I don't want to leave

10/10

I participated in the ecology and countryside management branches at the SRUC Oatridge campus. The lecturers that provided me with projects were so incredibly helpful. Anytime I needed help or had a question there was ALWAYS someone there who went above and beyond to make sure my question was answered. Throughout my time there, I learned a lot about the ecology of Scotland and how it differs from the environment that I am used to at home. I also made some lasting friendships with some of the locals that I met while staying in the dorms. Scotland is full of experiences for any type of person, and it was an experience that I would urge more people to take part in.

How can this program be improved?

The best improvement that I could suggest for this program is more help or detailed information on public transportation, especially at the SRUC Oatridge campus. The campus is fairly rural and it was a little stressful trying to figure out how to get places.

A great experience

8/10

I have an amazing time here in Scotland. I got a lot of hands-on experience in the field of psychology and it started my interest in the realm of research. I was able to conduct and create some of my own experiments. The professors were able to give me a new perspective to the way that psychology applies to everyday life. The location of the apartment was stellar and so close to the most lively parts of Edinburgh. This experience has been a super helpful and interesting. Loved it!

Great Experience

7/10

The experience was very beneficial. It was important to be able to do things on your own and be able to meet other people. In this sense, I am in Agriculture, which is different then others. I was able to meet and talk to farmers or be in the office doing audits of farmers. It was interesting be able to talk about research since I also completed research on Anti-microbials in livestock during my internship. I have also took a step into Dairy Schemes since I currently work at my dairy at school. I got to look into several different sectors of agriculture and learned a lot from my two supervisors even though the last week was a little slower than the rest. While working 40 hours or more, I gained so much experience and got free tickets to the Royal Highland Show which I highly recommend for animal lovers, agriculture lovers, and adventure tenders.

How can this program be improved?

The program needs to be more careful about those they accept. As there are so many people who apply for these positions, it is important to make sure that those individuals are open-minded, friendly, and actually interested in experiencing the culture. It would have been lot of fun if everyone was involved doing activities outside of work.
Also I would try to include the transportation fee somehow (flight/bus/train) instead of each candidate finding the flight.

Experience of a Lifetime

10/10

I owe so many thanks to Adelante Abroad for allowing me to satisfy my love for travel while also getting to fully immerse myself into living in another country. All of my previous travel experience has been with a group of other students, and this was my first time traveling abroad alone. The staff at Adelante (particularly Jeramee) was so quick to answer any questions I had, whether it be from preparing for my trip to things to do while actually in Scotland.

The housing situation was better than I could have hoped. The flat myself and two other participants lived in was fully furnished and clean. Additionally, it was extremely centrally located -- SO many grocery stores, shops, bars, and restaurants were within walking distance, it made traveling without a vehicle a nonexistent problem. However, I would definitely recommend purchasing a bus pass (the Ridacard), as this allows you to travel throughout the whole city for a reasonable price.

In regards to the program itself, the staff where I did my placement (the Edinburgh Zoo) were all extremely friendly and welcoming. They were in full support of the research project I had designed and did everything in their power to help me work on and complete the project. The zoo truly did feel like my home away from home while I was here.

The aspect that really tops off the experience is the abundance of things to do while on placement. Take full advantage of your placement in Scotland!! I spent weekends traveling to the Highlands, Iceland, and London in addition to doing some sightseeing throughout the city (such as some of the many museums, the castle, etc.). I think you don't truly get the cultural experience unless you are actively trying to immerse yourself in the city and its surroundings. I wish that the Scotland program was longer than six weeks, though, because it seems like you are just settling in to the country when it is once again time to pack up and leave.

Overall, I would recommend Adelante Abroad to any independent traveler looking to not only gain work experience, but also experience life abroad in a way that might otherwise not be possible!!

How can this program be improved?

I think that the Visa situation needs to be improved. Customs became suspicious of me when I said I was going to be in Scotland for six weeks, and even after showing them the invitation letter from the zoo stating I was not working but simply "observing," they were hesitant to allow me into the country. Another one of the students on placement with me actually got held in customs due to a similar situation. Thankfully, we both made it through, but I think this needs more looking in to.

