University of Delaware Institute for Global Studies
Spring 2022: London, England

Program Dates January 13, 2022 - April 23, 2022
This program is closed.

Program Overview 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).


Study in the diverse and cosmopolitan city of London. One of the world’s most diverse cities, London offers something for everyone — discover the treasures of the British Museum, explore the arts and music scene in Camden, and sample food from around the world at Borough Market.

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.

CAPA London students take classes from local British faculty 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. Students have access to the Student Union at the Imperial College of London.

Unpaid internships are available for an added cost of approximately $500 - $600 for a UK visa. Students have the option of enrolling in a 3-credit internship in lieu of one traditional course. Internships are available in a variety of fields and require a 20-hour per week work commitment. Additional materials are required for internship participants (cover letter and resume). Students who opt for an internship enroll in BUAD 364, POSC 464 or UNIV362 070 as one of their courses. See the course information below for details. Specific placements are not guaranteed.
