The Principia Consortium represents a diverse group of small liberal arts colleges and universities whose Honors programs emphasize intellectual and cultural enrichment for students enrolled in them.  A principal purpose for the Principia Consortium is to create and support a unique " Honors at Glasgow" International Studies program.  The University of Glasgow, founded in 1451 and internationally recognized institution with prestigious programs in the sciences and humanities, in Glasgow, Scotland, has agreed to create special courses and other special study and cultural opportunities for the Honors students who are a part of the Principia Consortium.  Working together, the Consortium has created a truly exciting international, educational, and cultural experience that will significantly enhance the quality of undergraduate education among the Principia Consortium schools.

 

In addition to courses offered at U Glasgow, students have the unique opportunity to study one of your classes in partnership with specialised institutions based in the city of Glasgow.

Students may study 2 of the following for 20 SCOTCATS each:

  • Black and white photography
  • Figurative sculpture
  • Rendering the human form - drawing into painting

at the Glasgow School of Art with the Studio Art Study Abroad Programme (SASAP).  These courses are flexible so that students at advanced levels may participate. Students are not required to submit a portfolio. Further details are available in the GSA Brochure

Students also have the opportunity to study Piping with the National Piping Centre.  Details can be found in the Piping Centre Course Descriptor

Glasgow has a Teacher Education program to prepare instructors to work in schools; arrangements are being made for visiting students to take these classes and participate in student teaching. 

 

Housing

On campus accommodation is guaranteed, but Glasgow cannot promise students' first choices. Housing during the pre-term orientation may not be the same room students will live in during the regular semester.

 

Please note pre-term orientation housing is not included in the semester accommodation fee. Students will pay £15-20 per night during orientation for accommodation.

 

Application process: Students will receive a student residence guide and application form with the offer letter, which will also contain an access code to begin the application process. Students coming to the University and to the city of Glasgow for the first time, or if it is likely that they would have difficulty in finding alternative forms of accommodation, will be given priority.

Accommodation is described at http://www.gla.ac.uk/services/residentialservices/undergraduate/fees/
