Program Notes
Note: Please check program pages regularly or follow @UDGlobal on Instagram or Twitter for updated information on applying for a 24W study abroad program.

Please review the CGPS COVID-19 Updates page before applying to a study abroad program for information about COVID-19 related travel requirements and policies for UD study abroad.

All applicants must have a valid passport by the program’s application deadline. Your passport’s expiration date must be more than six months after the program ends. If you do not have a current passport, apply through the U.S. State Department. It takes an average of 8-11 weeks (2-3 months) to process a 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.
Program Description

The course satisfies the second writing requirement and the group A breadth requirement.

Study English in the heart of England! This program in London offers ENGL 290: Studies in Literature for Non-Majors. We will focus our reading on writers, both historic and contemporary, who wrote in and about London. The course satisfies the group A breadth requirement. ENG 290 can be taken multiple times for credit if the specific focus of the course is different each time.

Students will be housed in shared flats. The flats are all in bustling residential areas of greater London, within easy Tube travel of our classrooms in South Kensington. Travel passes are included in the program fee. Your flat will have a kitchen, living area, bedrooms and bathroom. You can read a blog post about the housing (including suggestions on what to bring) we will be in here: and see a video tour of what your flat may look like here:

Visits to literary landmarks like the homes of Charles Dickens, Virginia Woolf and John Keats, as well as walking tours focused on beloved characters like Sherlock Holmes and Harry Potter will give students a feel for the lived experiences of London-based writers and the presence the city itself has in literature. We will also visit other iconic London sites, like the Tower of London and the British Museum, to explore the connections between historical events/places and the writing of the time.

Students will read, discuss, and write reflectively about selections from multiple genres from historical periods spanning from Tudor times to the 21st century. Texts may include short stories, poems, and excerpts from novels and plays from authors like Charles Dickens, John Keats, William Blake, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, Virginia Woolf, Hanif Kureishi, Brigid Brophy, Monica Ali, and Buchi Emecheta.

The Program Fee includes housing accommodations, all excursions, international medical insurance and two group meals.

The Program Fee does NOT include 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.

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.
Program Courses
Students must enroll in all credit-bearing courses for a grade. Only the UNIV (zero credit) course may be taken pass/fail. Audit registration is not permitted on UD Travel Study. Please refer to the University Catalog to verify requirements and prerequisites
Honors credit may be available. Check with the faculty director and the Honors program for approval (check before departure).
All students must enroll in at least 3 credits, as well as the 0-credit UNIV course.
ENGL 280-070: Approaches to Literature for Non-Majors (3 credits)
ENGL 280 allows non-English majors to study literature in order to fulfill both the Group A breadth requirement and the second writing requirement. This course offers dual emphasis on reading and writing. In London, Students will read, discuss, and write reflectively about selections from multiple genres from historical periods spanning from Tudor times to the 21st century. The common denominator among the texts in this version of the course is that the city of London plays an essential role in the story and that role is often dark. The central longer texts of the course are "Neverwhere" by Neil Gaiman, an urban fantasy novel set in a shadowy version of London's Tube system, and "The Night Watch" by Sarah Waters, an award-winning literary mystery set during the London Blitz of WWII. Other selections may include short excerpts from authors like Anne Askew (put to death as a heretic in 1546), Charles Dickens, William Blake, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, Virginia Woolf, John Strummer (of the Clash), Hanif Kurieshi, Monica Ali, and Buchi Emecheta.
