We offer a variety of scholarship and funding options to help you finance your studies at the University of Stirling.
Graduate careers in Nursing
Our Nursing courses will prepare you for a modern profession, and provide the best possible patient care in a range of settings. Some of our nursing graduates focus on practice - consolidating their learning by working in roles such as a staff nurse in a hospital, community setting or care home - while others progress to postgraduate studies. These experiences can develop a career pathway, leading to specialised areas such as palliative care or advanced nurse practitioner roles.
Nursing graduates mostly find roles within the NHS, while others have found employment in other areas of the public sector-as well as with private healthcare providers and the voluntary sector.

We work with NHS Forth Valley to ensure that our courses remain clinically excellent and that you’ll receive the best possible practical training.
