SWAP access courses for mature students

A lot of our mature students study an access course before coming to university. Access courses are designed specifically for anyone who has been out of education for a while and has few or no formal qualifications.

The University of Stirling is a long-standing member of the Scottish Wider Access Programme (SWAP) and works across the East and West regions to support students in any way we can.

There's a SWAP route into every one of our undergraduate degrees. They're all listed in the SWAP progression routes documentation. Talk to your lecturer or SWAP office to find out more. Alternatively get in touch with Tracey Kerr, our Widening Participation Manager who is happy to help out.

There's more advice and details of the kind of support you can get on our mature student pages.

Now in his 40s, Paul joined the University nearly a decade ago through the Access to Higher Education programme, which helps mature students who have been out of education for a time to gain entry to a degree course.
