Semester in Stirling Arrival

Please arrive to either Glasgow Airport or Edinburgh Airport on arrival day.  Stirling Direct will pick you up!

An important note: you will be asked to present 18 GBP for your ride to campus, as Stirling Direct prefers cash payments!

CISabroad will reimburse you when you meet our site director, Jeanna Brady, in Edinburgh the weekend after you arrive.

Airport pickup is included in the CISabroad program fee, but we cannot guarantee airport pickup for anyone that arrives outside of the designated arrival times. To help us make sure we meet you at the airport, please fill out your flight arrival information in your portal, if you have not done so already. Again, if Stirling Direct requires payment from students upon arrival, you will be reimbursed for these fees by your Site Director at Orientation.

Stirling Direct will meet you at the airport, but not in baggage claim or before you have gone through customs and/or immigration. They will meet you outside of these areas after you exit customs/immigration. They will then transfer you to your housing.

Your bags may decide to take a later flight (don’t panic). If the airline loses your luggage you must file a report with the airline while you are still in the baggage area. It is much more difficult to file this report once you’ve left the baggage claim area.

If your flight is delayed, please make sure to call the CISabroad Emergency phone so that we can inform our onsite team of your delay. We will do everything we can to pick you up from the airport, even if your flight is delayed, but if we cannot meet you there, we will provide you with detailed information on how to take transportation to your housing.

A Pre-Arrival sheet will be e-mailed to you, 1-2 weeks before you arrive onsite. This will contain more detailed information on your arrival as well as specific phone numbers and contact information if there are any issues with your flight or airport pickup.
