Studying abroad can be a more meaningful and invigorating learning experience than at home—both inside and outside of the classroom. You may be more curious and alert than you usually are so use this heightened energy to enhance your studies as well as your cultural and geographical explorations. You may also encounter different teaching styles and course processes; be prepared to adapt and to learn.


USAC’s partnership with the University of Stirling provides a rich array courses in which you may enroll. Areas of study are included below. Students take three courses each semester.
