Semester Full Curriculum: Students who choose to study abroad in Stirling with API enroll in courses with Scottish and other international students at the University of Stirling – one of the most popular universities in Scotland. The university offers courses across five major areas, including health and well-being, culture and society, environment, enterprise and the economy, and sport. The University of Stirling award credits based on the Scottish Credit and Qualifications Framework (SCQF). To determine U.S. semester credit equivalency, common practice is to divide the SCQF amount by 4. Generally, one course at Stirling is worth 20 SCQF credits, which equates to approximately 5 U.S. semester credits. 3 Stirling modules (60 SCQF credits) is considered a full-semester load, and 6 course modules (120 SCQF credits)is considered a full-year load. Students take 3 courses per semester and earn up to 15 U.S. semester credits.
International Summer School: Students who choose to study abroad in Stirling with API will choose from summer modules/classes offered over two four-week blocks. Each module consists of in-class and excursion components, giving students the opportunity to enjoy university teaching both in and out of the classroom. Modules are assessed by a combination of exam, essay, presentation and fieldwork. There is an internship option available in the 2nd summer session. Students who are interested in this option must also participate in the summer 1 session, and are strongly encouraged to apply early, as placements fill quickly. Summer students at the University of Stirling can earn 3 credits per course for a total of 6-12 U.S. semester credits over a four-eight week period.