Response from Adelante Abroad

Kaitlyn, what an important and detailed review of your Adelante program, thank you, thank you. To the Visa issue you mention:
yes, with "Brexit" and also the US's current administration, travel, especially to the United Kingdom, seems to be getting more monitored. Candidates can expect, for a while at least, to get questioned at the airport, which is why we provide the customized letter from each Scottish company (in your case, the Royal Zoological Society of Scotland), inviting you to Scotland. For the past eight years, simply showing this document at the airport is enough. Lately, though there have been more and more questions to answer, as well. Everyone completed their summer programs just fine, and we here at Adelante apologize for the new rigor at customs. We will continue to educate and also to keep an eye on any new travel policy that comes out.

Was a great time!

8/10

I had an over all awesome time here in Scotland. My favorite part how ever was the social aspect of it. I spent the majority of my time with the students at Oatridge College and girls in the study abroad Equine program. I was able to join in on some of their ridding as well which was a great addition to what I was doing. The internship was also great I learned a lot about event planning and showjumping such as course design/set up. I also learned a lot about event management and all that goes into setting up various types of shows.

How can this program be improved?

The program could improve by providing more detail with what the students will actually be doing in their internship. I was place at the Scottish National Equestrian Center originally wanting to shadow an Equine Veterinarian. I was perfectly fine with the switch but would have loved to know more details about what I was going to be doing prior to coming to Scotland

Response from Adelante Abroad

Dear L, thanks SO much for your wonderful reviews. And photos too! Our reply here is in response to your comment that you wished you knew more about your work assignment at the SNEC. In the Memorandum document, which all candidates receive and sign prior to their arrival into Scotland, here is the description SNEC provided (its long sorry!):
"The student will have the opportunity to review our state of the art venue for equestrian sports and activities at the Scottish National Equestrian Center. This includes our stabling and accommodations, feeding, training and event management. The student also will visit with our staff to discuss our approach to marketing and the use of social media. Our weekly schedule of events provides the student an excellent perspective of our equine activity for all ages. The student will observe our day-to-day activities, regarding the scheduling and management of afternoon, evening and weekend events. The student will assist with weekly showjumping, dressage training and indoor event training. An inside look at our web management, online entries, management of corporate events, and our plans to attract advertisers and sponsors will add to the students understanding of the mission of our Center."
We are thinking that since this was provided in February to you, and the program began in May perhaps you forgot? The staff at SNEC were extremely happy with you for the duration of your placement, and said so in a glowing report sent after the program ended. Good job, L!

Wasted Potential

4/10

I am a pre-vet student that was interested in gaining experience in veterinary medicine that would help boost my resume for vet school application. At first glance the Veterinary Medicine Research and Observation Program looked like everything that I could have asked for. My family and I looked up reviews like these and only saw one that was of any concern. Adelante “explained” to me that this review had no factual base. Please don’t let them do this to you about my review.
Before leaving for Scotland I received a document that outlined my responsibilities. It stated, “During your visit, you will have the opportunity to see and participate in animal research at the Welcome Trust Critical Care Laboratory for Large Animals. You will have the opportunity to observe the care of horses and other large farm animals and observe modern techniques being used in clinical case management in the large and small animals undergoing major surgery and visit with our research teams and staff and other animal care clinics.” Unfortunately, the only one of these responsibilities that we were allowed to participate in was to observe modern techniques being used in clinical case management. Even more limiting was the fact that our supervisor in-country stuck us solely in the anesthesia department with little hopes of exploring other departments. This lead to a very boring experience spent standing around in one place.
The first two weeks were very educational as we worked alongside knowledgeable fourth year students and learned a lot of valuable new information. The next four weeks were a nauseating repetition of the same introductory information as new fourth year students came to anesthesia for the first time. I did my best to contact our in-country and out-of-country supervisors to speak with them about other opportunities to see something other than anesthesia. Our in-country supervisor was very inaccessible by phone and email and our out-of-country supervisor put us into contact with another clinic but we were never allowed to go and visit it.
As it may now be clear, we were unable to make contact with anyone who could tell us where to go, what to do, or what was new to see. This frustration ran over into the foretold responsibility to participate in research. Of the fourteen days that were outlined to us by our in-country supervisor as opportunities to research only two of them were actually semi-productive research days. These two days only came about because I did the investigating MYSELF to find the research center and show up there IN HOPES that I may be able to speak with someone face-to-face. When I contacted Adelante to see what if anything we could do to not miss any more of these research days than we already had and how to better access our in-country supervisor their response was, “The ‘research days’ on the schedule you received are new to us” and “in past placements, ‘research days’ were never a part of the program.” This simply does not match up with the list of responsibilities that ADELATE gave us; it CLEARY STATES that we would get the opportunity to research!!!!!! Adelante suggested that we camp outside our in-country supervisor’s office or to ask reception where he was. What good would sitting outside his office all day do other that force us to miss observation of surgeries in the hospital next door?
Fortunately, I did enjoy getting to know the residents in anesthesia because they were incredibly nice and did their best to make our experience enjoyable. I also enjoyed all of the tourist activities that we got to do on the weekends.

