The table above shows costs of attendance for the STEM Research program at the University of Aberdeen in Scotland. See tables below for the costs of attendance estimates for other locations.

Program costs are estimates and subject to change up to the program commitment deadline.

As institutions around the world determine program costs at different times, it is difficult for EA to provide actual cost information until shortly before the beginning of a program. You are encouraged to consult this document on a regular basis as it is frequently updated with the most current cost information and billing information available.

Students are assessed the standard University Park Penn State Tuition & Technology Fee, Education Abroad Administrative Fee, and an Education Abroad Program Fee.The program fee includes:
  • Housing
  • Some meals
  • Excursions
  • Admissions
Non-PA residents participating on this program will be credited an amount in the Beginning Balance of their semester bills which when subtracted from the Non-PA tuition rate reflects a net tuition equal to the established PA resident tuition rate.
