How does it work?
If you know exactly which subjects you’d like to study, you can apply for one of our combined courses now – or, thanks to our flexible course structure, you can try out different subjects and decide which ones you’d like to combine later.
After you’ve been accepted onto a course you’ll sign up for three modules to take in your first semester. At least one of those modules will be in the degree you picked, but the others could be from the wide range of modules we offer in other subjects.
For example, a Politics student could also take French and Philosophy or a Film & Media student could take Business and History.
It’s completely up to you! We have over 220 single and combined courses to choose from.
You’ll be allowed to continue with these subjects – or keep on trying new ones – until halfway through your second year.

Making your choices
After Semester 3, you’ll be able to mix and match two subjects for a Combined Honours degree if you have taken the necessary modules.
That means if you’re a Marketing student who fell in love with Film & Media in your first year, you can either drop Marketing to focus on Film & Media or combine both to get a degree in Marketing, Film & Media.
You don’t have to combine subjects – and you don’t have to switch either. But here at Stirling we think you deserve the choice and flexibility you need to make the most of your time at university - and be the difference in whatever it is you’d like to do.
