- The time of my life10/07/18
This past summer I spent four amazing weeks in Scotland all because of CISabroad. Out of all the programs that I googled, CIS had exactly what I was looking for: affordable, accommodating, good safety record, and interesting classes. The staff here in
the US and in Scotland were always there when I had a question or concern. Through CIS I made life long friends on my trip and I’ll forever be grateful. I definitely recommend any CISabroad program to anyone especially Summer in Scotland: Stirling!read moreBottom Line:Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
- My Time in Scotland10/02/18
My time in Scotland was one I will never forget. I loved every little thing about that place. I loved the weather, the culture, the food, the people, the scenery, the way of life, literally anything and everything. I did not have one thing that I disliked
about Scotland. I had class Monday-Wednesday then we traveled as a group to places in Scotland on Thursday's. On Friday you either had excursions for class or a free day that allowed you to do whatever. This allowed me to go to Ireland and England. On this program, I met some of my very best friends and we talk everyday. Almost every day, the student leaders had activities planned for us like hiking or competing in the Scottish Highland games. There was always something to do and something to see. I highly recommend this program to anyone, it is now my favorite place I have ever traveled to!read moreBottom Line:Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

The program was well worth the money. They take you to all the major cities and let you explore for the day every Thursday. The farewell ceilidhs are so much fun and you get to learn traditional dances. Though Stirling is smaller than most unis, the experiences
are still there. Take every opportunity you can and don't hold back. If you drink, alcohol is much cheaper than in the bigger cities. Everything closes much earlier than in the states, so plan your trips to town carefully. Don't be afraid to ask for help with the bus routes. Sportsters and messy bombs are highly recommended. The mattresses are awful, bring an extra blanket or two to help cushion it. Utilize Stirling Direct for airport transportation. ISS is great overall and Stirling offers much in the way of neat places to go and see. Bring your camera with you everywhere. And I mean everywhere starting day one.read moreBottom Line:Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
