Students that have completed the West African Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE) may be considered for direct entry to Yr1 of undergraduate degrees at the University of Stirling with an overall grade of B2 or higher.

If English isn't your first language, you'll need to demonstrate a minimum level of English language proficiency. We accept a variety of tests, details of the minimum grades we require can be found on our English Language Requirements page.
Please also check the specific grades required for your chosen course by checking our individual course pages.
Students from Ghana are not normally required to take an IELTS test in order to study at Stirling. It is a UK visa requirement that all international students must submit some proof of the English Language ability, regardless of whether English is their first language or not, but we can usually accept a student’s WASSCE English Language qualification to fulfil this requirement, provided they have achieved a C6 grade or higher. Some academic departments may request additional evidence of English-language proficiency, particularly where a WASSCE qualification is more than 5 years old. Additional evidence may include proof that students have studied at a university where English is the main language of instruction, or that they have worked in an English-speaking environment. We require an official letter from your University or College.
