Results day

Your results are in! All the waiting is done and you’ll find out if you’ve got the results you need.

Do I need to send you my results?

You shouldn’t need to send us your results if they are in the list below. We normally receive an electronic copy of your results automatically through UCAS for:

  • SQA Highers and/or Advanced Highers
  • GCE A-levels  (if studied at a UK-based school or college)
  • Irish Leaving Certificate
  • Welsh Baccalaureate
  • BTEC qualifications
  • International Baccalaureate (IB)

Please note that for BTEC and IB qualifications there may be instances where you have to send your results to us.

You do need to send us your results if you’ve studied a different qualification such as:

  • Cambridge International Examinations (CIE)
  • Advanced Diploma and Progression Diploma

If you have different qualifications, or are studying outside the UK, you need to send us your results directly. Please send us an official copy of your results to our Admissions team as soon as you receive them, using your My Portal account, or by email to

If we don’t receive your results by 31st August please note that we're under no obligation to accept you onto a course.

What to do next?

Got the right grades?

If you meet all your offer conditions we’ll send confirmation to UCAS of your place and you’ll be notified via UCAS Hub. If you have applied directly or via the Common Application you’ll be notified directly by our Admissions team.

We’ll then send you a letter with your next steps, including important information on the online enrolment process, registering for your course modules and practical arrangements for the start of semester.

Congratulations - Welcome to the University of Stirling!

Go to our induction site giving you lots of helpful information about Stirling and what you need to think about before coming to university.

Grades lower than expected?

If you do not meet your offer conditions, we’ll review your application again before making a final decision. We’ll look at your personal statement, reference, past academic performance, and any other relevant information that we’ve been made aware of. We aim to make a final decision in time for Results Day.

If you don’t receive an offer from us, we’ll let UCAS know. UCAS then let your second choice university consider your exam results.


No offers? Or decided to decline your offers? You can try to find another course to study via UCAS Clearing. Alternatively, you could consider taking a gap year, an apprenticeship or studying at college. Many college courses have the option of transferring to university after a required period of study. If you're coming from college take a look at our information for college students.

Any places available at the University of Stirling through Clearing will be advertised on our website in August, ahead of the SQA Higher and A-level results.
