IFSA offers students the unique opportunity to study at the University of Edinburgh and intern with the Scottish Parliament in Edinburgh! This program allows its students to not only learn about the politics of a foreign nation but also get involved as an intern.
The program is 15 weeks long. The first five weeks will be spent taking three different courses at the University of Edinburgh: Scottish Government and Politics, Introduction to British Politics, and Scotland: Society and Culture. When you're done with your coursework, you will be assigned a Member of the Scottish Parliament (MSP) to intern for. With the help of your MSP, you will conduct an independent research project and participate in the daily activities of the Parliament.
This IFSA Scottish parliament internship is a great way for students to learn about Scottish politics and culture!
