Students outside the INTO building

INTO University of Stirling
postgraduate progression courses

We’ve teamed up with global education leader INTO University Partnerships to provide preparatory courses for international postgraduate students. These courses are designed for international students who have the potential to succeed, but do not yet meet the requirements for direct entry onto a postgraduate course at the University of Stirling.

Postgraduate Degree with Graduate Diploma

A full-time academic programme that incorporates English language skills development, academic study skills, postgraduate research skills and subject-specific content. If you successfully complete the programme and meet the required progression grades for entry to your selected degree course, you will be guaranteed entry onto designated postgraduate degree courses at the University of Stirling.

Graduate Diploma

A programme that leads to direct entry to postgraduate degree. It’s an ideal preparation course before studying at Masters level, or if you’re looking to upgrade your qualifications in a relevant subject. There are three pathways:

Pre-Masters programme

Our six-month programme provides a direct route to a wide variety of Masters courses at the University of Stirling. You will improve your English language skills, develop the necessary study and research skills, and become accustomed to living and studying in the UK in advance of your postgraduate degree.

Pre-sessional English language courses

Our pre-sessional English courses are designed for international students who are already academically qualified, but either need to increase their English language level for entry to their postgraduate course.  There are three, six and twelve week courses available.

My learning and study experience at INTO Stirling has been both challenging and rewarding. I feel that my teachers are experts in their fields, and they made me feel well-supported and professionally assisted over my entire journey here at INTO.
