School Description

INTO University of Stirling works with the University of Stirling to produce unique academic pathway programmes for international students. Featuring specialist subject-specific modules as well as expert English language tuition, these programmes are designed to help international students prepare for their undergraduate or postgraduate degree in Scotland. If students fail to meet the academic requirements or IELTS level needed for direct entry to university, INTO University of Stirling helps them achieve this.

If students choose to study a pathway programme, they can progress to one of several leading Scottish universities. Students can also progress from their preparation year directly to a degree at the University of Stirling if they choose the single study plan programme. Combining preparation studies with an undergraduate or postgraduate degree, the single study plan leads to a wide range of degree areas including Accounting, Biology, Big Data, Business, Computing, Economics, Environmental Science, Film, Human Resource Management, Psychology, Software Engineering and Sport Science.

The modern INTO Centre in the heart of campus opened in September 2017 and has all the facilities you’d expect from a contemporary building. INTO students previously studied in the Airthrey Castle on campus. The Centre’s classrooms contain the latest learning technology and there’s even a lecture theatre and café in the building. INTO Stirling students stay in accommodation on or near campus and have access to the University’s facilities, such as the Sports Centre and the Students’ Union.
