The university offers courses across five major areas, including health and well-being, culture and society, environment, enterprise and the economy, and sport.

CREDIT INFORMATION

The University of Stirling award credits based on the Scottish Credit and Qualifications Framework (SCQF). To determine U.S. semester credit equivalency, common practice is to divide the SCQF amount by 4. Generally, one course at Stirling is worth 20 SCQF credits, which equates to approximately 5 U.S. semester credits. 3 Stirling modules (60 SCQF credits) is considered a full-semester load, and 6 course modules (120 SCQF credits)is considered a full-year load. Students take 3 courses per semester and earn up to 15 U.S. semester credits.
