Program Overview

Film_EdinThis is a biennial program and will be offered in summer 2020.

The Film Studies FSP offers students the opportunity to combine historical study with professional practice at the Screen Academy Scotland.  Together with their instructors, students will attend screenings and events at the Edinburgh International Film Festival.  Attendance at the EIFF, its master classes, press conferences, and debates will bring students into contact with film professionals, the general public, and the life of the city.

Student Life

Students will be assigned to self-catering University of Edinburgh-owned furnished flats.  Please be certain to comply with all the rules and regulations that govern these facilities, as we shall certainly want to house future Dartmouth students in these University accommodations.
The flats have furnished kitchens, which should cut down on your expenses for meals not taken in restaurants or at the University cafeteria.  All charges (electricity, heating, internet) are covered by Dartmouth’s payment of your rental accommodation.
Bed linens and towels are provided.

It is hoped that, beyond their regular courses, students will attend a wide variety of public events offered throughout the summer, including the celebrated Edinburgh International Festival and Festival Fringe.

Financial Information

Tuition and Fees
The fees charged by the College for a Dartmouth-sponsored off-campus term of study include regular tuition charges for a term at Dartmouth, service fees, as well as the specific costs established for each off-campus study locale. In many programs, the room and board costs tend to be higher than for a term in Hanover. You can view a budget sheet for this program by clicking here. The cost of transportation to and from the site is the responsibility of the student.

Financial Aid
In order that all qualified Dartmouth undergraduate students may have the opportunity to take part in off-campus programs, the College endeavors to adjust its normal financial aid awards for students already receiving aid. Tuition and expected family contribution for Dartmouth's off-campus programs are the same as for an on-campus term. Assistance is available to meet extra costs associated with off-campus programs, including airfare. Half of any extra cost is met with additional Dartmouth scholarship; loan assistance is offered for the other half. Loan assistance is also offered to replace the employment that would normally be included in an on-campus term. Although financial aid recipients are given aid to cover all of the required costs of the program, students are responsible for purchasing their own plane ticket and, on some programs, meals. Often this means that part of the expected family contribution is used towards these costs rather than for tuition.
