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.
Each module (class) you successfully complete will earn you 10 SCQF credits, which are the equivalent of 3 US semesters or 5 ECTS credits. For the 2018 International Summer School, you will have the following course module options:
