With its around-the-clock buzz of activity, Edinburgh is an ideal location for any student. On Semester in Edinburgh, you'll have easy access to all Edinburgh has to offer while studying at Edinburgh Napier University, located in the heart of the old city. The city of Edinburgh is truly amazing, combining medieval Old Town, neoclassical N... read more

With great public transit and a set up that puts most things within easy walking distance of each other, Edinburgh is a city that doesn't require a program of structured events to enjoy, though a list of things other people have recommended is handy to have. A good map will help with planning, but will most likely only cover Old and New Town, so Google Maps, or something similar is a good resource to have. During my stay, I didn't require any of ...

scotland is a beautiful place, and edinburgh is a beautiful city. my roommates and i enjoyed it immensely. cis, however, may not be the best option to get here. when i arrived i was told we would be doing events at least every month. i'm still waiting for the first one, which could be fun (i leave in two weeks). the beds at this place are like sleeping on rocks, if the rocks have springs that attack you while you sleep. furthermore, as living...

I wish that there was some magical word or sentence that I could come up with that would sum up my life for the past 5 months. Something easy that I could project outward onto everyone around me that would sum up how truly magnificent and extraordinary it has been. I'm at a loss because I know I can't adequately describe how beautiful the (very frequent) rain is or how it feels to stand at the top of the city or how liberating it is to know that ... Read more

Edinburgh was an amazingly beautiful city, and Scotland is, to me, Europe's little secret. The city-feel and countryside are within an hour's drive from each other, so there's something for everyone. However, be wary of the schooling differences. Teacher's expectations are hazy, grades seem to be assigned randomly, and Americans stick out like sore thumbs. It is also difficult to befriend locals- they are friendly but will not make the first step... Read more

I loved studying in Edinburgh. CIS coordinated everything with my home university, and that was so nice. It allowed me to truly enjoy my time abroad. There weren't any program trips or anything like that, and CIS' involvement pretty much stopped once I got there, but I liked that because it allowed me to enjoy Scotland on my own without having any commitments.

Studying abroad in Edinburgh, Scotland was one of the best ideas i've ever had; It has been my absolute favorite semester or college--traveling throughout the country and the rest of Europe with amazing new friends-- However, the CIS program is a complete waste of money when you could do a much cheaper exchange program for the exact results.

I'm not exaggerating when I say that studying abroad was the best thing I've ever done in my life. I was extremely nervous to come here at first in January, I had no idea what I was getting myself into because I am usually a home body. The second I got off the plane I met girls who were living in the Wrights Houses with me and we became close friends for the rest of the trip. I met the best people here, and explored the beautiful country side ... Read more

Edinburgh Napier was a decent school, but it lacked anything other than the absolute necessary things needed to study at a university. There was no extra help offered to study abroad students, and teachers would sometimes actively avoid giving any extra clarity to anyone in need of it. The school itself had enough resources if you look for them, but don't expect anyone to help you with anything. It's up to you to figure out what they are looking ... Read more
