HIGHLIGHTS As the capital of the Republic of Ireland, Dublin is one of the liveliest cities in Europe. With one of the youngest populations comprising people from many different parts of Europe and the globe, the city has a full and varied cultural and intellectual life, which brings together the best of traditional Ireland and of modern Europe. Dublin is particularly fortunate to have many theaters, museums and galleries throughout the city. Famous for its literary and musical tradition, Ireland’s capital has been home to well known writers, playwrights, actors, and musicians for many years. A particular feature is the tradition of live music in every conceivable venue, from street artists to the National Concert Hall to the many pubs where traditional Irish music still flourishes. In the literary field, the contribution of native sons has been outstanding, with Jonathan Swift, Oliver Goldsmith, Oscar Wilde, George Bernard Shaw, W.B. Yeats, and Samuel Beckett amongst the most prominent. Why Dublin? Capital of Ireland A city that feels more like a large village Strong artistic, literary, and musical traditions Top tier universities Semester, year, summer, and graduate programs Hub for European travel Famous pubs and restaurants Charming Irish hospitality Vast course selection across many majors

The university offers courses in the liberal arts and humanities, business, engineering, sciences, and much more!

Parliamentary Program (Semester)
This program begins with coursework and other activities, designed to provide participants with an initial grounding in British and Scottish politics, society and culture. 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.
