Unique campus in a pastoral setting with a loch and an 18th Century Castle

If you are looking for a truly inspirational, scenic campus with excellent student satisfaction ratings and top academics then The University of Stirling could be for you. It boasts a 310-acre park-like location which is surrounded by the Trossach Hills, the setting for the movie Rob Roy, and encompasses Airthrey Loch and Airthrey Castle. It is a modern university though, built in 1967, and is only a short bus ride away from the town of Stirling, known as the heart of Scotland.

Study Abroad at Stirling International Summer School allows you to study side-by-side with other international students in an incomparably beautiful area of Scotland. Choose from two programs with the opportunity to enroll in a wide variety of areas including business and management, politics, history, sports studies, international relations, English, and film and media studies. Many of the courses incorporate British or Scottish themes including Scotland on the Screen and Scottish History: The Jacobites, among others.

  • Named as Scotland’s University for Sporting Excellence, Stirling has outstanding sports facilities and offers courses in sports studies and exercise science.

  • University of Stirling provides a full orientation program, which includes a campus tour, bus tour of Stirling and the surrounding area, as well as an introduction to library and computing facilities.
