Applications are now open for the second Scotland Model Arctic Council (SCOTMAC 2)!

Students studying any subject at any university in the world are warmly invited to apply to take part in this innovative educational experience.  Please use the application form below to register your interest.

SCOTMAC 2 will take place 10-12 March 2023 at Glasgow Caledonian University in Glasgow, Scotland.  It will involve three full days of model diplomacy and expert teaching, plus morning and afternoon refreshments, three lunches, a welcome dinner and a finale dinner.

Places on SCOTMAC 2 are limited to 32 students.  Up to 20 places will be reserved for students from Scottish Arctic Network universities (Glasgow Caledonian University, Glasgow School of Art, Heriot-Watt University, Robert Gordon University, and the universities of Aberdeen, Edinburgh, Highlands and Islands, St Andrews and Strathclyde).  Up to four places will also be reserved for students from SCOTMAC partner Trent University in Canada.

There is no cost to students to take part in SCOTMAC, but selected applicants are asked to make their own travel and accommodation arrangements.  Selected applicants from Scottish universities outside of Glasgow will be eligible for a bursary to help defray travel and accommodation costs.

The application period closes on 13 January, so don’t delay applying for your place!
