About Summer in Scotland

Glasgow, Scotland's largest city, is a lively place to live and study. It offers excellent shopping, nightlife, museums, parks, and galleries. The friendly, welcoming multicultural city was recently voted "politest city in the UK."

Founded in 1451, the University of Glasgow consistently ranks as one of the UK's most highly rated schools. The university is host to more than 20,000 students from over 100 countries and offers an exceptional breadth of academic choice across the physical and life sciences, social sciences, and humanities.

Started in 2014, the University of Glasgow's International Summer School offers a wide range of classes and hosts hundreds of US and international students each June and July.

Housing & Meals

For the summer progam, you will be housed in university flats. Accommodation in your own room is included. Rooms are part of self-contained flats including a well-equipped kitchen and laundry facilities. Normally 4–5 other students will share the flat.

The flats are located in the University’s student accommodation, which is within easy walking distance of both the main campus where classes will take place and the renowned West End of Glasgow.


In addition to some summer modules containing built-in excursions, the University of Glasgow arranges a number of social activities during the summer program.
