Why have you chosen this particular program over other programs in the UK? What is it about the academic program that motivated your decision? Were there any other factors involved in your decision-making process? 1. I have chosen the Edinburgh program over other programs in the UK because of the large number of friends I’ve had that have visited Edinburgh. I have already been to London twice, but have never been to Scotland, so I would love the opportunity to live in such an amazing place for an entire semester. In terms of the academic program, I have been told that the University of Edinburgh is one of the most prestigious universities in Europe. Since I am about to graduate with an Engineering degree from one of the most prestigious universities in the United States, I liked the idea of not being forced to reduce the credibility of my degree by having to admit to getting a less educational experience at an un-established university. With Edinburgh, I feel the Engineering program is widely accepted and admired enough to where even employers back in the United States will respect the fact that part of my education took place here. I like the location as well because not only are there so many places to go see within Scotland, but it is in relatively close proximity to London and other major locations within the UK that would be exciting to visit. Additionally, through the research I’ve done on the university and from what I’ve been told, the University of Edinburgh is in an ancient castle that is incredibly beautiful. If you were to conduct a research project (using both primary and secondary sources) on a social political, economic, or environmental issue in your proposed host country, what issue would you explore and why? While you do not have to go into great depth, you should demonstrate that you know something about issues in your host country. This issue should be related to your major, minor or work experience if possible.
