Joint courses with Forth Valley College | UCAS Extra and Clearing Places available 2018

The University of Stirling and Forth Valley College have teamed up to deliver four innovative courses taught on both the college's nearby Falkirk and Stirling campuses, as well as the University's campus.

Each course combines the applied technical knowledge of Forth Valley College with the advanced academic training and expertise of the University. You'll spend the first two years studying at the college and the final two studying at the University of Stirling campus, with full support and use of facilities available from both institutions across the duration of your course – and if you're ready to start in 2018, we've saved a place for you!

We are accepting new applications until 30 June 2018 via UCAS. And if you have already applied via UCAS but don't yet hold an offer, we're still accepting applications for our joint degree courses until 30 June 2018 via UCAS Extra.

UCAS Extra is now open – and the process is fast and simple.
