Have you ever considered what it would be like to come to England not as a tourist or a visitor, but as a resident - someone who through everyday interactions - becomes immersed in all of the beauty, history and culture that is London? Now you can!
For over 45 years, Florida State University has offered a small liberal arts college atmosphere in the heart of London. Small classes, dedicated teacher-scholars, and engaged peer groups make studying in London an enormously rewarding experience. With courses designed to maximize the use of the city as both a classroom and a text, and professors committed to an imaginative approach to teaching, students spend a great deal of their time learning by experience in London's museums, galleries, theatres, and neighborhoods.
Participation in this program allows students to experience various supervised group excursions, often traveling to places that would be difficult to reach by themselves. Fall and Spring semesters include a Monday through Thursday class schedule, allowing plenty of opportunities for personal travel, several long weekends, plus a ten-day break. The calendar generally includes day trips to places such as Stonehenge, Bath, Oxford, Wales, Brighton, and Stratford-upon-Avon, as well as fall and spring semester overnight to an exciting UK destination, such as Cornwall, Edinburgh, Yorkshire, or Liverpool. Students also participate in a variety of cultural activities, including tea, guest lectures, pot-luck suppers, and guided walks through and around London.
