Events for college students

We run a number of events throughout the year to support college students at every stage of the application process. Whether you are considering going to university and want to find out more about what the University of Stirling can offer, or you already have a place with us there is something to help you on your journey.

Thinking about university?

If you are thinking about university and would like to find out more about what the University of Stirling can offer you then we're here to help.

Why not come and see us? The best way to get the most out of a visit is to come to one of our Open Days. We run an information session specifically for college students and have a dedicated information stand so you can talk to our college advisers in person. We hold tours of the campus, offer presentations, talks and displays. A range of information desks are also available where you can speak to University staff, academics, and current students.

If you can't come to an Open Day and a few of your classmates want to come along too then we could arrange a group visit for you. Alternatively we can come to see you. We go to a number of different careers fairs in colleges across Scotland, and we are also happy to come and talk to your class. Just ask your lecturer to get in touch with Tracey Kerr, the Widening Participation Manager, and we can sort something out.

When you have been made an offer

If you've been made an offer then you will be invited to an Applicant 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.

Even if you've already visited the campus before, you might have loads of new questions to ask. That’s why our Applicant Days have been specially designed to give you valuable time with academic staff and students as well as the chance to see our range of accommodation and support services.

*Please note: Nurses have to attend an interview, which is different to the Applicant Days. Please don't get them confused as offers are based upon your interview as well as your application. Further information is sent directly to you by our admissions team.
