The Semester in Scotland program offers undergraduate students the opportunity to study for a semester or a year at the University of Edinburgh (UE), one of the top universities not just in the U.K. but also in the world. It is located in the heart of the historic Edinburgh Old Town, just minutes away from culture sites including Edinburgh Castle, the Royal Mile, and St. Giles Cathedral.
Given the prestige of the university, the Semester in Scotland program is a particularly good match for Honors students or those who are “honors-eligible”.
