Costs and Scholarships

Global Gateway for Teachers cannot provide exact cost information since costs will vary throughout the year and from one individual to the next. Please note that all estimates are listed in U.S. Dollars. Keep in mind that foreign currency exchange rates will affect the value of the U.S. Dollar and hence your budget.

Teaching Responsibilities

Students may teach a variety of subjects and grade levels. In most cases, they will teach in their own licensing area (e.g., elementary education, secondary math, etc.). Further, it may be possible to fulfill practicum requirements in Scotland for the following license additions: ESL/ENL, Reading, JH/MS, Computers, and possibly others.

Other Considerations

Placements in Scotland are limited. Students considering Scotland should have a strong “second choice” host nation.
