About the Program

The UNCG Department of Social Work has a 25+ year exchange with the University of Strathclyde School of Social Work and Social Policy. Every other year, a UNCG faculty member and a group of UNCG social work students go to Glasgow to study with social work students and faculty. In alternate years, Scottish professors and students come to UNCG for four weeks of study.

During Summer 2016 UNCG students will once again have the opportunity to study in Glasgow for 4 weeks.  Program dates are June 3-July 2 (inclusive of travel).  Students will apply for the program through the International Program Center.  Click “Apply Now”, select that you are a registered user, and log in using your normal UNCG ID and password.
