Many of your teachers at INTO Stirling have lived and worked abroad – so have been in a similar situation as you coming to a new country. This is why they are the perfect people to teach you during your INTO program.

Your teachers will help you grow your confidence in academic subjects and the English language from your very first class, ensuring that you’re well equipped to get the best out of your course.

By the time you progress to university, your teachers will make sure that you’ve had the best learning experience that they can provide. This experience will include:

  • modern classrooms equipped with interactive whiteboards
  • university-style approach to teaching subjects, including group discussions
  • small class sizes of no more than 17 students for English language teaching.

During your orientation week, you will be introduced to your Personal Tutor who will be your first point of contact if you need guidance. Your Personal Tutor will be there for you if you need to talk through any problems, whether they’re academic or personal, and will be able to help you resolve issues and provide advice. They will also:

  • meet with you for tutorials throughout the year
  • help you to settle into the academic community
  • communicate your academic progress and provide you with guidance
  • be available to meet during set office hours or by appointment
  • refer you to appropriate sources of academic or welfare support.

Other academic support in the INTO Center includes:

  • language advisers to help you with English
  • online support
  • revision sessions
  • one-to-one teaching upon request.
