Program Description:
Stirling, Scotland Summer

The University of Stirling's International Summer School (ISS) is open to students from around the world. The program is structured in two 4-week blocks and will include classes (modules) from a variety of subjects. UW-Eau Claire students may enroll in one 4-week block (Block 1 or Block 2) or in both 4-week blocks (Block 1 and Block 2)  for a total of 8 weeks. Students will earn six to nine credits upon successful completion depending on the option. Both the four-week and eight-week options include some social activities (welcome and farewell events and a Scottish Ceilidh) as well as some field trips and excursions to some of Scotland's top historical sights. 

Stirling is Scotland's newest city and is a 10-minute bus ride from campus. With a population of around 41,000, the city offers an interesting blend of the old (Stirling castle and the Wallace Monument) and the modern (cafes, restaurants, and department stores) and affords a warm community welcome. It is also within easy reach of both Glasgow (50 min. by train) and Edinburgh (25 min. by train) and the Scottish Highlands. 

With a student population of 9,000, the University of Stirling is known for programs in Film & Media Studies, English, History, Politics, Religion, Environmental Science, Management, and Sports. Built in the rolling hills of the former Airthrey estate- with Airthrey Castle still in place as a teaching building- the Stirling campus boasts a friendly atmosphere and a strong community spirit. In 2009-2010, students selected the University of Stirling as the Scottish University of the Year. Find details at 


You will be housed in on-campus, apartment-style accommodation with other International Summer School participants. You will have your own bedroom but share the apartment with 4 to 5 other students. You have kitchen facilities where you can prepare your own food.

This experience will be something I will be talking about for the rest of my life. Scotland was a dream and now it has become a reality. This is definitely the most rewarding experience any student can have during their college career. – Nicole, Summer 2012
