Program Description:

Spend part of your summer in Glasgow!

glasgwo phlashThe Glasgow International Summer School (ISSS) is a great way to take a summer course abroad!  Study at one of the top 1% of universities in the world while immersing yourself in the ancient history of both Glasgow University (founded in 1451) and of Scotland itself. 

Glasgow is also close to other major cities in the area and plenty of festivals, music, and other entertainment for you!


Choose from 13 different programs and spend 1-8 weeks at Glasgow University!  Sessions run an average of 3-4 weeks each between June 11th and August 10th, 2018.  Choose one course that fits you best:
Details on the course options are found on this website or on the PDF file: 2017glasgowISSS.pdf.  Most courses equal approximately 3.75 UWGB credits (15 Scotland credits), though some are worth more.  See the UWGB Credit Conversion Chart on this website for equivalencies of other courses. 

In addition, several local and weekend excursions are included in the program cost.  Some of these may include:
  • Scottish Night Out
  • Edinburgh
  • Scottish Highlands
  • Loch Ness
