Program Description:

University of Glasgow Honors (Principia Consortium)

This program is offered ONLY to Augsburg students who are accepted into our Honors Program.

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 such as The Scottish Enlightenment: Ideas and Influences and other special study and cultural opportunities for the Honors students who are a part of the Principia Consortium. 



The Scottish Enlightenment: Ideas and Influences course aims to introduce students to the rich intellectual and cultural heritage of Scotland and its lasting influence on world culture and contemporary thought. It is a compulsory course designed to complement the different choices available to Consortium students who study honors at Glasgow and is taught by academics from a variety of disciplines at the University – including Natural History, Philosophy, Politics, Economics, Natural Science, Literature, Medicine and the Arts.

In addition to the Scottish Enlightenment course, students will register for 2-3 more courses during the semester at Glasgow. In addition to having access to any available course at the University, there are also several unique courses available to Principia Consortium students.

These unique offerings include:

• Functional Anatomy for Pre-Med/Pre-Health Students
• Science Courses including: Biochemistry, Biology, Organic Chemistry and Physics
• Education Courses and Short-term Placements
• Service Learning
• Medical Humanities
• Nursing and Veterinary Biosciences

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. 



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.
