Overview

Bringing together theory and practice, our Film and Media course draws from the University of Stirling’s legacy as a pioneer in Film and Media research and teaching.

This course not only ensures you’re well-versed in theoretical and critical aspects of the subject area, but also have the opportunity to become fully trained in practicalities such as audio production, video editing, scriptwriting and more. Our emphasis on all-round training means you’ll graduate ready to follow in the footsteps of previous Stirling students who have forged successful careers in a range of media roles – from broadcasting and publishing, to advertising and public relations

Their award-winning Psychology course sits at the cutting edge of inter-disciplinary scientific research. They focus on important societal problems such as detection of criminals and improvement of health outcomes. After introducing Psychology to you as a biological and social science, they’ll cover topics as diverse as brain functioning, development and social behaviour. You’ll develop a deep knowledge and understanding of mind and behaviour.

Their course was recognised by the British Psychological Society for their innovative, student-led teaching initiatives and commitment to integrating employability. They described their course as being ‘at the forefront of the student-led teaching experience in Psychology across the UK’, and commended their staff, who ‘clearly care about the wellbeing and development of their students, and provide a nurturing learning environment’.
