Emma - 2017

For my short term exchange I attended the Geology of Scotland course offered by the university of Glasgow. I had an amazing time on the course and would recommend it to anyone with an interest in geology. The course mainly consisted of field trips meaning we got to see a lot of Scotland and plenty of cool rocks. One thing I loved about this course was how instead of learning concepts in the classroom we got to go and experience them. I also did a lot of exploring and went on several tours around Scotland and England. As one of my friends said, if you're not exhausted the whole time you're not doing it right.
