Location


The conference was held at the University of Stirling.

Arrival by train/bus

Students can travel by either train or bus to Stirling Train Station. Free shuttle buses to the University will run continuously from 09:00 – 10:30 on day 1. Buses will pick students up from directly outside the train station and drop off near the Pathfoot Building at the University, where registration and the main conference sessions are located Committee members will be available at the train station to assist students with the shuttle buses.

For those arriving outwith those times, public transport is available from near the train station to the University, using bus numbers 54, 58, 62 or UL.
Note that while the university is located nearer to Bridge of Allan Train Station, there is almost no public transport service from there to the University.

Coach companies may offer direct-to-campus services from major towns and cities. In particular, Stagecoach service 23 may be of interest to those students travelling from St. Andrews.
