Come and see what it's like
We can arrange individual visits for you and a friend, adviser or parent/guardian to let you see the campus, find out more about what we offer, and answer any questions you have. You might want to find out more about a particular subject, get advice about your qualifications or find out what specific support you could receive.
You'll meet with a member of our recruitment team and also talk to one of our care experienced student ambassadors. If we can, we'll also get you to meet with an academic from your subject area so you can find out more about the degree you're interested in.
All you have to do is get in touch and we'll do the rest.
Open Day / Offer Holder Day
Open Days are a great way to find out more about everything to do with university life. A range of information desks are available where you can speak to University staff, academics, and current students. We've a dedicated information stand manned by our widening participation staff who can help you get the most out of the day. You can also talk to some of our care experienced student ambassadors to find out more about their experiences.
If you've been made an offer then you'll be invited to an Offer Holder Day. These are really useful for you and your family and friends even if you live locally or have visited the University campus before. They give you time to ask staff and students about what it is like to study at Stirling and lets you find out all you need to know about the next steps in the application process.
If you're coming on your own to either of these events, or are unsure of what to do on the day, get in touch once you've registered online and we'll make sure you get the most out of your visit.
What applicant support can I get?
Pre-application and transition support
Our advisers will provide information, advice and guidance to anyone interested in applying to university.

This might be help throughout the application process, coming to university how to manage your first weeks on campus - or anything else you have questions about.

Actually the atmosphere on campus is warm and friendly and everyone is there to help you get the most out of the day. If you want advice on how to get the best out of the day, or even someone to help guide you, all you have to do is register for the event and then get in touch with our advisers.
