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 3-12 U.S. semester credits over a four-eight week period.
