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 2017-18, Arletta Gorecka has been successfully selected to perform the role of the International Officer.

Arletta is a third-year LL.B Law Student, who comes from Poland. In her manifesto, she placed an emphasis on tackling the negative impact of prejudice and discrimination on students. Additionally, she believes in the importance of introducing a variety of events introducing the cultural background of the international students.

You can contact her by dropping an email to arg00010@students.stir.ac.uk

our international partners

Your Students' Union is always here to support you during your studies, even if you are only here on an exchange semester. Recently, we were delighted to host staff and students from the University of South Alabama who travelled to Stirling as part of our Global Student Leader Network collaboration!

our priorities

Our priorities for supporting the experience of international students here at Stirling include:

  • A meaningful and valuable Freshers Week & ReFreshers experience

Our 2017/18 Freshers' Week line up will have something for everyone and there's no better way to meet people and get ready for your time here at Stirling! If DJ sets aren't for you, then check out our traditional Scottish Ceilidh or meet with one of our societies.

Don't forget to visit the International Society during Clubs & Societies day, and get involved with their activities in Give it a Go Week!

  • Representing you during your studies

Stirling Students' Union is always on hand to represent you during your studies. Whatever it is which is affecting your studies you can contact Lynn Maher, our Advocacy and Inclusion Development Coordinator, on lynn.maher@stir.ac.uk

  • Developing cross-cultural links through volunteering

Volunteering is a huge part of our culture here at Stirling. This can be here on campus with our Environmental Projects team or leading Sports Clubs or Societies, but also extends to the local community of Stirling and further afield. For more information about volunteering, check the Volunteering Webpage or contact alban.dickson@stir.ac.uk

international welcome

Don't forget that International Students are also invited to the Univeristy's Welcome session on the 12th September 2017, held in the Students Union! For more information, please visit this page here.
