Glasgow, Scotland is the third-largest city in the UK. Glasgow is packed with cultural attractions, impressive architecture, fantastic shopping, and a year-round program of world-class events.
The University of Glasgow (UG) was founded in Scotland in 1451 and is an internationally recognized institution with prestigious programs in the sciences and humanities. Creighton's affiliate program in Scotland is open to a limited number of students each year. Visiting students are fully integrated into the student body and take courses alongside international and Scottish students. Each year, the University of Glasgow welcomes approximately 3,000 international students from over 24 countries!
The Fall Semester typically runs from Early September until Mid-December. The Spring Semester runs from Early January until the end of May. Semester dates for exchange students can be found here. The academic calendar can be found here.
COURSES: Honors Program: Students who are part of the Honors Program and who carry at least a 3.5 GPA will take part in a special program at Glasgow along with other honors students. This program is established through the Principia Consortium. Creighton students complete between 60-80 (Glasgow) credits, 20 of which are earned in the core honors course: The Scottish Enlightenment: Ideas and Influences.
Semester 1 (Fall) students are recommended to enroll in the Service-Learning course. A Tier 4 visa would be required to participate.
From Fall 2018 onward, courses taken while studying abroad will transfer back to Creighton University with a letter grade. These grades will be factored into your Creighton GPA. Grade equivalency charts will be published on the study abroad website in early 2018 to help you understand how the grade abroad will reflect on your Creighton transcript. This change is in contrast to the former "Pass/Fail" grade policy.
Students will be assisted by the University of Glasgow's international student support team. The team organizes an orientation program and coordinates events. The staff are also available for appointments to assist the international students during their stay.
Semester 1 (Fall semester): Move in date 1st September 2018 – End date 31st December 2018
Semester 2 (Spring semester): Move in date 31st December 2018 – End date 7 June 2019
