Study Abroad in Scotland during Summer 2019!
**NOTE: As of February 4, 2019, this program is full. Contact email@example.com if you would like to be placed on a wait list**
In collaboration with Jacksonville University (JU) and Utah Valley University (UVU), Stetson will be sending students on a faculty-led program to Inverness, Scotland. Students will take classes taught by professors from Stetson, JU, and UVU in the subjects of Marketing, International Business, and Management. Classes will take place at the University of Highlands and Islands-Inverness College, located in Inverness, Scotland - the capital of the Scottish Highlands.
Courses offered include:
- MKTG 420 Global Marketing: Business without Borders (MKTG 315 pre-req can be waived if needed; this class can also satisfy the INTL 201 requirement in the business school)
- MGMT 305 Principles of Management
As part of the program, students will engage with the local culture, participate in a consulting project with local businesses, and earn Stetson credit. Students in the School of Business will also fulfill one of the Experiential Learning Requirements (ELR). Students may choose to take either one or two classes while in Scotland.
Part of the program requires a case study project with a local Scottish business, which is a fantastic resume builder! Students work with businesses and apply their coursework to offer solutions to real-world problems in order to help the businesses. The work that students have done in previous years has resulted in direct changes and improvements made in many of the businesses. In the past students have worked with:
- A fashion designer who has designed items for the Queen
- An international shortbread company
- Local craft breweries
- A Highland bakery which provided baked goods for the 2012 London Olympics
- Local social enterprises which supported youth
- A travel company
Students will participate in cultural excursions and activities such as:
- Day-long trips to Isle of Skye and the Cairngorms National Park
- Shorter excursions to nearby sites such as Loch Ness and Urquhart Castle, Culloden and Tomatin Whiskey Distillery
- Participating in your own Highland Games, a classic Scottish sports tradition
- Attending a traditional Scottish Burns Supper/Ceilidh
No classes are scheduled on the weekends, and there is one four-day weekend built into the program for students who wish to travel to mainland Europe or to other parts of Scotland and the UK. There are several direct flights from Inverness to cities like London, Belfast, Dublin, and Amsterdam! There are also trains and buses that run regularly to places like Edinburgh and Glasgow.
May 28-June 27, 2019 in Scotland. Please plan to arrive in Scotland on May 29th (departing the US on the 28th) to begin the program. Courses will also have an online portion which will need to be completed prior to arriving in Scotland.
Students will stay in homestays with local Scottish families in Inverness or in residence halls. If staying with a host family, two meals a day are included each day (with the exception of excursion days). If staying in the campus residence hall, two meals a day are provided on weekdays only (with the exception of excursion days).
$5700 includes housing, insurance, partial meal plan, city bus pass, tuition for one 4-credit class, and program excursions and activities. Does not include flight, personal expenses, or meals on excursion days (or weekends, if staying in the residence hall). If a student chooses to take a second class, s/he will owe an additional $996 (tuition for the second class).
