Study Abroad in Glasgow, Scotland

The Sanford School of Public Policy study-abroad program with the University of Glasgow was initiated in 1982 by Founding Director and Professor of Public Policy Joel Fleishman. It is a unique and highly popular feature of the Public Policy major.

Offered each fall, the program begins with a visit to London, featuring meetings with members of Parliament and visits to key cultural and political institutions. Additionally, students typically travel to other sites of political and historical interest in Scotland.

"Spending a semester in Glasgow, Scotland not only taught me a lot about a different culture, but it taught me a lot about myself. Studying abroad allowed me to become more independent, and since I didn't have as many extracurricular activities, I was able to choose freely what I wanted to do (aside from my classes) week to week. The majority of that included traveling to various parts of Great Britain and Europe.

The picture is one of me in the Highlands of Scotland, the wildest and most gorgeous part of Scotland in my opinion. If you plan on traveling to Scotland, make sure to schedule a trip here! You won't regret it!" Sydney Thomas
