The University of Stirling is delighted to welcome international students from around the world to take part in the International Summer School (ISS) during the summer of 2014.
Watch a short video about the International Summer School produced by University of Stirling students.
The broad programme presents a unique opportunity to sample student life at the University, whilst gaining credits towards your degree programme at your home institution. The ISS is run by a full-time team of six within the University’s International Summer School Office.

The ISS will be structured in two 4-week blocks which can be taken independently or consecutively.
|Block 1||Saturday 14 June - Saturday 12 July 2014|
|Block 2||Saturday 12 July - Saturday 9 August 2014|
Social activities and day trips are an important part of the programme beyond your studies. The ISS programme cost includes guided day trips to St Andrews, Glasgow and Edinburgh, and a full programme of social activities including pub quiz nights, Movie nights, guided hikes and walking tours.
There will also be additional opportunities to visit Scottish treasures such as Loch Ness, Glencoe, the Highlands and the Isle of Skye at discounted rates. You can even learn/practice your Scottish country dancing at the ISS ceilidh (kay-lee).
