Flexible undergraduate degrees

Do you know exactly what you’d like to study at university? Are you still trying figure out your options? At the University of Stirling, our flexible undergraduate degrees put you in control of developing your education.

You can try out all sorts of new subjects, combine the ones that interest you or even change your mind about what you’d like to graduate in. This flexibility is available on many of our courses, while other more vocational degrees that are aimed at specific careers (e.g. nursing, paramedic science, social work, education) do not follow the flexible structure.

Our undergraduate degree structure

Our undergraduate degrees are based on modules. See how you'll be taught and assessed, and how you earn degree credits.

Part-time study

You can study many of our undergraduate courses part-time. As a part-time student, you can progress at a pace which suits you – taking either one or two modules at a time and starting in September or January.

Widening participation

The University of Stirling is committed to enabling students from all backgrounds to achieve their full potential. We believe that everyone has the potential to succeed and actively encourage applications from non-traditional groups. There are a number of routes to degree study available depending on your background and what you want to study.

Access courses

Our Access Courses are for anyone who wants to study an undergraduate degree course, but have few or no formal qualifications or have been out of full-time education for more than three years. Successful completion of the course guarantees a place on a number of degree courses at the University of Stirling.
