Program Description:
USFSP Comparative Education in Scotland

Program Dates: TBD


Program Description


George Square City Centre

Program dates: June 10 - July 1, 2017

In this program, students will have the opportunity to study comparative education and pedagogy in a global context. Students will earn USFSP credit while while learning about the Scottish education system first hand from University of Glasgow School of Education faculty and through classroom observation of local Scottish schools. The second course will be taught by USFSP College of Education faculty at University of Glasgow facilities and focus on comparing the role of education in Scottish versus American society. 

Once USFSP Education Abroad meets the minimum enrollment for the program, students will need to apply separately through the University of Glasgow's online portal. USFSP Education Abroad will send students instructions at the appropriate time.

Participants in this program will need to apply for short term study visa in the United Kingdom. Students are informed to wait to apply until USFSP Education Abroad sends students instructions after the program has met minimum enrollment. US passport holders can apply for a short term study visa on arrival at any UK airport and don’t need to apply in advance. See for fees and additional information. Non-US passport holders will be responsible for researching rules and fees regarding entry into the UK.


Glasgow Green
With a population of over 600,000 Glasgow is Scotland's largest city and the third largest in the United Kingdom. Continuously settled since prehistoric times and nestled on the River Clyde, Glasgow's name derives from Gaelic and translates as "dear green place". Less than 50 miles from Edinburgh, the capital of Scotland, Glasgow also has its own reputation as an artistic capital of Europe. It was named the European City of Culture for 1990, deemed a UNESCO City of Music, and is home to over 20 museums.

Famous alumni include founder of modern economics Adam Smith, seven Nobel Laureates, and even the writer and producer of the popular television shows Doctor Who and Sherlock.
