Program Description:
St. Cloud State at Alnwick takes place in northern England inside Alnwick castle, home to the Duke and Duchess of Northumberland. It is also known as “the Harry Potter Castle” because Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone and Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets were both filmed in Alnwick. Students take St. Cloud State courses, all while living and studying inside of a castle. There are specific academic excursions built into the program. A few of the places students might visit include Hadrian’s Wall, The Lake District, Newcastle, and Edinburgh. This program offers students a unique opportunity to fully immerse themselves in British Culture!

Alnwick is about as close to Scotland you can get while still being in England! With a population of a little over 8,000 people, Alnwick is home to the most amazing food and community. In Alnwick, you will be known as a "Cloud" and people will be happy to meet someone new from Minnesota. 

Due to its proximity to Newcastle and Edinburgh, Alnwick is the perfect location to hop over to the mainland and explore Europe! With a quick flight, you can be in Paris, Amsterdam, Prague, Rome, and more.
