Scotland’s undergraduate degree structure gives you the opportunity to try new subjects and even change the focus of your degree programme during your first two years of study. At Stirling, you have even greater flexibility as you are not restricted to a single department or School and can combine subjects from different areas, for example; Film & Media and Environmental Science, French and Psychology.
Undergraduate degree programmes at Stirling are typically four years (eight semesters) long. This is to allow you to mature into your study and gain excellent skills and gain a breadth of knowledge. While you can graduate with a General degree after three years of study, most students continue on to a fourth year of study to complete an Honours degree.
Typically, you will have the opportunity to take up to three subjects in your first year and maintain this breadth of study until the end of semester 3, when you will start to specialise in your chosen area of study. During your fourth year of study, you will undertake specialised work within your chosen subject(s). At Stirling, the academic year normally starts in September of each year and you can find information about semester dates here.
Taught full-time postgraduate master programmes are typically one full calendar year long and at Stirling normally start in September. There are a number of different types of master programmes available, namely: MRES, MBA, MEdu, MLitt, MSc, MA. You can find full details of the differences in these programmes here.
Research postgraduate degrees typically take three or four years to complete. Initially, most research students will undertake a period of supervision and training of not more than 10 months for full-time students or 15 months for part-time students. During this period candidates for research degrees will be registered as research students of the University. Progress will be monitored and at the end of the initial period the appropriate school will decide apon the appropriate progression route.

Stirling combines the charm of an historic destination with the buzz of a contemporary city. There’s truly something for everyone, much of it aimed directly at students.
