API program sneak peak – Stirling, Scotland

As we prepare for the upcoming fall semester, we wanted to give you a sneak peak to some exciting new API study abroad programs. Today’s installment – the University of Stirling in Stirling, Scotland.

Stirling is the ancient capital of Scotland, laying at the heart of the nation’s history and linked to two of its best known heros, William Wallace and Robert the Bruce. Occupying a strategic position in the cultural heartland of Scotland, it is surrounded by glorious countryside and yet under an hour away from both Edinburgh and Glasgow. The cobble-stoned streets of the Old Town wind upwards towards the Castle, set on a craggy outcrop 250 feet above the surrounding landscape. The Wallace Monument overlooks some of the most important battle sites in Scottish history, but the city itself buzzes with a lively, cosmopolitan and student friendly vibe, a mix of history and modern. Stirling is one of the U.K.’s most attractive places to live and offers a full menu of performing arts, nightlife and shopping combined with the community feel of a smaller city.

University of Stirling

The University of Stirling campus is set in 310 acres of stunning woodland and landscaped parkland around the shores of a loch in the grounds of Airthrey Castle. One of the most attractive campuses in Europe, the castle itself houses the university’s School of Law. There are approximately 11,500 students at the university, representing over 90 nationalities. U. Stirling has an excellent reputation for research and teaching and was named “Scottish University of the Year” for 2009/10. One of the safest campuses in the U.K., Stirling is also Scotland’s University for Sporting Excellence, and they have some of the finest sporting facilities on a single site in the U.K. including a golf course and a 50 meter swimming pool. The campus is self-contained with housing, classes, a major sports center, computer labs, library, restaurants, travel agent, pharmacy, supermarket, coffee bars and even an arts center with a theater and cinema, yet it is only 2 miles from the center of Stirling with easy and frequent transport links.

Further details will be available in the coming weeks on the API website and 2012-2013 API catalog.

  1. Annnnnnd cue the nostalgia!! Such an amazing place to study abroad (ok so I’m biased since I DID study abroad there) but still….so much cultural history and a great jumping off point to other places. As far as I’m concerned, Dumyat offers one of the best views in Stirling, with the lowlands spread out to the south and the highlands to the north. You can’t go wrong with the William Wallace Monument either. The climb up the winding staircase may be a workout, but the views from the top will take your breath away for another reason entirely. SO exciting to see this happening for API!! 🙂

With research and planning, you can find a study abroad program that fits your budget. We believe in being up-front with what’s included and avoiding hidden fees.
