A globally connected institution

How can I visit the University?

It is not only the location that draws students and their families to the university. We also offer a programme of study of unrivalled flexibility and choice, based around a semester system. It is possible to start on one degree programme and graduate in an entirely different subject, something about half of our students take advantage of.

But don't just take our word for it. Here at the University of Stirling, we feel it is very important that if you are considering studying at Stirling you should visit the campus to see for yourself what is on offer. These pages provide information on the range of opportunities to come and visit the campus, including open days, talks and tours, applicant days and self-guided visits.

Can't get to the campus? Then you can take a virtual tour: View our videos and virtual tours of the University of Stirling Campus.

Open Days

These are days when school pupils, college students, parents, teachers, careers advisers and anyone else interested in studying at the University of Stirling are welcome to come and visit. We hold tours of the campus, offer presentations, talks and displays. A range of information desks are also available where you can speak to University staff, academics, and current students.

Applicant Days

Applicant days are for those who have applied to the University and, once we have received your application from UCAS, you will be invited to attend one of these events.

Visit Afternoons

Our visit afternoons run throughout the year and are a fantastic opportunity for those thinking of applying to the University of Stirling.

Talk and tour

If you are unable to attend any of the scheduled visit days, but still wish to visit the campus, please contact the Student Recruitment & Admissions Service.
