Your courses at University of Stirling

Scotland is internationally renowned for its education system. Undergraduate degrees at Scottish universities typically take 4 years to complete. At postgraduate, most UK Master’s degrees only take a year, allowing you to start your career quicker than in many other international study destinations. 

INTO University of Stirling offers a broad range of integrated CAS (iCAS) programs. These programs combine a pathway program with an undergraduate or a Master’s degree. You’ll receive a visa for the full duration of your study plan – cutting out the hassle and additional costs of renewing your visa. 

Don’t qualify for an iCAS program? Apply for one of our standalone pathway programs which offer the same guaranteed route to a Stirling degree. 

Please note: some of our courses are only available if you're classified as international fee paying. To find out if this applies to you, contact us today.
