This study abroad program uses facilities at the University of Glasgow, including dorms and classrooms in the School of Education, and incorporates university faculty. The program schedule will include some mornings spent in local schools and afternoon class meetings on campus. You will be exposed to Scottish culture, food, and history, and learn firsthand from K-12 students and teachers about their educational experiences.
The program is open to all majors. This program will give you a Scottish experience while expanding your knowledge about education in an international context. It will broaden your understanding of how culture can affect policy using education as the lens.
Plus a required course:
Experience the historic city of Glasgow by living for part of the trip on the campus of the University of Glasgow and, for the remainder of your trip, in an apartment in the city. Both experiences allow you to become immersed in the city's life and vibrant culture.
The program includes several planned trips, including day trips to Edinburgh and Edinburgh Castle, Culzean Castle, and Stirling Castle and the William Wallace monument. We also take an overnight journey on the Hogwart's Express. Two weekends are unplanned, allowing you to travel on your own. You will also take part in a traditional Robert Burns dinner as well as a farewell dinner, and box lunches are provided for some events.
