ISA (International Studies Abroad) Reviews

I attended the Stirling International Summer School during this past summer in 2016. I was there for two months, for the Summer 1 Block and the Summer 2 Block. I attended all of the excursions planned by ISA as well as by the University of Stirling's ISS. The housing was incredible! We stayed in Beech Court, with the traditional flat style with varying residents per flat, and everyone got their own individual bathroom! Mike Kurtyka our program director was stellar! He was so helpful and planned so many events for us - I felt lucky to be able to depend on him! Classes were great, the school week was from Monday-Wednesday. I absolutely LOVED my experience traveling through ISA and being able to attend the University of Stirling. Definitely recommend Stirling and ISA!

Amazing program with amazing people! I really became connected with the culture and stepped out of my comfort zone while being in Scotland. Truly an incredible experience and would definitely come back in a heart beat!

Highly recommend this program in Glasgow! Having a program director available was helpful when trying to sort through necessary paperwork and deadlines during my stay. Also having a home base to meet up with other ISA students and go on tours together was a plus. Would definitely study abroad again if I didn't already graduate from college!
Glasgow academic year

This program was excellent. I had plenty of guidance but also the opportunity to figure things out on my own. The regional director was always available and more than willing than help. I learned and experienced more than I ever thought possible, and I can't wait to go back!
Stirling summer 2016

This program is absolutely a must-do! My study abroad experience in Stirling was definitely one of the best experiences of my life. Stirling is the perfect location- close enough to both Edinburgh and Glasgow for day trips and also to the Highlands! Stirling itself is a smaller, quaint town but has everything you would need and more! There are many restaurants for going out to eat, a shopping mall, the Stirling Castle, other sight seeing destinations, with very friendly people. Every time I went into town I discovered some place new! The University is small but beautiful, with many things to do during the day- walk around the loch, hike to the top of Dumyat, take a bus into town and explore Stirling- never a dull moment! The classes were small and had great excursions that emerged the students deeper into the Scottish culture. The dorm rooms we stayed in were updated and very comfortable- with a shared kitchen and your own private room and bathroom. And Mike the program director is super helpful with anything you need! He also plans a few of his own day excursions for the ISA group! Stirling became a second home to me and I couldn't recommend it enough to anyone thinking of going!!
