HIGHLIGHTS
Adjacent to Dubai, Sharjah is the third largest of the seven Emirates that make up the United Arab Emirates (UAE). The UAE is located on the eastern side of the Arabian Peninsula, bordered to the south and west by Saudi Arabia and to the east by the Sultanate of Oman. Like its neighbor Qatar, the UAE has one of the strongest economies in the region and the world. The Emirates of the UAE have made great strides in reinvesting their wealth with an eye toward economic and environmental sustainability.

Sharjah is known as the “Cultural Capital of the UAE,” and has quite a lively history itself. Uniquely located on world trade routes and the only Emirate with direct access to both the Arabian Gulf and the Gulf of Oman, Sharjah has developed from a small trading town, relying on fishing and pearl diving, to one of the most modern, dynamic commercial and trade centers in the region.

Classes are taught by academic staff of the Academy of Government, part of the School of Social and Political Science at University of Edinburgh. The program then continues with several weeks comprised of an internship placement with a Member of Scottish Parliament (MSP).

HIGHLIGHTS
The dramatic and romantic appeal of Edinburgh is endless, set atop its volcanic crags with medieval cobble-stoned streets, a majestic castle and a skyline of turrets, domes and spires. It is easy to see where the inspiration for Harry Potter came from! The elegant Georgian facades of the New Town are a contrast to the winding, twisting alleys and hidden courtyards of the medieval Old Town. Edinburgh, Scotland’s capital city, is not just a historic city, it is also forward looking, seat of the Scottish Parliament and boasting a vibrant cultural scene of live music, performing arts, galleries and museums and plenty of buzz. It is a great place for students, who make up 20% of the population and is home to one of the largest arts festivals in the world. Overlooked by the extinct volcano of Arthur’s Seat, sitting in the open parkland of Holyrood Park, Edinburgh is one of the greenest cities in the UK.
