You will receive individualized support from ASA’s advisors and staff throughout your program application process, while you are abroad, and when you return.

Before you depart we will work with you and the staff at your home institution to help you prepare for our time abroad. We are happy to speak with you to discuss ways you can maximize your experience in your host country. You will also receive a detailed pre-departure orientation guide which will help you know what to pack, what to expect when you arrive, and how to stay safe while abroad.

Once you arrive in Edinburgh you will participate in our onsite orientation with the other ASA students in your group. ASA’s site director will introduce you to your host city and culture through orientation and multiple events during the program. Our intentionally small group sizes allow ASA’s students to get to know one another and are an aspect of our programs for which our alumni consistently express their appreciation. You will have opportunities to meet other students and lots of new people through your classes or social events.

ASA programs include excursions, volunteer opportunities, housing, meals, academic credits, transcripts, mobile phones, airport pick-up on arrival, medical insurance and more! Contact ASA or your advisor to learn about ASA’s Price Guarantee for all of our programs.
Watch the city transform around you during July as you take your academic classes and festival season comes alive in Edinburgh. You will take “Business in the Arts” courses at the University of Edinburgh Business School, attend site visits and have guest speakers with students from the US and around the world. Subject areas include: Business Policy & Strategy, Marketing, Operations, Management, Accounting, Finance, Management of Human Resources, Enterprise in the Arts and Culture Industry.

The academic period is followed by a month-long internship with Edinburgh Festival Fringe, the world’s largest performing arts festival including theatre, comedy, dance, musicals, operas, music, exhibitions and events. Internship placement is guaranteed and strong dedication to the intern role is expected. This program is ideal for students who are majoring in theatre or those in any major who have some experience and a strong interest in working in the field of performing arts.

This program won the GoAbroad Innovation Award for the internship category in 2012!
"ASA was very involved in the entire study abroad process. They give you more than the typical study abroad package. ASA is always available to answer questions and help you through the entire study abroad process." Ashley Grewe – University of Minnesota, Duluth
