Study Abroad in Glasgow, Scotland

Spend your fall in Scotland! This semester abroad program is designed to build your culinary skills through a combination of cultural and academic immersion as a culinary arts exchange student at the City of Glasgow College.

Students enroll in a program of study for cookery or professional cookery at City of Glasgow College (COGC) for one trimester (12 weeks). This program is designed to develop the student’s knowledge and skills in culinary or baking/pastry required for a letter of recognition credential from AACC. Each student will attend classes four or five days each week, based upon the trimester requirements. Students also must complete the academic coursework successfully as outlined in the Scottish Qualifications Authority course documents. In addition to culinary and baking/pastry coursework, students will complete a portfolio on the experience to include recipes, photos, field trips and other items unique to this program. Students also must complete a four-page research paper to complete Internship (HRM 275) successfully.
