Program Notes
Note: Please check program pages regularly or follow @UDGlobal on Instagram or Twitter for updated information on applying for a 22W study abroad program.

If you do not have a current passport, you should be aware that COVID-19 has delayed passport processing times significantly. The U.S. State Department has announced that it now takes an average of 18 weeks (4.5 months) to process a passport.

Given the circumstances, if you want to study abroad in 2022, you need to apply for or renew your passport NOW - even if you’re not 100% sure about your study abroad plans yet. We recommend expediting both the processing time and the shipping time for your passport.


Traveling and studying abroad during a global pandemic poses new challenges and requires accepting a higher level of uncertainty than in the past. Students who choose to study abroad at this time must be prepared to adapt to the evolving situation and must take responsibility to act in accordance with the rules, regulations, and recommendations of UD, their program leadership, and legal authorities of their home and host country. Due to the rapidly changing and unpredictable global and local response to COVID-19, these rules, regulations and recommendations are subject to change at any time.

The University will continue to monitor the ongoing situation with COVID-19 (coronavirus) as we approach the departure date for this program. Please reach out to your program coordinator or faculty director with questions and continue to monitor the UD coronavirus webpage for updates.

If UD decides to cancel a study abroad program, we will communicate directly with affected students. In this case, the University of Delaware will reimburse the cost of program fees, tuition and flights (if purchase was advised by CGPS).
Program Description

London is the best place to study drama, whether British, American, classical, or other. Actors on the London stage are the best in the world, and productions are invariably exciting from every standpoint—stage setting, direction, but above all acting. By integrating ENGL208 with THEA 206, students will come away with a fine appreciation of various types of drama. The program includes tickets for at least eight plays, along with several excursions to places like Shakespeare’s Stratford-upon-Avon, the reconstructed Globe Theatre, and Hampton Court. But enough free time, including most weekends, is included to allow students to discover much of London on their own. One long weekend is guaranteed so that those who want to travel to Dublin, Paris, Amsterdam, and elsewhere will be able to do at a time when fares are at their lowest.

Students in this program will be housed in a hotel near the building where classes are held. A full English breakfast with a variety of foods is included with double room. Students will receive travel cards that enable them to travel all over central London by Underground, and anywhere in London by bus. All excursions and special lectures by visiting stage personnel and others are also covered by the program fee. Airfare is not included, as students are free to make their own travel arrangements. Students may choose to fly together in a group leaving from Philadelphia airport. A coach will be waiting for us at Heathrow airport in London to take those on the group flight (and others who arrive in time to meet up with us) directly to the hotel to check in. Free wi-fi is available at the hotel and in the classroom building, where computer printers are also available. In sum, everything is included in the program fee except airfare, phone calls, laundry, lunches, and dinners (many inexpensive restaurants are nearby the hotel as well as supermarkets that have prepared food available.

The Program Fee includes accommodations in a hotel with full English breakfast, group excursions, cultural events, a tube pass for zones 1-2, international medical insurance and a farewell meal.

The Program Fee does NOT include airfare to/from London and airport transfers in the United States. 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.

ACCESSIBILITY: Students with disabilities are welcomed and encouraged to study abroad, but should be aware 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. Review these questions with the Office of Disability Support Services to determine whether this program can meet your accommodation needs.
