Arthurs Seat, a dormant volcano that dominates Hollyrood Park is just a short walk from the city center, and it, along with the iconic Edinburgh Castle, flank this great, ancient city. The Edinburgh Bay represents the third flank and in between, there is so much to do! Walking, of course, so many options for walkers and hikers in and around Edinburgh and each walk seems to have hidden monuments or 15th century chapels or striking woodlands, and always, always the incredible views.
Then there is Vintage Shopping: sounds strange but Edinburgh is kind of known for its Vintage, so head over to West Port Street and Grassmarket Street. You will nab seriously one – of – a – kind finds to bring back home, that will remind you forever of your time with us in Scotland. We have to note here an Adelante HQ favorite, if not over-visited now, café, The Elephant House. A haunt over the years for many authors, most notably J.K. Rowling wrote much of her Harry Potter series here. With that killer angled view of the Castle, it’s hard not to be inspired (don’t forget to go into the bathrooms, with pen in hand, and add your name to the “Dumbledore’s Army” list that now stretches up and down two walls and across the door frame!)
Adelante’s Observation & Research in Scotland aims to match serious students with academic observational and research assignments in a variety of different sectors. All program assignments are full-time hours, 5 days a week. Weekends are free for candidates to travel and explore the beauty of Scotland.
Our programs in Scotland have been developed with an experienced university specialist who has secured student internships in Scotland and throughout Europe for almost 20 years. Placements are within prestigious Policy Centers and Academic Institutions and Private Veterinary practices.
Applying early is strongly encouraged, as only a limited number of spots are available within each field.
Adelante continues to collaborate with a prestigious Scottish college specializing in animal care, agriculture and land-based studies, in order to offer a 4 week summer program in Equine Studies for Summer 2020. The campus is on one of the largest college estates, based in the rolling hills just outside the country’s vibrant capital, Edinburgh.
This special four-week summer program is available for animal science and pre-veterinary students, as well as those students who enjoy equestrianism. However, no previous equestrian experience is required. The achievement of these two units will give you 6 hours of US credit, fully transferable, towards your degree at your home University or College (see your own college advisor for confirmation).
In addition to classroom instruction, students will be involved in practical and hands-on experiences, with the opportunity to discover equestrianism ‘British’ style, and experience both classical and English-style riding skills.
Students will learn about the history and development of golf and enhance their coaching and performance skill. The week of work experience at St. Andrews/Gleneagles will highlight the four-week program.
Visits and tee times are scheduled at Dukes Golf Course at St. Andrews, Gleneagles, Kingarrock Hickory Golf Course and others. Students are advised to contact their academic counselor to review the descriptions of the three courses for appropriate transfer academic credit.
The program will be held just north of Edinburgh at Scotland’s Rural College (SRUC) Elmwood campus in the old market town of Cupar, alongside rich rural scenery, farmland and country estates. The SRUC Elmwood Campus is recognized as a national and international center for golf-related specialisms.
