If you have the opportunity to study abroad, take it!
Submitted by Holly Comanse - Reno | October 17, 2017
Studying abroad can either be the best decision of your life or your biggest regret if you fail to take the opportunity as a college student. I loved my time abroad in London, England. Being in another English speaking country was a more seamless transition than a country that speaks another language. There were times I felt confused by the words or phrases that differ from America, but overall I didn’t have any problems. The semester layout is different but makes more sense than that in America. I learned a lot and was able to take courses specific to what I want to do with my degree, that my home university did not offer. The instructors were all familiar with study abroad programs and students and accommodated the program to fit the time schedule we were abroad. If you are able to take a semester or year abroad, do it. It will be so much more enriching than you even imagine. I required extra financial aid loans but they were worth it. Take every opportunity abroad to make your experience more worth while. Travel on weekends or attend school or program events. They are amazing! Have fun and thank me later!

Stirling Experience and Mike
Submitted by Jamie Dale - University of Houston | September 18, 2017
Being in Scotland and learning its rich history was an experienced to be unmatched, especially with our Resident Director, Mike Kurtyka. He went above and beyond to ensure every single student in his care could make the most of their experience and knew an incredible amount of each place we visited.
A Stirling Scottish program
Submitted by Caroline - Georgia College & State University | August 16, 2017
Stirling is an excellent program for anyone seeking to experience non-tourist Scotland. Its central location permits you to travel often, and it's not as touristy or busy as Edinburgh or Glasgow. The academics are mild but interesting and the campus is quite nice. There is easy access to the Ochil Hills and Hermitage Woods for hiking or jogging during the day, and the town is only a short bus ride away. I'd definitely recommend going.
An American immersed in Scottish culture
Submitted by Andie Parnell - Texas A&M University | August 16, 2017
Stirling, Scotland proved to be a perfect central location for travel and culture as an American student and intern. During my time here I was able to adjust to the community easily and adventure outside the university and Stirling in my free time. Overall the size, friendly people and location of Stirling made for an amazing abroad experience!

Had an amazing time during my study abroad, had no issues or concerns that couldn't be fixed by ISA. Mike was great as well and gave great tips on what there was to do around Scotland. He had a lot of knowledge on the country and it was nice learning from him things that we didn't learn from the locals or during our classes.
