Course Details 

Program Description

This program examines the requirements to operate and improve customer service and product quality levels in a restaurant, hotel or other tourism operation while focusing on the cultural nuances of Scotland. As a class, students will learn about regional tourist attractions, lodging, and restaurant operations in Scotland. This class will provide hands on production with culinarians in the art of Scottish cooking, as well as exploration of local and indigenous ingredients. Artisan business entities and other local hospitality businesses will be explored and evaluated from top to bottom, including service and production.  Topics of learning include local food specialties, equipment, furnishings, regulations, operations, marketing and business planning. This course will include as much hands on work as we can reasonably arrange and accomplish in kitchens, lodging and tourist destinations, while still offering time to explore the country and culture.

Excursions May Include
Scotland offers a very unique set of attractions, restaurant, and lodging establishments to study and learn from. In addition, these tourist attractions often drive an entire economic area and are very significant to the country’s economy. Our students will have the opportunity to be immersed and learn from these economic drivers such as the St. Andrews Links and the Edinburgh Castle.

In addition, we may tour The Strathmore Highland Games, the Glamis Castle, the Rosslyn Chapel, Edinburgh museums and many local hotels and spectator tours. While in Scotland, students will gain access to these establishments in front of the house and back of house.

Class Information
Eight weeks of the course will be classroom focused on the technical and cultural components of Culinary, Tourism, and the Hospitality Industry in Scotland. The last two weeks will incorporate on site instruction in Scotland. 


Student accommodation will be in group apartments, same-sex dorm rooms in hostels, or university housing. Each housing facility will be within walking distance of restaurants, grocery stores, and most major attractions. Taxis, buses, and trains are available for adventures further afield. Some meals will be provided at our housing facility, while other meals will be self-catering.
