Course Choices

For information and advice on choosing the right course for you, speak to one of our Learner Advisers.

They’ll be able to point you in the right direction based on your future career aspirations, skills and strengths, qualifications and experience.

They can also refer you to an external advice agency, such as Skills Development Scotland, where appropriate.

Our Learner Advisers offer drop in sessions from the Student Centres on each campus or you can also book an appointment. To find out more about availability, please enquire at our campus receptions or email our advice shop.

Progressing to University

If you are planning to apply to university upon completion of your course, our Learner Advisers can provide information and advice on the UCAS application process.

You should also watch out for UCAS workshops available throughout the year or download our UCAS Guide.

Our Learner Advisers offer drop in sessions from the Student Centres on each campus or you can also book an appointment. To find out more about availability, please enquire at our campus receptions or email learneradvisers@forthvalley.ac.uk.

You may also be interested in articulation links we have with universities across Scotland.

Our articulation links provide clear pathways from an HNC/HND programme to a university degree and often offer students direct entry into the 2nd or 3rd year of a degree course. Your lecturer should be able to provide more information on specific articulation links related to your course or area of study.

We currently have articulation agreements in place with:

  • The Open University
  • The University of Stirling
  • Heriot-Watt University
  • Edinburgh Napier University
  • Glasgow Caledonian University

Our integrated degrees offer the perfect blend of academic and practical skills to create 'work ready' graduates.

Students will spend the first two years of their course studying at Forth Valley College before completing their degree programme at one of our partner universities.

Students will have full university status from day one.

We currently have six integrated degrees available in partnership with the University of Stirling, Heriot-Watt University and Strathclyde University.

Our Learner Advisers will be happy to chat about your options and steer you in the right direction.

Alternatively, you can also book an appointment with one of the specialist Careers Advisers from Skills Development Scotland who visit our campuses each week.

If you are experiencing personal issues whilst studying at college, please don’t struggle on your own.

Accessing support early can often stop a small problem becoming a crisis.

The College also offers a free Counselling Service and a Health & Wellbeing Service. Both are completely confidential and are available to all students throughout term time.

If you feel you would benefit from either of these services, please contact our Learner Advisers for more information.