Wee Observation of the Placement

10/10

When I first arrived to Edinburgh, the first thing that stroke me was how friendly and supportive the citizens were. It immediately built up the excitement I had to spending 6 weeks in the city. On top of that, the accommodation that we were assigned to couldn't have been more convenient: right off the Royal Mile; the historic heart of Edinburgh that is filled with tons of things to see and do. The landlord was also extremely helpful in terms of recommending which tours we could trust. The observation program was phenomenal: the other interns had different levels of experience and came from diverse background so it was great to share our insights and perspectives on distinct experiments that we conducted.

Additionally, since I wasn't yet familiar with the process of data analysis, the professors were very helpful in guiding us through the softwares to accurately conduct experiments, collect the data and then analyze it with specific guidelines.

Traveling around Edinburgh was quite easy and I highly recommend purchasing a bus card (Ridacard) as it significantly facilitated the daily journeys and allowed me to explore around Edinburgh. There's also a bus station that has daily trips to other cities such as Glasgow, Aberdeen and Dundee for decent prices.

There were tons of activities to keep me busy in the city after our days at the lab; from film festivals to free museums to dance classes...... Meeting people is then not so difficult and you can quickly feel like you belong to the city.

If you are a person that likes to walk around beautiful scenery, explore hidden gardens in addition to loving research: what are you waiting for? This is your chance to improve your skills and challenge yourself socially! Oh and keep in mind that wee means little :)

How can this program be improved?

The cost of transportation should've been included, in my opinion, as it was a daily routine that we adopted.

Psyched about Scotland

10/10

I wasn't entirely sure what to expect headed into this program, but I definitely got everything out of it that I was looking for. The central living location was awesome for exploring around Edinburgh & our landlord was incredibly friendly and accommodating. The internship itself blew me away and was exactly the sort of experience I was looking for. All the interns and I had a lot of independence in planning our schedule at the University and working with the staff to create our own unique plan. Being we all came from different amounts of research backgrounds, it was nice that the professors tailored each of our experiences to be more specifically suited for our individual needs while still covering a range of the research process (running participants, coding data, learning new software, developing study ideas, etc.). Being in Edinburgh as well was phenomenal because there were plenty of easy ways to travel allowing me to visit the highlands, Glencoe, Loch Ness, the Isle of Skye, Manchester, and I even took a weekend trip to Venice. I would definitely recommend this program to any individual who loves a high level of independence and is looking to further enhance their research abilities-- you will not be disappointed!

How can this program be improved?

I wish the cost of transport to and from our internship site could be included in the cost of the program (this was an extra $80 that I hadn't necessarily budgeted for). I also wish we would've had a bit more socializing opportunities-- the four interns and I worked with each other all the time, but it would've been nice to meet some more of the locals.

Great International Experience!

10/10

I had a great experience in Scotland through the Research and Observation Program Adelante offers. Living accommodations were great, the apartment provided was clean and fully furnished. It was centrally located just off of the Royal Mile in Edinburgh where there were plenty of things to do, both for tourists and the locals. My internship gave me tasks which challenged me, but helped to broaden my perspective outside of American viewpoints. The Adelante staff was easily accessible if there was ever a question or concern. They were helpful and dedicated to making the experience as good as possible.

How can this program be improved?

Internship placements could be further looked into before placing students. I wasn't sure what I was working on at my internship until I arrived and expectations weren't as clearly stated as they could have been.

Edinburgh is such a wonderful town! Everywhere you look just speaks history and beauty. The people are wonderful and friendly, never once did I feel unsafe. The internship was a little out of my study realm, however, my co-workers and boss were wonderful to work with and made my experience that much better. I would definitely recommend this program to anyone who is considering it! It was such an amazing summer and I am so sad to be leaving!

Great Experience

7/10

Getting to live in Edinburgh for six weeks was a wonderful opportunity. I learned a lot through the veterinary observation program, and I got to explore a country I had never visited before. The locals were really friendly, and the city itself felt pretty safe. Overall, I wish the veterinary program had been more involved, or maybe shortened to four weeks, but I had a great time.

