The University of Glasgow has nine faculties and nearly 100 majors. Seven of the faculties are normally open to study abroad students: Arts (including Divinity); Biomedical & Life Sciences; Education; Engineering; Information and Mathematical Sciences; Law, Business and Social Sciences; and Physical Sciences. Study abroad students can access most modules across the university. In particular, level 1 and 2 modules are appropriate for study abroad students. Complete details are available online at the Study Abroad Course Catalogue page: http://www.gla.ac.uk/international/abroadexchange/studyabroadprogramme/coursesavailable/.
Students have the opportunity to combine study at the University of Glasgow with unique courses in studio art at the Glasgow School of Art and piping at the National Piping Centre. More information is available on the Study Abroad Course Catalogue page.
For more information about how specific University of Glasgow courses have transferred back to UW-Eau Claire, go to: http://www.uwec.edu/oakdev/rar850/C8870.htm. Please keep in mind that this is a historical record of past course equivalences. There is no guarantee that the same courses will be offered in the future, or that they will be offered during the term in which you are abroad.
Students can also participate in the Service Learning Program that is part of the Department of Urban Studies. Students in this program take the specially designed module Service in the Community with one other "sister" module, which provides the academic framework for the service placement. The service placement is six hours a week for eight weeks. The Service Learning Program requires all students to provide an official State police statement that you have no criminal record. All students participating in this program must enter the UK under the Tier 4 General Student Visa. Due to these unique legal and immigration requirements, students should meet with the UK study abroad coordinator prior to applying.

The Glasgow academic year is divided into 2 semesters. Semester 1 runs from mid September until mid December. Semester 2 runs from mid January through late May. Semester 2 includes a 3 week spring break. Exact dates will be available the semester prior to participation.
