Program Summary & Location
The University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire & the University of Stirling established a bilateral exchange agreement in 2016, after exchanging students through a Wisconsin-Scotland consortium for many years prior to that. You can study at Stirling for a semester or a full academic year.
With a student population of 9,000, the University of Stirling is known for programs in Film & Media Studies, English, History, Environmental Science, Management, and Sociology. Built in the rolling hills of a former Airthrey estate- with Airthrey Castle still in place as a teaching building- the Stirling campus boasts a friendly atmosphere and a strong community spirit. In 2009-2010, students selected the University of Stirling as the Scottish University of the Year.
Stirling is Scotland's newest city and is a short bus ride from campus. With a population of around 41,000, the city offers a warm community welcome and is within easy reach of both Glasgow (50 min. by train) and Edinburgh (25 min. by train).

Housing & Meals
At Stirling, you will stay in on-campus flats or chalets, where 3-7 students have single bedrooms but share living, kitchen and bathroom space. There
are meal packages available, but most students choose to cook for themselves with the kitchen becoming the social center of the living space! Find details here