Wonderful Opportunity

9/10

I enjoyed my time in the UK as well as at The Royal School of Veterinary Studies. During the week, we took about a 30 minute bus ride to the hospital. Then we would observe surgery and help the anesthesiologists for about 5 or more hours a day. Professor Clutton, the program administrator, emphasized experiencing the culture. So on the weekends or when we would get an extra day off, I took trips to places such as Pitlochry, Loch Lomond, Glasgow, St. Andrews, and London. There is plenty of things to experience in the UK! This is an experience you definitely won't regret.

How can this program be improved?

The apartment management was a little frustrating due to the fact that we had to switch apartments at the end of the program because of mixed up move out days. Also, the landlord was hard to get a hold of when we needed him for apartment issues.

Bonnie Scotland!

9/10

I had the best of times studying abroad in Scotland. I met and helped out students and professors studying and researching psychology like myself. From them I learned about all kinds of research being done in their university and in the UK.
Outside of work I had plenty of time to explore the gorgeous Scottish highlands and borders! I have never seen such majestic greenery and had such soft delicious scones before. I also had a great time exploring the interesting sights of both New Town and Old Town with good friends I made while living in Scotland.
Overall a memorable time I will always cherish!

How can this program be improved?

If I had to change one thing, it might be for the program price to include transportation fees to and from the internship site.

Amazing in every way!

9/10

Living and working in Scotland is a great way to immerse yourself in the Scottish culture, both independently and with the people you meet. I enjoyed the professional aspect of it, waking up and heading to my local bakery for my morning coffee and jumping on the train to Queen Margaret university, as well as the times going out into the city and socialising with my roommates. The main highlight of my trip was the amazing weather in Edinburgh that summer... laying in the city gardens and exploring parts of town with this sunshine was incredible. I loved my experience and would recommend it to anyone!

How can this program be improved?

If I could change one thing it would be to have our apartment maintained a little better by cleaning staff. The staff were absolutely great when they came, so friendly and efficient, but it would have been better if they had come every few days instead of once a week.

Scotland was the best cultural and academic experience of my life!

10/10

I loved my time in Scotland! I got to spend every day watching unique surgeries, learning different veterinary techniques, and assisting with research. I received more hands-on experience during the Observation/Research assignment than I have in any veterinary clinic in the United States. I may even be listed as an author on a research study that is being submitted this fall. I also took a chance to travel around the UK and Ireland every weekend! There is no end to the fun stuff you can do in Edinburgh!

How can this program be improved?

The staff at the veterinary school seemed confused at first as to who I was and why I was there. They often times just assumed I was a veterinary student there at the school. It would have been nice if a few people would have been given a "heads up" as to who I was and why I was there.

The summer of my life

10/10

This program was absolutely amazing. I have learned so much from working at The Royal (Dick) Veterinary School. I was able to see more surgeries than I ever thought I would working in a general practice in the States. I have built ties with the people I worked with and I am so thankful to have had the opportunity to work with these people for 6 weeks. Living in Scotland is unbelievable and I have never been more at home in a different country in my life. The only difficulty I encountered while being in Scotland was getting sick with strep throat. It was a little confusing on which Doctor or which hospital to go to. I found that NHS 24 is where you will go at the Royal Infirmary and they are open from 6pm-8am and you must call and make an appointment before hand.

How can this program be improved?

I would have liked to get to know that I was to have a deposit on my apartment before I got there so that I would have been prepared with more money than what I thought I was okay with.

Response from Adelante Abroad

Great to hear that you had such an amazing experience in Scotland and we hope you look back on it with many wonderful memories.

We give you a lot of information prior to your program and it is mentioned in the Pre-Departure materials that a housing deposit may be required - we even make you sign off on it!!! We understand that in all the details you may have forgotten about that. For future candidates we can include a reminder nearer departure - thanks for the heads up!

Well worth the hard work and beatiful scenery

8/10

I worked 40 hours a week and saved my money to spend during the weekend when I travelled to cities such as: Edinburgh, Glasgow, Aviemore, Blair Atholl, Skye, Fort William, etc. I had some difficulties with the public transportation at times; simply because I would get lost or I just wasn't use to the systems. Asking the locals is always useful and everyone is so sweet!

How can this program be improved?

