As you board your plane in the U.S., leaving behind the comforts of home, family and friends for your new adventure in Scotland, be confident that we’ve got you covered pre-departure through to arrival and beyond.
Orientation usually lasts 3 days. For direct enroll programs we will arrange transportation from orientation to campus.
Social and cultural events will also help you get to know the other students, the Edinburgh Center staff and the city of Edinburgh.
Semester program participants will have a chance to enjoy a brief homestay with a Scottish family, to help you integrate into Scottish life and understand accents and the Scottish sense of humor. Homestays are sometimes part of orientation when possible, otherwise you can participate in an optional mid program homestay.
