Equal opportunities: fair admissions

In accordance with its Charter, the University's applications for admission to all programmes are assessed in accordance with the University's equality and diversity commitments and obligations as set out in its Single Equality Scheme and in line with the latest professional guidance.


Disability/special needs are not usually a bar to entry on programmes, but applicants are encouraged to fully declare these at an early stage so that any special arrangements are made before you join us.

For students joining the nursing and midwifery profession you should read the guidance on: www.nmc-uk.org

Past criminal convictions should also be declared. This is particularly relevant for those applying to Nursing and Midwifery, Social Work and Teacher Training. There are no lower and upper age limits for admission to most BA/BAcc/BSc degree programmes at Stirling.

All applications received by UCAS before the initial ‘cut-off’ date (currently 15 January) will be considered on an equal basis. However, sometimes we can consider applications in some subjects after this date. Programmes available for consideration after this date will be shown on the UCAS website.
