Studying abroad is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, so we do our best to ensure you make the most of your time in Scotland. The ISS programme includes guided trips across the country and social activities like traditional highland dancing lessons and hiking. You'll also enjoy discounted tours of some of Scotland's most breath-taking treasures.
The ISS comes as an all inclusive package that includes tuition, field trips, excursions, housing, social activities, designated airport pick up/drop off. You'll also enjoy use of the University of Stirling's sport facilities and a dedicated 24 hour team of staff.
The cost of the programme depends on whether you're planning to study for one or two four-week blocks, and how many credits you intend taking. For summer 2017, the fee for one block pathways will be £2,875. Two blocks start from £5,075.
Our broad programme not only offers you the opportunity to sample student life here at the University of Stirling, but it also enables you to gain credits towards your degree at your own home institution in the process.
Each module (class) you successfully complete at Stirling will earn you 10 SCQF credits, which are the equivalent of 3 US semesters or 5 ECTS credits.
The ISS is structured in two 4-week blocks. Because we like to offer you a bit of flexibility, you are free to take these blocks either independently or consecutively.
For summer 2017, the ISS will operate across the following dates:
|Block 1||Saturday 10 June - Saturday 8 July 2017|
|Block 2||Saturday 8 July - Saturday 5 August 2017|
- Kat, Drake University, USA
- Andrea, Utah State University, USA
- Liz, University of South Carolina, USA
