Course Summary:
However you carry out out everyday functions like cooking, driving or watching television, you are interacting with computers. Our course teaches you the theory and practice of designing, building and analysing such systems and your training will encompass how computers work – programming them to follow our instructions and learning how they fit into their environment. Computing Science courses at Stirling equip you with knowledge of the wide use of computers in business, industry and for personal use. Built around a core of software engineering and development you will learn about Computer Security and Forensics, Artificial Intelligence, Computer Games and Mobile Phone App development, amongst other topics. From day one you will study the broad concerns of computing science: not only how to program computers (in Java) but ‘computational thinking’, the usability and accessibility of user interfaces, and social and professional issues. In your Honours year you will have the chance to pick a number of optional topics, which are regularly updated to be at the cutting edge of computing. These options are often related to research being done at Stirling. Do you enjoy numbers the way others enjoy music, poetry or art? Mathematical training develops both specific skills and broad analytical expertise, which are valued across all professions; and there is a particular demand for graduates who not only have quantitative skills, but also know how to use them. Our courses deliver that sought-after combination – both through our teaching style and our focus on real-world applications of both mathematical and statistical techniques. For instance, you will use the mathematics computing laboratories as an integral part of your learning process, making your study as much experimental as theoretical. Our Mathematics and Statistics department provides a stimulating and supportive learning environment and we have a strong and active research group. Its major interest is the application of mathematics to biology, economics and life sciences, and we offer combined Honours degrees in the relevant disciplines. The opportunity to work with young adults to help them fulfil their potential must surely rank as one of the most important and influential roles anyone can take up as a career. What are the complex processes that underpin both learning and teaching within classrooms and other ‘learning spaces’? How can we use expert knowledge and developed experience of these processes to maximise the quality of education experienced by all our young people? Choosing to study Secondary Education at Stirling will involve exploring these and other core pedagogical beliefs, issues and practices and lead to one of the most rewarding and challenging career choices available to any graduate. You will usually follow eight semesters (four years) which leads to an Honours degree in the chosen teaching subject(s) and Professional Education. Alternatively, seven semesters (three and a half years) lead either to a General degree, or to a Bachelor’s degree in Professional Education. General degree students may only be able to qualify in one teaching subject.

The campus is seriously beautiful, in the heart of Scotland, and the city has so much in it for students, you'll never be bored. Two words – Dusk Mondays… There’s a few good clubs, but it’s mostly a peaceful town. Some people swear by joining a sports team, but Pub Golf was as athletic as I got. My lecturers are very helpful, friendly and knowledgeable, and we get plenty of support and feedback from them. They also coordinate a lot of internships and placements for students, which are really great for helping.
