About The Program

Combine coursework and real-world experience in Scottish politics and culture during an internship in Edinburgh. While open to all majors, this program is especially suited for international affairs, law, education, and communication majors. Working with either a member of Scottish Parliament or an NGO, your duties could include researching motions, writing speeches, or assisting constituents. During a two-day trip to London, see government in action at the UK Houses of Parliament. In Edinburgh, you'll find a large student population, giving the historic city a youthful buzz. 

Where you'll study

The Edinburgh study center is located at the heart of the University of Edinburgh’s central campus next to George Square. The study center acts as a liaison point between UCEAP and host universities in the UK. A UC faculty consultant, local staff, an academic coordinator, and an internship supervisor all help interns understand and enjoy Scottish culture and provide assistance with academics, safety, health, and other needs. The study center is on the ground floor of a beautiful stone building of Georgian style. There are two office spaces and a large meeting room where orientations, classes, and social activities are held. The large windows in this space look out onto The Meadows, one of the city’s largest and most popular green spaces.
