I wanted to study abroad to enrich my educational experience beyond the classroom.

Scotland is one of the four constituent countries that make up the United Kingdom. It occupies the northern third of the island of Great Britain. The Kingdom of Scotland was an independent state until May 1, 1707, when the Acts of Union, despite widespread protest across Scotland, resulted in a union with England to create the Kingdom of Great Britain.
