The attractive and ancient city of Stirling has its roots from the Roman occupation of Britain, making it one of the most historic cities in all of the UK. Stirling has played a pivotal role in Scotland’s history, as well. It is the site of the famous Stirling Castle, the ancient seat of the Scottish Crown. The city was also the site of William Wallace’s Battle of the Stirling Bridge. Situated in the heart of Scotland, Stirling is less than 30 miles from Glasgow and 40 miles from Edinburgh—Scotland’s two largest cities.
Located on 310 acres of beautiful countryside, the University of Stirling has earned a reputation in the UK for being among the top ten “Student Experience” universities. Located in what has historically been known as the “Gateway to the Highlands”, the University of Stirling’s campus is nestled beneath the Ochil Hills that boasts a beautiful loch (lake) and an 18th-century Airthrey Castle.
COURSES AND CREDITS
A list of the courses ("modules") offered at Stirling is available on their Study Abroad page. Students applying to this program should plan to meet with the appropriate academic advisors to help determine course selection and to seek the necessary course approval(s).
All students will be registered by the Study Abroad Office as full-time students during their semester abroad, which is 12 hours for undergraduate students and 9 hours for graduate students. Undergraduate students must return with the equivalent of at least 12 hours of credit on their host university transcript (9 hours for graduate students). Students can take additional hours and are not limited to the minimum full-time requirement while abroad. All courses are graded on an ABCDF scale. There is no Pass/Fail.
Students will live in on-campus residence halls. More information can be found on these residences on their accommodations page.
Please note that students going to Stirling must book their accommodations before the deadline to get their desired hall of residence.
For the Stirling exchange, students are responsible for paying:
Current, full-time, UM tuition (including non-resident fees, if applicable)
UM Study Abroad fee (includes the cost for international health insurance)
Housing costs (details and payment are usually handled between the student and the host university)
Travel expenses, books and supplies, personal living costs, passport and visa fees (all the responsibility of the student)
Students who withdraw or become ineligible after the application deadline will be responsible for a withdrawal fee. For more details, please refer to the Study Abroad Policies & Procedures page.
Students must be in good academic and disciplinary standing to study abroad and must have a cumulative 2.5 GPA. Additional or more stringent requirements may apply depending on the program.
In general, financial aid will apply to UM study abroad programs. All students should review the study abroad information on the Financial Aid Office website. It is the student’s responsibility to meet with a financial aid advisor to discuss how aid packages apply to study abroad. Third party scholarships may also be available for specific programs, so students should discuss study abroad early and often with the Study Abroad Office and the Financial Aid Office.
For current tuition costs, the Office of the Bursar provides a tuition estimator.
