Junior Adie Norris has been accepted to study psychology and neuroscience at The University of St. Andrews in Scotland in July. She will spend the month participating in a program designed for high school juniors and seniors to learn under the tutelage of St. Andrews faculty in the Scottish academic tradition.

The St. Andrews website description includes "From biological brains to social minds: this course delivers contemporary teaching across a broad range of areas, led by researchers from the School of Psychology and Neuroscience." Topic examples include "developmental and cultural psychology, cognition, perception, the biology of neurons, and disorders of the nervous system."

“I’ve enjoyed visiting Scotland since I was very young, and my mom is a graduate of the University of Edinburgh, so applying to schools in the U.K. for undergraduate studies has always been on my radar," Norris said. "I’m interested in studying neuroscience with the ultimate goal of going to medical school for psychiatry, so this program is a unique opportunity to combine both my love for Scotland and interest in studying neuroscience at one of the best universities in the world.”

Norris will be traveling throughout France prior to her study in Scotland.
