For instance, a visit to one of Scotland's main sporting venues helps contextualise your studies in Sports Management, and your Scottish history module comes alive with a trip to infamous battlefields across Scotland.
Other trips have included tours of Stirling Castle, the Edinburgh Dungeons and even a trip to Northern Ireland's capital city, Belfast.
