Program Notes
Program Description

London is a cosmopolitan and dynamic European capital with over 2000 years of history. In this program, the city is your classroom.

The University of Delaware collaborates with the Centers for Academic Programs Abroad (CAPA) which is the organization that coordinates all of the on-site program logistics. Based in the Royal Borough of Kensington, students will attend class at the CAPA center which has wireless access, a computer lab, classroom spaces, a resource room and a student lounge.

Study with British faculty and take courses with other American students from a variety of U.S. colleges and universities. Many of the courses offered incorporate field trips into the curriculum to enhance the academic experience.

Internships are available for an added cost of approximately $500 - $600 for a UK visa. Additional materials are required for internship participants (cover letter and resume). Students who opt for an internship enroll in BUAD 364 or COMM 364 as one of their courses. See the course information below for details. Specific placements are not guaranteed.

The program includes a full day excursion to Stonehenge and Bath. Students also have the opportunity to take part in many other activities - a welcome reception, outings to museums, special lectures, films, and walking tours. Additionally, students will have a chance to interact with their British peers since they will have access to the Imperial College London Student Union.

Students will be housed in double/triple rooms in furnished flats (apartments) with kitchens. Flats are located no more than a 45 minute commute from the CAPA London Center.

The Program Fee includes lodging, class fieldtrips, day trip to Stonehenge & Bath, daytrip to Stratford-upon-Avon and Kenilworth Castle, welcome reception, medical insurance, and a tube pass for zones 1 -2.

The program fee does NOT include airfare airfare to/from London, nor airport transfers within the U.S. . The program officially begins when students arrive in London. Students will receive detailed travel instructions after acceptance, explaining how and where to purchase their plane ticket. See the Cost section below for estimate airfare. For this program, students will be given recommended flight itineraries for traveling together.

Due to the time required to obtain a visa, at the time of application, students must have a passport valid for six months beyond the program’s return date.

Students will need to budget for meals, laundry, cellphone, and other personal expenses. Students are required to have a cellphone capable of making local calls in London and of sending and receiving text messages in London. The phone must also have a data plan.

ACCESSIBILITY: Participants with disabilities should know that accessibility and accommodation in some program locations may differ from the United States. Transit systems and legacy building construction practices may not meet U.S. accessibility standards, and alternative access to public transportation, buildings, or public sites cannot be guaranteed. But UD students with disabilities are welcome and encouraged to study abroad. Review these questions with the Office of Disability Support Services to determine whether this program can meet your accommodation needs.
