An Arcadia study abroad experience in Scotland includes studying at a comprehensive research university, orientation programming to introduce you to the history, culture, and current affairs of the country, and excursions that provide for further exploration of the land and its people. You'll be able to take advantage of all of this whether you spend a summer, semester, or year on an Arcadia program.

Its primary campus built around George's Square, with its views of Edinburgh Castle and the great craggy rocks of Arthur's seat, is composed of Georgian stone buildings in keeping with the history of Edinburgh's Old Town . The city is a real student town and you can move easily between your classes and life in the city within a matter of minutes.
