The Wisconsin in Scotland (WIS) program is a study abroad program that offers a unique "living and learning community" environment. Students live and study together in the historic Dalkeith House, just outside of Ediburgh, Scotland.
UW-River Falls, UW-Stout, UW-Superior, UW-Parkside, UW-Whitewater, UW-Colleges and Normandale Community College offer participation in the WIS program to their students and faculty members. Students can participate for either one semester, for the academic year, or for the six-week summer program. Students are taught by a mix of local Scottish professors and visiting professors from member schools.
AcademicsThe courses offered during each term of the Wisconsin in Scotland program vary based on the disciplines of the faculty selected to teach that term. Courses are taught by faculty from the participating Wisconsin universities. There are also courses offered by British faculty during the fall and spring semesters. All courses are designed to take advantage of the Scottish setting. Fall and spring semester students are required to enroll in a minimum of 12 credits. Summer participants are required to enroll in a minimum of 3 credits. During the semester program, there is the opportunity for independent study/directed study courses and/or internships with home campus approval. Students who take part in the semester or year long program have the opportunity to participate in internships to enhance their learning experience.

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.
Student Life and SurroundingsStudents 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 semester program allows time for independent travel with a 10-day break and several long weekends. The summer program allows three days of travel/exploration most weekends. Many cultural activities are included in each program.
