Application forms

Applying to the University of Stirling as a study abroad or exchange student is very simple.


All you have to do is complete the application form and send it, with the required supporting documents, by email to  Please send one email, with the supporting documents as one single attachment.  We ask that you do not submit your application until you have all of the required supporting documents.

You need to include the courses (modules) you would like to take. A link to our course catalogue is provided below. We ask that students put alternative module choices on their application forms, using all spaces provided. Just in case your first choice isn’t available.

Once all of your application materials have been received, you will then receive a letter offering you admission and listing your pre-approved modules. This will usually happen within three weeks of receipt of your application. You are then required to return your acceptance form, and we will register you for your chosen modules then send you further information about enrolment and housing.

Applicants should note that all students, at the time of their admission to the University, require to be sufficiently fluent in the English language to be able to derive maximum benefit from courses taught in that language. It is necessary, therefore, for those whose first language is not English to demonstrate a measure of English language ability.

Students from the EU/EEA/Switzerland, including students through Erasmus student exchange agreements should prove their English language ability in one of the following ways:

  1. include in an applicant’s reference letter an attestation that their English language level is suitable to carry out the academic programme to which the applicant has applied; or
  2. evidence of having passed one of the approved tests on our English Language Qualifications List; or
  3. evidence that your primary university subject of study is English.


Students from outside of the EU/EEA and whose native language is not English must provide evidence of having passed one of the approved tests at CEFR Level B2 or above on our English Language Qualifications List.

Students from outside of the EU/EEA who’s native English speaking countries do not need to provide evidence of their English language ability unless requested.

Don't forget to note the dates and deadlines on the right side of the webpage for more information. Application forms must be received by the published deadline.