I would recommend the program for Edinburgh but not the program to Pitlochry. Pitlochry is beautiful but has no social sceen and the boss you will work with is incredibly difficult.

An Amazing Experience

8/10

The experience was amazing as far as gaining work experience and becoming part of a different culture. It is important to be willing to do things on your own and be interested in meeting others and making memories. Without this, in my experience, the trip would have been unpleasant as the people I lived with had no desire to become open-minded to a new culture and become part of it, or even get to know anyone including their roommates.

How can this program be improved?

The program needs to be more careful about those they accept. As there are so many people who apply for these positions, it is important to make sure that those individuals are open-minded, friendly, and actually interested in experiencing the culture.

Mysterious Scotland

9/10

Edinburgh, one of the most charming cities I`ve ever visited, full of mysteries and warm, open-minded people, who despite the rainy weather, can really make you feel at home.
I studied at the SAC (the Scottish Agricultural College) and I am really satisfied with this experience. My advisor helped me carrying out many different short researches on food policy, consumer behaviour and agricultural economics, coming up with a project almost every day. I was glad I did not have to work on just one single project for the whole period of my stay, so that I could see everything under a bigger prospective. I focused a bit more on the CAP (the Common Agricultural Policy) reform, since it was a hot topic for the European Union at the time, and analysed all the implications of the reform for the main Member States. The data we used to analyse the different policies came from publications of European research centres, official documents of the European Commission and a specific and rare database that the SAC had in its archives. I had the chance to talk with many researchers at the college and from them I've always received very useful insights. I am also really grateful for all the help and suggestions my advisor provided me with. I think this experience will be a guideline and a benchmark for my future career.
When not working in Edinburgh there is plenty to see: dramatic castles, old underground tunnels, beautiful gothic churches, interesting museums, florid gardens and so on and so forth. The highlands are also an unforgettable experience. The landscapes there are so stunningly beautiful that they do not seem even real. The food is not that bad as in the rest of the UK, at least as far as my Italian taste is concerned… The Scottish salmon is a delicacy, then for less sophisticated palates, there is the traditional haggis, which is better not to know how it is made, but it tastes really good, especially with a whisky cream on top! Drinks are much more famous than the food; there are probably more types of beer than the whole Scottish population and it is well worth trying them all!
The accommodation was really comfortable from the second week on, with very large rooms and close to the city centre. I had some troubles during the first week due to an overlapping of students, coming (another girl and I) and going (other students who had almost finished their projects), but nevertheless we managed to survive and after some moving, I got along very well with my housemate.
I would definitely recommend this experience, I enjoyed myself improving my skills at the same time, just a small advice, do not forget closed waterproof shoes and an umbrella!:)

Make sure to tell everyone involved exactly what you want to get out of the program (and make sure you know as well!). The only way to know what you're getting into and if it's right for you is to ask questions until you get answers.

A great experience!

8/10

This has been a great experience! My supervisors at the internship that I was placed gave me plenty to do and I learned a lot from them. I spent the first few weeks researching and visiting different sites around the city that the supervisor had scheduled previously. Then the last few weeks were spent working on a study that they allowed me to run! Definitely a great resume building opportunity all around! Additionally, the living conditions were also phenomenal, I was certainly not expecting to be living in such a nice apartment in such a good part of the city. It was right near the bus stop, all the good restaurants and grocery stores. The only problem that I really had from the living situation was the fact that our apartment didn't have Wi-Fi for 3 weeks, but other than that it was pretty luxurious! The only complaint that I would really have is that it is pretty expensive, not to mention the fact that the city is expensive to begin with. All in all, I had a great time and I'm sure anyone who was looking to intern abroad would feel the same!

This program was amazing! Not only did I get lots of experience in my field of study but it also opened my eyes to new aspects of my field. Conducting research studies really made me think about a different approach to what I am planning on studying. It was exciting and I learned a lot. Not only was the educational part extremely interesting and useful, the location of the apartment they gave us was in a perfect spot in the city and was close to everything. It was truly an amazing experience.

Scotland Observation Program

10/10

Scotland was a great experience. At 9 am we would catch our bus to go to work. During the 30 minute ride to work, we would talk with each other and the locals. We arrived at work at 9:30 and stayed until 5. At work, we had various projects which needed to be completed at the end of our 6 week stay. The people were amazing and kind. On the weekends, we went on tours and explored Scotland. We did have one major problem; it took 3 weeks for us to get wifi at the apartment.
