Study Abroad: how to apply

You can apply today, and the process couldn’t be easier. Simply complete our application form below and send it, along with your supporting documents to study-abroad@stir.ac.uk. You must be currently enrolled at a higher education institution as an undergraduate to apply. We recommend that you download the application form before filling it in.

Applications for spring 2020 are now closed

On the application form, we ask you to choose the modules you’d like to study and reserve choices. Your reserve module choices will only be used if there’s no space availability on your preferred choices.

If you’re coming through an exchange programme such as Erasmus+, you need to be nominated by the Study Abroad Office at your home university in order to apply.

Are you from the USA, Australia, New Zealand or Norway?

You can apply through one of our study abroad providers instead of applying directly to us. See who are study abroad providers are.

Supporting documents

In addition to your completed Study Abroad Application form, you’ll also need:

  • your most recent transcript from your home university
  • a copy of your passport picture page
  • an academic recommendation
  • in some cases, evidence of English language ability is required. See our English language requirements.

Application deadlines

  • 1 April for September (Semester 1) entry or full-year applications
  • 15 October for January (Semester 2) entry applications

What happens next?

An email will be sent to successful applicants with further information, including a guide to applying for accommodation and registering for modules (courses). We'll also send you our Study Abroad Student Handbook, which includes a guide for applying for accommodation.
