I loved my study abroad at University of Edinburgh! The city, university, fellow students, and Scottish culture are all amazing. The University has a decent number of study abroad students, so they are very accommodating and it is easy to fit into the culture in just a semester. Because all instruction is in English, the courses fit well with home college curricula- I was able to get many distribution and major credits from the program.
Arcadia runs a decent 3 day orientation, multiple weekend trips throughout the semester (I was too busy with my new Scottish friends to go on any!) and academic and logistic support if necessary.
I would definitely recommend studying in Edinburgh to anyone interested!!!!
