Stirling Campus

Opened in 2012, our Stirling Campus focuses on Creative Industries, Tourism and Hospitality. The stunning views to the Wallace Monument, Stirling Castle and the Ochil Hills, enhance the creative process for our students and allow the trainees in our Gallery Training Restaurant to hone their craft in one of the most picturesque learning environments in Scotland.

The Stirling Campus is easily accessible by car, however, it has limited car parking facilities. There are excellent public transport services and an efficient Next Bike hire facility is available.
