Support for Ukrainian students
Applications for full-time study
Following the announcement of the Scottish Government on 14 April 2022, Ukrainians wishing to embark on an undergraduate or postgraduate (Masters) course in a Scottish University from the academic year 2023-24 will be eligible for free tuition and living cost support, provided they have settled in Scotland through the "Homes for Ukraine", "Ukraine Family" or the "Ukraine Extension" schemes.
Students should apply for a place on a course at the University through the undergraduate application route or the postgraduate application route and meet the entry academic and language criteria for their chosen course of study.
To be eligible for SAAS funding, applicants should be ordinarily resident in Scotland at the time of applying for student support. Further information on eligibility criteria and the application process is available from the Student Awards Agency Scotland website.
Transfers onto full-time study
Students who started degrees at a Ukrainian university and had their studies interrupted by the war may be able to complete their studies by transferring to a course that matches their original programme. Students will need to meet the entry criteria for the course and demonstrate that they possess the level of prior knowledge required for advanced entry. Enquiries can be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org
Students transferring onto courses from autumn 2023 may be eligible for free tuition and living cost support through the Student Awards Agency Scotland.
Doctoral and dissertation students
Doctoral students whose research has been interrupted by the war may be eligible to apply for our CARA fellowship. Students should ensure that their research has a demonstrable, clear relationship with the areas of expertise at the University of Stirling. Please contact CARA in the first instance.
The University of Stirling is happy to offer informal academic supervision and guidance, and access to the University’s learning resources to Ukrainian students who need to complete independent projects or dissertations as part of their studies, and whose areas of research align with those of our academic staff. Students do not need to be physically present in Stirling to avail themselves of this support. Please get in touch by completing our request form:
