The universities of Aberdeen, Glasgow, and Stirling invite U.S. high school counselors to join us for the Scotland Counselor Tour 2018.

This is a unique opportunity to visit 3 Scottish campuses and tour facilities, meet with staff and students, and find out more about the Scottish higher education system. The itinerary also includes a day of social activities to allow counselors to explore some of Scotland.

The program includes transportation between the universities, 5 nights’ accommodation (Sunday-Thursday), some meals, and the day excursion. Unfortunately, the universities are unable to assist with flight expenses but participants will be transported back to Glasgow at the conclusion of the tour.
