Part-time study options

Due to the flexible and modular nature of our degrees we offer a part-time study option for some undergraduate courses. Choose a flexible part-time course to fit around your other commitments and study at a pace to suit your lifestyle.

Studying your degree part-time

As a part-time student, you can progress at a pace which suits you, taking either one or two modules per semester and starting in September or January.

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. 

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.

Credit for previous qualifications

We award credit upon admission for certain qualifications you’ve gained before coming to Stirling. This could shorten the time it will take you to complete your degree.
