What past students have to say 

Johanna Hecht 
KU Study Abroad '15

I felt like a part of the global community

“Stirling is a place full of rich history and endless opportunities. The locals are extremely welcoming, and in just four weeks I felt like I was a part of the wonderful Stirling community. Its proximity to cities like Edinburgh and Glasgow is also a huge bonus! It was the best study abroad experience I could ask for.”

I can't wait to go back to Scotland

"Studying at the University of Stirling was easily one of the best experiences of my life. I was forced to step out of my comfort zone in a new country, all the while having both KU students and a KU faculty member present. I truly can't wait to go back to Scotland in the future."

It helped me find myself

"Studying abroad in Stirling was one of the greatest decisions I've ever made. Aside from things that I learned in the classroom, I learned more about myself in the four weeks I spent in Scotland than I ever have in my life. The Scottish culture I was immersed in helped me find an identity that I never knew I had."
