Please bring comfortable clothing suitable to the Scottish climate, which, although temperate, can be changeable (see checklist).
Golf Wear / Sports Wear
Access to Golf Clubs will require golf attire: trousers, golf shoes/trainers, glove, waterproof jacket, t-shirts, cap/hat. Golf students are welcome to bring their own clubs, or we can provide them.
Please let us know, prior to arrival, if you require clubs to be provided. If students wish, they can bring their tennis racquets and accessories, but this equipment can also be provided if you do not have any.
For the Braveheart Challenge, students may get very muddy! Please bring an old tracksuit, shorts, t-shirt or sweatshirt and training shoes that you don’t mind getting dirty. Please note, these should not be your golf shoes.
All students will have access to laundry facilities once a week during their stay. Please also bring appropriate clothing for watersports, including a towel.
Our recommendation for pocket money varies for each student. However, we generally recommend about £40 per week. Students will be able to purchase snacks and drinks at the university and will have the opportunity to go shopping for souvenirs.
Please inform us of any prescribed medication you will be bringing, by entering the details of your medication into the medical form.
We encourage students to bring laptops or tablets with them for class notes. However, this is not a requirement and students are responsible for looking after them. Mobile phones are also encouraged, but again this is not a requirement.
Students may wish to bring photographic or other AV equipment.
If students play a musical instrument, we encourage them to bring it with them, if possible.
Please note that all students must take out a travel insurance policy, prior to arrival. This should cover medical and dental emergencies. However, we also encourage you to take out a policy, which covers travel disruptions and lost luggage.
Students have the option to give their pocket money to the Director but will be responsible for other items such as laptops, cameras and phones. As such, we recommend a policy that covers potential loss of these items, as well as damage to property. We may request proof of your insurance policy prior to your journey.
