international students

The Students’ Union values the representation of international students throughout their education. As a result, every year, students elect an International Officer. For the academic year 2020-21, Dimitrios Terzis has been successfully selected in the role of the International Officer.

Dimitriois a Greek student who is involved in many societies such as Debating and the founding and continuation of the Hellenic & Cypriot society.  Check out our Clubs & Societies here, it really is the best way to meet new people.  

He wants to help international students, exchange and full-time, to feel like Stirling can be their home. He has plans for meet & greets and aims to keep all studnets as up to date as possible on the University's response to COVID-19 and Brexit. He'd love to hear from you so feel free to drop him an email at dit000015@students.stir.ac.uk
