Study Abroad Program Options for Perimeter College Students

European Council, Edinburgh Scotland: Come join us to live and study for two weeks in historic Edinburgh, the capital of Scotland and UNESCO City of Literature and home to two World Heritage Sites. Come walk the same streets as did historic figures as Mary Queen of Scots, Adam Smith, and William Wallace, and see the sites that inspired such literary figures as Harry Potter, Sherlock Holmes, John Rebus, and Dr Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. Once known as “Auld Reekie,” Edinburgh today is world renowned for its architecture, university, and castle as well as for producing some of the world’s most well-known writers such as JK Rowling, Walter Scott, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, and Robert Louis Stevenson. In addition to such historic sites as the Royal Mile, the National Museum of Scotland, Edinburgh Castle, Calton Hill, and Greyfriar’s Kirk, Edinburgh also boasts wonderful restaurants, lively pubs, a thriving theatre and music scene, and serves as the center of Scottish politics. Students can enjoy street performances, stroll parks such as the Meadows or Princes Street Gardens, watch a local rugby or football match, listen to local music and comedians, or brave the summit of Arthur’s Seat (the site which inspired James Hutton, the founder of modern geology.) In addition, students in the program will also visit cities such as Glasgow, Stirling, and St. Andrews as well as the Scottish Highlands, lochs, glens and whisky distilleries. Students can also take advantage of Edinburgh’s location and rail, bus and air transportation opportunities to visit places such as Aberdeen, the Orkney Islands, Manchester, York, Newcastle or even London. As the French writer Voltaire once wrote, “We look to Scotland for all our ideas of civilization,” and now you can, too.

European Council, St. Petersburg, Russia: Few cities offer the stunning attractions of St. Petersburg, City of the Tsars. Created by Peter the Great as his “Window on Europe,” St. Petersburg is often referred to as the Venice of the north as it combines its Russian heritage with a European outlook. As one of the world’s architectural treasures, the city provides a backdrop filled with gold-domed cathedrals and Baroque palaces, museums, and ornate government buildings all of which seem to flow into the canals and waterways that divide the city. The natural beauty of the city is enhanced in June and July as the city experiences “White Nights,” a blending of twilight into dawn giving the city almost 24 hours of daylight.  The program offers excursions to several of the palaces and stately homes of Russian tsars that surround the city including Peterhoff, a magnificent palace with fountains flowing down to the Baltic, and Catherine’s Palace with its renowned amber room. Experience the music, art, literature, good food and great entertainment offered by this splendid city, St. Petersburg, Russia.

European Council, Berlin, Germany: Live and study for five weeks in Germany’s capital city where you can explore the rich culture and history of this cosmopolitan city that holds a complex and crucial place in modern European history. Youthful, artistic, and hip, Berlin has traveled a path that led from the defining cultural avant-garde of the Weimar Republic to the devastation of World War II, from a divided city symbolizing the Cold War to today’s reunified and renewed capital. A city once divided, Berlin lies at the heart of Germany – literally and figuratively. While it is the second most populous city in Europe (metropolitan area notwithstanding), it maintains a more tranquil feel than other large cities, as 1/3 of the city is composed of forests, gardens, and parks. Berlin is not only the political capital of Germany, but arguably one of Europe’s capitals of art, culture, and politics. Designated as an UNESCO “City of Design”, it possesses amazing architecture, cuisine, museums, and music making it a top destination for young travelers and students. Imagine yourself following in the footsteps of Goethe, Beethoven, Martin Luther, Albert Einstein, and other major figures that have helped shape Western Culture.Dates: June 29 to August 2Cost: $5,300 Berlin Group The package cost of $5,300 for the five-week program includes:

European Council, Paris, France: Paris, one of the oldest and most fascinating cities in the world, has fired the imagination of artists, writers, and students for centuries. La “Ville Lumière”, Paris is home to countless museums, cafés, and medieval streets that wind around contemporary architecture.
