About The Program
Got a research topic you've always wanted to pursue? Take your curiosity and ideas to Scotland, where you'll build a strong relationship with faculty mentors on a program that mimics graduate school. No large lecture halls and no anonymity. You'll focus on a single research topic in life science, chemistry, or history and present your results in the form of a research article at a mock conference. On weekends, dance the lively Scottish cèilidh to traditional folk music, visit a 13th-century castle, hike in Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park. This is a six-week program that leaves plenty of summer open for trips throughout Europe.
Where you'll study
Attend the alma mater to some of the world’s most renowned innovators: physicist and engineer Lord Kelvin, economist Adam Smith, and pioneer of television John Logie Baird. Among the UK’s earliest universities, parts of the University of Glasgow feel like a set out of a Harry Potter movie. On your way to classes, you’ll pass by elegant spires, gothic-arched windows, epic colonnades, and halls where Albert Einstein once lectured. In other areas, you’ll find the modern labs, sleek steel and glass structures, and Ivy-League-grade facilities one would expect at a leading school for international research. The main campus is located in the posh West End of Glasgow about two miles from the city center.
