Orientation in Edinburgh
Before going to St. Andrews, the whole IFSA Buter Scotland (St. Andrews, Edinburgh, and Glasgow) program meets in Edinburgh for a couple of days of orientation at the Apex International Hotel. I was pleasantly surprised by orientation, it was well thought out with just the right amount of essential knowledge to study in Scotland. The topics ranged from banking, cell phones, history of Scotland, culture shock, money, to University specific information. Its easy to see that the IFSA Scotland team has been doing this for many years, and know what study abroad students need to know. Outside of orientation, there’s time to get to know all the people you will be going to school with, and get to spend time exploring Edinburgh with them.
