, you get to meet new people and improve your communication skills with strangers and possible customers.

3.8/5
Overall
Personal recommendation
I think the university of Stirling (at least concerning the course I followed: MSc in Public Relations) was a serious one, and I was not disappointed by the quality of the lectures. I do not know about the other departments and courses in that university. It is always a bit strange to be confronted with different teaching methods than those we foreigners have been used to in our home countries, but it is a worthful challenge anyway to try to cope with it.

Personal recommendation
University of Stirling has a wonderful program for broadcast students in Britain. Great experience for a person of different culture to learn more about communications/media in a different country. The teacher to student ratio was much better than my large home university.

ABOUT
The university is located in central Scotland, 30 miles from Glasgow and 40 from Edinburgh. The campus is a 30 acre parkland, a loch at its centre, wooded hills behind. Founded in 1967, it was inspired by the US liberal arts system, introducing semesters to Britain and basing its structure on an interdisciplinary model.
