I learned how to be an independent traveler.
Elizabeth Marie Lewis, Fall 2015 Participant
I learned that finding a balance between academic work and personal interests is critical, especially when working within a new system and being in a place where travel is very available. It's very important to figure out what you need to do and what is expected of you in your coursework first, then make time for travelling, being social, and other personal interests.

My favorite part of the University of Stirling program was living in the city centre (Union Street) in University housing because it provided me the unique opportunity to live with all international students and create strong friendships between my flatmates and other students in the building. I made so many friends from all over the world that not only wanted to learn about Scottish culture, but everyone in the building's unique cultures as well. This really helped make Stirling home and attending Uni so enjoyable.
