'Speak English at all times' university tells students
Signs were put up around Airthrey Castle at the University of Stirling.
A Scottish university has put up signs telling students to "speak English at all times".
They were posted inside a building used by international students at the University of Stirling.
The signs read: "Please speak English at all times when in the castle," with "speak English" highlighted.
Stirling University said the Airthrey Castle signs were intended to encourage overseas students to practise their English.
The castle is used by students participating in INTO Stirling, which supports those studying abroad.
It offers degrees in business, finance, media and computing, as well as English-language courses.
A university spokesman said: "We encourage INTO students to speak English whenever possible, as it has been shown that this is the most effective way to help them to improve their language skills in order to meet their English requirements, so that they can progress to a wide range of undergraduate and postgraduate degree options."
