    Not at all strict. They might at some point in the year go in a few rooms and leave a note saying stuff should be PAT tested but there will be no follow up to this and their even checking once is highly unlikely.

    You'd need to check various league tables to decide if it is 'good' but of my friends who study biology, none of them seems to have had a bad experience.

    What is the teaching timetable as I have generated my other timetable (with the module codes) and then clicked on another link which gave me a complete different timetable. Heres the link http://www.aro.stir.ac.uk/academic/t...main-mwoug.php.
    Is that to do with students and if so how do we use it and how does it differ from the other one that i generated with the module codes.
    Thanks

    The one you used is the timetable generator. It takes your modules, and generates a timetable for you based on the information in the teaching timetable (the one you linked to). They're one and the same, it's just the teaching timetable shows the whole timetable for each academic department - so on the one you linked to, you're looking at the timetable for the entire management department.

    If you look at the teaching timetable, you'll be able to see the seminar times available to you, even though you can't choose them yet

    In Lyon Crescent there's no restriction on who you can have staying over. All you probably need is to check that your flatmates are ok with you having visitors.

Does anyone know of any flats or anywhere to stay because halls is full. I am willing to share with others? Or can anyone help me with people who are 1 person short to make a group to move into a house or flat? Thanks Michael!

    The university has an obligation to offer you accommodation somewhere, campus is full but they will still be able to find you a place in one of their off campus residences.

    If you do want to sort out your own accommodation then you should try the property site run by the students' union, Stirling Digs. Also try gumtree as there are lots of people seeking a final flatmate on there, spare room websites may be of some use though they tend to be for professionals rather than students. Finally, if you would like to live on your own then search for one bedroom flats on rightmove.

    1 seminar per module, you can see all the seminar choices available on the teaching timetable [module code.S(a,b,c...)].http://www.aro.stir.ac.uk/academic/timetables/main/timetables-main-law.php

    I've not heard many complaints but from personal experience, I've always found the O2 network as good as can be expected.

    Regardless of network, the nature of the buildings and the large number of people using mobile phones in the area so lots of different signals colliding means you don't get great coverage wherever you are indoors.
