Entrepreneurship Summer Program in Scotland – Travelling to Scotland for a summer program is a once in a life time opportunity that cannot be missed. I love to travel so I took advantage of the an international experience by arriving three days early to Scotland by myself. I will also be travelling around Europe after the program with my sister. Why not? Knowing that I would be by myself was extremely nerve racking but as soon as I landed in Edinburgh I was calm and excited to take the time to reflect on myself.

So far, my experience has been overwhelming, fun and challenging to say the least. I have met so many unforgettable people during my travels that I hope to stay in contact with. Also, I have been given the chance to get to know the three other girls from Nova Scotia better.

During this two week program we have attended lectures for preparation of our project at Robert Gordon University and have participated in guided tours in Aberdeen as well as a day trip to Edinburgh. A lot of free time especially in the evenings has given us all the opportunity to grow closer as friends. Language barriers can be difficult but it is part of an international experience that we can take with us in the future when we further pursue a business career. When I one day work for an international business company, I will look back on this experience and all I have learned. The faculty are extremely knowledgeable in their areas of business and as a current student in business administration I feel that I will be successful in my future endeavours.

I can without a doubt highly recommend this international program to any students who are thinking of applying. You will leave Scotland or whichever program you apply for with life long friends.
