I have been meaning to write about some of the potential advantages of attending college in another country but just haven’t had time. But the New York Times has a good article today about colleges in Scotland and particularly about the University of St. Andrews and the University of Edinburgh. This article discusses some of the benefits, and disadvantages, of attending college in Scotland. You do need a New York Times account to view the article, but registration for the account is free.
While the cost of these colleges is not cheap, they are generally considerable less expensive than most of the private highly selective colleges in this country. And while a different type of education than you might receive at most colleges in the US, they are nevertheless excellent educational institutions.
If you are looking for top academic opportunities with a somewhat lower price tag, check out these Scottish Universities. Later this week I will try to get a post off about attending college in Canada, another excellent option for American college students.
