The Experience 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. The richness of Scottish history, politics, literature, poetry, arts, and other subjects come alive at every turn. Edinburgh, the capital of Scotland since 1124, is a classic European city. There the medieval grandeur of Old Town, crowned by Edinburgh Castle and Holyrood Palace, joins harmoniously with the modern attractions of New Town. The natural beauty of the Scottish landscape and its coastline provide a majestic background for exploration, education, and enrichment.You will be housed, and take classes at, Newbattle Abbey. This historic 16th century building was formerly a Cistercian monastery. Today the Abbey is home to Newbattle Abbey College.

Academics

While in Scotland, you will find yourself an important member of our community of scholars. There is much to learn in Scotland and, as such, our expectations of you will be high. You will be expected to be an active participant in your own learning, using the local Scottish environment as a laboratory, and incorporating this learning into your classroom experience.

You will be enrolled in 15 credits throughout your experience. 12 of these credits will be fulfilled in four 3-credit courses offered in module format throughout the semester. Courses taken in a module format run approximately three weeks. These courses are offered one-at-a-time. Your final 3-credit course will be Scotland: Society and Globalization, a wide-ranging course that explores different aspects of contemporary Scottish society. This course meets throughout the entire semester to provide ongoing context to your international experience.

Courses offered during each term of the Experience Scotland program vary based on the disciplines of the faculty selected to teach in the program.

Students enrolled at an Experience Scotland partner school will receive priority enrollment in the program, but it is an experience open to any student currently enrolled at a U.S. institution of higher education.

Courses are taught by faculty from the participating universities, as well as Scottish faculty. All courses are designed to take advantage of the Scottish setting. The program allows time for independent travel with a 10-day break and several long weekends. Many cultural activities are included in each program.
