Overview

The Alnwick program takes place in northern England inside the castle that is home to the Duke and Duchess of Northumberland. To many, it is also known as “the Harry Potter Castle.”  Students take classes while living inside the castle in order to get a better understanding of British Culture. A few of the places students can visit include Hadrian’s Wall, The Lake District, London, and Edinburgh. This program offers students a unique opportunity to fully immerse themselves in the British Culture! On this 9 week summer program students will explore global business in the United Kingdom, cultural differences in business practices and how it compares to the U.S., and so much more!

Attractions  

The castle in itself is an attraction during tourist season with broomstick flying lessons, archery lessons, and tours of the castle area that the Duke and Duchess live in. Alnwick also supports a rugby team that plays on the outskirts of the town.  Hulne Park or Duke’s Park both offer multiple walking trails. If students are looking to see something outside the precinct, however, Newcastle, England and Edinburgh, Scotland are only a train ride away for weekend getaways!   


Housing

SCSU students live in dormitory-styled rooms inside of Alnwick Castle. Single rooms are available upon request for an extra cost, but the typical dorm rooms fit two to four students in them. On the castle grounds there is a kitchen, dining hall, recreation room, laundry room, and library.
