“The most wonderful thing about SUISS was the ability to learn from students, lecturers and tutors from all over the world in Edinburgh. This school reinforces the idea, in a time when discourse is in peril, that our ability to talk and learn from people all over the world is a privilege, and that our humanity unites, not separates us.”         

Monica Kays, ESU Princeton Branch

I gained a more nuanced understanding of History that I look forward to sharing with my colleagues and students. Though our days were busy with academic endeavors one should not forget the lovely city of Oxford. After a day of studying my colleagues and I would explore the many colleges that comprise the University of Oxford.  I am extremely grateful to the ESU for providing teachers like myself with an unforgettable Oxford experience. This rich and rewarding intellectual program will be remembered for many years to come.

Thanks very much to the ESU for this extraordinary opportunity. Collaborating with people of all ages from all over the world, listening to lectures on literature given by some of the most intelligent scholars in Scottish universities, and being in this city with its rich culture and history has been an invaluable experience

— Michael Mezzo, Edinburgh

I feel like I’m back to my undergrad days: wide-eyed, sometimes overwhelmed, but always in awe of the abilities of the people around me. I’m remembering my passion for literature.
