About the Program

The Sanford School of Public Policy and the Global Education Office for Undergraduates (GEO-U) are pleased to offer a program in coordination with the University of Glasgow.

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.

While at Glasgow, students on the program take a specifically-designed course on British policy and politics (PUBPOL 450AS) and three additional elective courses from the University of Glasgow's regular offerings.

Students from all majors are welcome to apply.  For more information, see the Sanford School of Public Policy's website.

    • Dear Global Education Office:

      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 travelling to various parts of Great Britain and Europe.

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