Yes, I recommend this program

Bagpipes, Highlands, and Haggis - oh my!

This program was undoubtedly the best experience of my life. I went to class every morning at the University of Edinburgh, which was an easy 20 minutes walk from where I was staying. There was lecture 5 days a week, followed by a coffee break then discussion in small groups.
There was plenty of time outside of class for sightseeing, both in and out of the city itself. Both SUISS and Arcadia organized several field trips to events like the Highland Games, tours of Scottish Parliament, etc. It was incredible to meet so many students from around the world - I now have friends in every corner of the globe, and I have this program to thank for that.
Food was provided (just no lunch on weekends) and served buffet style. Standard fare, but SUISS made sure to have programs where we could eat authentic Scottish cuisine (and yes, I ate haggis and loved it!).
Throughout all this, Arcadia was an invaluable resource. They laid out every detail of the travel - they even picked me up from the airport. All my additional questions were answered promptly via email. I can't recommend this program enough.
