Program Description:

In this program, facilitated by IFSA-Butler, students enroll directly in the University of Edinburgh, a renowned university founded in 1583 in a glorious city dominated by Edinburgh Castle. The university is a member of Britain's Russell Group of universities, similar to the Ivy League in the United States, and is known for academic excellence and as an international research center. Coursework is available across many disciplines, and there is even a coursework available on the Highland Bagpipe. Students live in university run apartments or dorms near the academic buildings. Both partially-catered and self-catered accommodations are available.
