Q: Why should I take this course? 

A: London is one of the most (if not the most) diverse cities in the world. Students are immersed in this multicultural landscape through visits to diverse neighborhoods; places of religious worship; field trips to NGOs, social services agencies, and governmental organizations; and lectures by eminent scholars and community leaders. Cross-cultural learning, which entails listening to and engaging with local communities, is an essential component of this course. 

Q: Will I be able to explore London? 

A: One of the most exciting features is that the city of London is our classroom! We are only in a classroom at the University of London for about a half day per week. Classes are held at different locations in the city itself. Students use the London public transportation system, living like Londoners as they immerse themselves in city life. To deepen the experience, students live (in pairs) with British families. Families are experienced in hosting students and enjoy the experience. 

Q: How much does is cost? 

A: Don’t let cost deter you from exploring this program further! For 

undergraduates, this course is considered a spring course and is included in spring tuition. Graduate students pay for a four-hour course. For all students, there is an additional program cost, estimated to be $4900. The program cost covers housing, all program activities, local transportation, and local cell phone. Study Abroad helps students to access a variety of funding sources and scholarships, and Financial Aid takes the 

program cost into consideration in their awards. 

Q: What about COVID-19? 

A: The pandemic raises important questions and challenges for all of us. Reach out to us or come to an info-session for more information!
