Glasgow, Scotland (UK)
The University of Glasgow was founded in 1451 and is an internationally recognized institution with prestigious programs in the sciences and humanities. Each year, the University of Glasgow welcomes approximately 3,000 international students from over 24 countries! Any Creighton student may study at the University of Glasgow. Students who are part of the Honor's Program at Creighton, however, follow a special curriculum at Glasgow established through the Principia Consortium.
Honor's Student Program at Glasgow:
Eligibility: Minimum 3.5 GPA. Must be a participant of the Creighton Honor's Program. Students must meet all other Study Abroad Eligibility as outlined in Creighton's Study Abroad Policies & Procedures.
Financial Aid: Participants will pay tuition and fees directly to Creighton University and receive the equivalent at the University of Glasgow. Students will be responsible for room and board fees, and all traveling expenses. If eligible, institutional aid and federal aid are portable. However, once the Creighton aid is subtracted from Glasgow's total bill, there must be at least $3,000 that is paid by federal financial aid or out of pocket. Tuition Remission and FACHEX Tuition Exchange may be portable, but are subject to the $3,000 clause as stated above. Please check with the CU Financial Aid Office for specific inquiries. Participants are also required to purchase Creighton's insurance for international activity (purchased through OIP).
Courses: Students will complete one Honor's Course entitled, "Ideas and Influences of the Scottish Enlightenment: 18th to the 21st Centuries" and be able to choose 2-4 additional courses (modules) selected from University of Glasgow's course offerings. For additional course information, please visit the Honor's Program website.
Program Duration: Fall semester usually runs from early-September to early-December. Spring semester usually runs from mid-January to late-March.
On-Site Assistance: Students will be assisted by the University of Glasgow's international student support team. The team organizes an orientation program and coordinates events. The staff are also available for appointments to assist the international students during their stay.
How to Apply: Students must first complete the CU Proposal to Study Abroad and the CU Study Abroad Course Approval Form (internal documents). Once these are complete, students will then work with the Creighton Honors Directory to complete and submit the University of Glasgow application.
Deadlines: The CU Proposal to Study Abroad for Fall semester participation is March 1st and for Spring semester participation is October 1st. However, it is strongly recommend that interested students submit their Proposals as early as possible in order to allow enough time to complete the University of Glasgow application by the required deadline.
