Adult Returners

Stow College attracts a diverse range of students, from Scotland and overseas, as well as young to old.

Indeed, 63% of our students are aged 25 or over.

Many of our adult returners are entering education for the first time since they left school, and it can often be a daunting experience. We understand this at Stow, and are here to help make your transition as smooth as possible.

We offer the most extensive range of SWAP Access programmes in Scotland. These are courses specifically designed to provide a route into Higher Education for mature adults with few or no qualifications.

Getting started couldn't be easier with our in-house support services. Staff at The Hub and Learner Services are on hand to give you advice on everything from funding to excelling in your studies.
