A SHORT-TERM STUDY ABROAD IN ENGLAND & SCOTLAND
Applications are now being reviewed on a rolling basis (10/24/23)
No applications will be accepted after November 1, 2023.
UNF's College of Education and Human Services and College of Arts and Sciences are pleased to offer a short-term study abroad trip to England and Scotland. This roughly fifteen (15) day experience is designed to give American college students - especially those in education, social work, and psychology - some insights into the schools and social systems in the UK. We will start by visiting Edinburgh and end by visiting London. In between, we will spend time at two college campuses (Teesside University in Middlesbrough and University of Chester in Chester) where we will interact with UK faculty and college students within the aforementioned disciplines. We will also spend time in local school and social service settings to witness how those contexts compare and contrast to those in the United States.
If you have any questions after reviewing the information on this page and from scrolling through the informational slides below, please contact the trip leaders.
For more information on the UK experience, please contact John W. White (Education & Trip Lead) or Courtney Boise (Psychology and Social Work Lead).
You do not have to major in these programs to participate in the experience but you will have to enroll in one of our associated courses, PSY 4995 or EDF 4995: Special Topics in Education and Psychology: A Study Abroad in the United Kingdom. The former is a three (3) credit class while latter can be taken at variable credits (1-3 credits).
UNF is partnering with two universities in the UK:
The University of Chester and Teesside University.

Our latest budget estimate is $5,750 per student.
This estimate includes airfare, lodging, in-country rail, included excursions/tours, individual Oyster Cards for travel in London, transfers to and from airports, events on our partner campuses, insurance, an emergency fund, and two faculty travel leaders. It also includes an estimate of what students will independently spend for their meals excepting free breakfasts, an included end-of-experience dinner, and a lunch provided by our Teesside partners (food costs are of course dependent upon students' tastes). Potential travelers should note that costs may change slightly based upon the costs of airfare.
We strongly encourage travelers to look at potential scholarship funding for study abroad via UNF's SAILS Program as well as looking at possible funding through the UNF Foundation. Travelers may also want to talk to Financial Aid about getting some of the trip costs included in their summer financial aid package.
