Available courses

The BA (Hons) in Heritage and Tourism integrates both practical work and project experience with skills development and business management awareness to meet the academic requirements of an honours degree programme. The first two years of the undergraduate programme will be delivered by Forth Valley College from its new Stirling Campus at East Kildean, on the outskirts of Stirling. Students will then progress onto the University of Stirling for years three and four. The programme is supported by organisations such as Historic Scotland and Visit Scotland to produce highly skilled graduates for entry into the Scottish Tourism, Conservation and Heritage Industries.

The BSc (Hons) Applied Biological Sciences offers training in areas such as animal and plant biology and biotechnology. Much of the focus is on cellular and molecular aspects, with particular emphasis on the development of practical skills. The degree has also been developed with input from the Scottish Life Sciences employers’ community who recognise the need for highly skilled graduates. This degree will particularly appeal to those with a desire to develop a career in the biosciences industries, within healthcare and in biotechnology. Students will spent the first two years primarily based at Forth Valley College’s campus in Falkirk – then complete studies at the University in Stirling.
