OVERVIEW

WI in Scotland
Students applying to Wisconsin in Scotland with completed applications by January 23rd will be eligible to apply for a scholarship through the Stout Foundation.

UW-Stout, UW-River Falls, and UW-Superior jointly operate a study center for Wisconsin students in the town of Dalkeith, thirty minutes from Edinburgh, the capital of Scotland. Courses are taught by British faculty and faculty from the participating universities. All courses are designed to take advantage of the Scottish setting. Many cultural activities are included in each program.

Host Family Program
Because all students enrolled for the semester are required to live at and attend classes in the Dalkeith House, a very significant and rewarding component of the WIS program is the host family program. Past students have found that an opportunity to get to know a local family enhances their understanding of the Scottish culture.
 
Location: Dalkeith, Scotland, United Kingdom

The Wisconsin in Scotland program takes you to Dalkeith, a bustling village just six short miles southeast of Edinburgh in the Midlothian region of Scotland. Edinburgh and the surrounding region provide an ideal environment for educational programs. The richness of British history, politics, literature, poetry, arts, and other subjects come alive at every turn. Edinburgh, the capital of Scotland since 1124, is a classic European city. There the medieval grandeur of Old Town, crowned by Edinburgh Castle and Holyrood Palace, joins harmoniously with the modern attractions of New Town. The natural beauty of the Scottish landscape and its coastline provide a majestic background for exploration, education, and enrichment.

The program takes you to Dalkeith House in Dalkeith, Scotland. The facility, an 18th century manor house known to the Scots as Dalkeith Palace, was rebuilt in 1701 on the remains of the original Dalkeith Castle built in the 12th century. The "Palace" is a magnificent example of late William & Mary architecture and is renowned for its fine oak paneling and carvings. The house is spacious and provides room for residence life and food service facilities, classrooms, offices, lounge areas, laundry and recreation rooms.

 
 

ACADEMICS

WI in Scotland
Academic and course information may be found on the Wisconsin in Scotland website.
 
Classes are taught in the Dalkeith House by Scottish instructors and U.S. instructors. Classes are small and usually involve a combination of lecture and discussion. Several field trips are included to supplement the classroom experience.
 
Career Exploration in an International Setting
Students will have the opportunity to build their career exploration portfolio and international professional network throughout the entire term in this self-driven course that is supported by an on-site course mentor. This course will take the place of another module and students will have course commitments that extend beyond the Career Exploration module timeframe. You may find more information about this course in the fall and spring term course schedules.
 
Internships
The Wisconsin in Scotland program offers a limited number of unpaid internships for junior and senior students accepted for the fall or spring semesters. Please note that UK immigration requires students completing internships to obtain a Tier IV visa at a current cost approximately $450. Students must have a clear sense of the type of placement or experience they are looking for.
