As a part-time student, you can progress at a pace which suits you – taking either one or two modules at a time and starting in September or January. Most part-time students can achieve their degree in five years, although you can take longer if you wish.
Part-time students will join full-time students in undergraduate classes, with one module of study generally requiring a minimum of three separate one hour sessions each week. You’ll have the option of taking one or two modules per semester.
As well as attending classes, students are expected to undertake independent study for each module. On average, students are expected to study three hours for every hour in the classroom researching coursework.
To achieve Honours level, most students will have to study on a full-time basis towards the end of their course. Final year dissertations require full-time study, and many specific Honours modules are only available during the day.
You can ask us a question about part-time study. We welcome enquiries from anyone interested in studying at the University of Stirling – whatever your age or background. Applications should be made directly to the University, and not through UCAS.
