STEER peer support

Your Students' Union is delighted to continue to provide STEER for 2020/21. STEER is a University-wide peer support scheme linking in returning student "Captains" with new undergraduate or taught post-graduate "Crew" during their first year at Stirling. Whether based overseas, here for a semester abroad or starting an undergrad or postgrad, our Captains can help everyone with the transition of settling in to life at the University of Stirling.  

The scheme aims to help students make the most of their time at the University, help new students - the Crew - settle in and realise the opportunities available to them.

Students can sign up as Crew at any time during their first year, but we encourage applications as early as possible so you can make the most of your Captain’s experience!

All Captains are volunteers who are recruited, trained and supported by the Students' Union. In fact, many Captains were once Crew themselves!

This year it is more important than ever for incoming students to feel supported and able make early connections online with their campus community and who better than our fantastic current students? 

If you are commencing studies soon and are looking for some guidance and support to ensure that you settle into Stirling as well as possible then sign up today and we'll match you up with a Captain:

Graduated STEER Captains (always Stirling)!

We understand that a lot of people who were once STEER Captains want to keep connected with their campus community and we very much encourage this and want to hear from you.  For this reason, alongside the Advancement team we've set up a STEER Captains group on The Stirling Network.  The Stirling Network is a fantastic resource which provides many opportunities to current Stirling students and graduates alike.
