There are two course options available:

What's special about this course?

In the Year Two preparation programme, you'll study at the INTO Centre on campus. You'll develop your English language and study skills, as well as study a range of academic modules for your chosen degree. After this, you'll study your chosen undergraduate degree at the University of Stirling. 

As well as a conditional offer from the University of Stirling for successful students and full access to all the university facilities you'll benefit from:

  • a quality-assured university programme
  • direct entry to year three of an undergraduate degree
  • full university status
  • high contact hours and small class sizes for your first year
  • the highest levels of pastoral care and support

What if I need to improve my English level?

If you need to improve your English level by up to 0.5 of an IELTS band before you start your course, you can apply for the Pre-sessional English option. This will add a term (3 months) of extra English language tuition to your programme.

What will I study?

All students study a set of core modules. The course is 120 credits in total and there is an average of 21 class hours per week.

Core modules:

English for Undergraduate Study (20 credits)

Through this module the four key skill areas are covered: reading, writing, listening and speaking. The programme develops overall academic skill areas including the ability to write effectively for academic purposes using a variety of tasks; ability to use and synthesise source materials efficiently. It prepares students for participation in academic seminars and discussions, and draws on information on topics from the social sciences, which will form the basis for creative, academic discussion and student autonomy in learning.

Academic Skills and ICT for Undergraduate Study (10 credits)

This module is designed to help develop university-level study skills in making notes and interpreting data. Students will also develop skills in teamwork, problem solving, time management, working in groups, making presentations, exchanging and defending ideas. These key skills include self monitoring and assessment, critical awareness of one's own performance. Time is also allocated to consolidating core ICT (Information Communication Technology) skills.

British Institutions and Culture (10 credits)

This module is designed to introduce students to important aspects of key British institutions and the main elements of British culture. An awareness of such features of British life, at a national and regional level, is considered essential if international students are to understand the non-subject-specific references to these things which they will inevitably come across in their studies. The module will also consider Britain's relationship with Europe and the rest of the world. Topics covered include: industrialisation and de-industrialisation, the shaping of modern British culture, regional and class differences and identity, as well as educational, religious, political and legal institutions.

Mathematics and Statistics for Management (20 credits)

Applying quantitative methods, the module offers an introduction to some basic statistical concepts and methods of data analysis, which are commonly used by businesses to reduce uncertainty when making decisions. This module builds on basic mathematical knowledge to prepare students in those areas of mathematics and statistics required in management and social sciences. The module covers mathematics, from basic algebra through to an introduction to differential and integral calculus, while the statistics covered focuses on key data handling, presentation and analysis skills.

 

Specialist modules:

The course is also made up of specialist  modules. These are optional, so you can choose the ones you would like to study as part of your International Year Two programme. 

Some modules are compulsory, depending on your chosen degree programme. See the list below for the compulsory modules for each degree subject.
