Access courses

The University of Stirling is a long-standing member of the Scottish Wider Access Partnership (SWAP) and works across the East and West regions to support students throughout the application process.


Applications from students on courses approved by SWAP East and SWAP West are warmly welcomed. Entry requirements differ depending on what degree you want to apply to and what course you are currently studying. You should consult the relevant SWAP progression routes documentation in consultation with your lecturer to find out more.

All students on the University of Stirling Access programme are guaranteed a place at the University as long as you successfully complete your programme with the minimum entry requirements. Please note that your first subject of choice may not always be offered. If we feel you are not quite ready for full-time study you may be offered part-time entry initially.

If you are not on an approved SWAP access course, we recommend that you get in touch with the College Liaison Manager to find out what your options are.
