Program Description:

Arcadia - U of Edinburgh
Elegant and prestigious, yet lively and always popular for study abroad

Scotland is a favorite study abroad destination for students and the University of Edinburgh, one of the world’s leading academic institutions, is always a popular choice. It has the oldest English literature department in Britain and its alumni include Charles Darwin, David Hume, and former UK Prime Minister Gordon Brown.

Located in the heart of Scotland's capital city, which itself is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, the university’s primary campus was built around George's Square, with its views of Edinburgh Castle and the great craggy rocks of Arthur's seat. There is also a King's Buildings campus for students in the College of Science and Engineering, with its own library, computer lab facilities, and a free shuttle bus between the two campuses. Edinburgh is a real student town and you can move easily between your classes and life in the city within a matter of minutes.

Against the backdrop of the elegance and striking beauty of the city it calls home, the university hosts a population of over 20,000 students. This world-class research university is nestled into the city itself, creating a student-centric environment that is both scholarly and fun. It offers an extensive range of courses in the arts, humanities, social sciences, science and engineering, languages, divinity studies, education, business, law, medicine and veterinary medicine, and music. The University's business school is accredited by AACSB.
