Veritas Christian Study Abroad in Scotland: Glasgow & Stirling

Students will choose from programs in either Glasgow or Stirling to study abroad in Scotland and join local ministries and churches.

Glasgow is the largest city in Scotland and known throughout the world for its stunning architecture, friendly locals, and rich history. It is packed with parks, diverse shopping centers, and free museums leaving visitors with plenty to experience. The city has an average of 130 music events a week ranging from pop to rock to traditional Celtic.

Stirling is one of Scotland's most historic cities, which many major battles for Scottish independence took place in and around.  Lush and green, Stirling is often called "The Gateway to the Highlands", sitting atop rolling hills and situated near a beautiful loch inhabited with local wildlife. The city is extremely student-oriented, pedestrian friendly, and offers all of the amenities of a large cosmopolitan city. It is also only about 45 minutes by train from Glasgow or Edinburgh giving students easy access to both cities for a day of exploration.
