Students from the UK, EU and overseas countries can all apply via UCAS. If you’re applying for a transfer, deferring your entry for a year, or applying for advanced entry you’ll also apply via UCAS.
If you’re applying to more than one university, we don’t see who the other universities are, until the other universities have made their decisions. We make our decision on your application without knowledge of your other choices.
We're now open for UCAS Clearing 2018! We've a limited number of places available.
You can apply for up to five courses on your application – there’s no need to rank your choices, as universities don’t see your other choices. You don’t need to use all five choices and you can apply for several courses at the same university. UCAS has detailed advice on how to fill out your application along with tips for International and EU applicants.
Submit your UCAS application using the correct UCAS codes by the appropriate deadline. Our UCAS name is STIRL and our UCAS institution code is S75. UCAS course codes are found on our course pages.
You must pay UCAS a fee of £24 for up to five course choices or £13 for one course.
Track your application online using UCAS Track and see any offers as soon as they’re made.
You’ll also get access to our Applicant Portal within a few days of submitting your application. Here you can apply for accommodation and upload any additional documents we might need.
A couple of our courses have additional steps in the application process.
If you’re applying for a Nursing course, you’ll need to attend a compulsory applicant day that includes an informal interview. Find out more on the Adult Nursing course page or the Mental Health Nursing page.
