The Wisconsin in Scotland program takes you to Dalkeith, a bustling village   just six short miles southeast of Edinburgh in the Midlothian region of Scotland.  Edinburgh and the surrounding region provide an ideal environment for educational programs. Students in this program live and learn in the Dalkeith Palace built in the early 18th century by the Buccleuch Family; which has been home to the Wisconsin in Scotland program for over 20 years.
The Palace is spacious and provides room for residence life and food service facilities, classrooms, offices, lounge areas, laundry and recreation rooms.

Dalkeith Palace

Student Life and Surroundings

Students in the Program  have a strong feeling  of  community living and learning with their professors, and student peers in the Dalkeith Palace.
With Edinburgh being such a short  distance students utilize their public transport pass and take trips into the city. Edinburgh, the  capital of Scotland since 1124, is a classic European city; the richness of British history, politics, literature, poetry, arts, and other subjects come alive at every turn.  The natural beauty of the Scottish landscape and its coastline provide a majestic background for exploration, education, and enrichment. Students also take advantage of their free time on weekends to explore the rest of the U.K. and other amazing countries in Europe. The program allows three days of travel/exploration most weekends. Many cultural activities are included in each program.



Cost of Attendance, Financial Aid, and Scholarships

The Experience Scotland program remains one of the most cost-effective study abroad options available. Your program fee covers tuition, lodging, international health & emergency insurance, 11 meals/week at Dalkeith House while classes are in session, use of a "pay-as-you-go" module phone, bus pass, 24/7 staff support, excursions to local points of interest, UWRF administrative & application fees, and a refundable work/damage deposit.  As with all approved study abroad programs, UW-W financial aid can be used on this program.  Eligible students are encouraged to apply for the Wisconsin Grant for Study Abroad, and UW-W and external study abroad scholarships are available.

The University of Wisconsin Whitewater has an application fee of $225.00 that will be placed on the student's account after students have confirmed their participation.  Other expenses are paid individually (e.g. personal expenses).
