Why PG study at Stirling?

The second intake will be September 2015. The  fee is £6000 Home/ EU and £11900 Overseas. The University of Stirling is offering any UK or European Union student with a First Class Honours degree (or equivalent) a £2,000 scholarship to study full-time on any taught Master’s course or £1,000 for part-time study. Further information on the scholarships is available here
