The ability to live in Scotland, honestly. The town is beautiful and you're a 40 minute walk from a beautiful hike through endless hills and this is right behind the campus. The courses were rich and engaging but it was up to me to do the research and get things done which I really enjoyed. You're a half hour train ride away from Edinburgh or Glasgow, and the public transit makes it so easy to get anywhere.

I learned that the University of Stirling is very accommodating to international students and offers many opportunities to be involved with the University. Outside of the classroom, any international student can join a club or organization, there is even an international society, and there is a huge sports facility for club sports or working out to stay active.

I loved everything about Stirling, it was like living in a fairy tale! The campus is breathtakingly beautiful, centered around a swan laden loch, surrounded by rugged mountainous hills and all of the history of Scotland. The Wallace Monument is visible from almost every point on campus if not Stirling. The city itself is just the right size and the people lovely. But the best thing about Scotland is how easily everything is connected via trains. My friends and I would easily hop on a train and speed off to Edinburgh or Glasgow whenever we wanted a big city feel.
