Program Overview Please review the CGPS COVID-19 Updates page before applying to a study abroad program.

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.

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 and tuition.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.

Study travel writing in England, the country that practically invented writing about adventures overseas. Students will also enjoy exploring a beautiful, fascinating country that is worth writing about in its own right.

Based in London, you’ll interact with the people of the city as you study travel writing. In addition, you’ll immerse yourself in the different sights, sounds, and flavors of modern British life through visits to iconic sights such as the Tower of London, the British Museum, and Westminster Abbey, as well as lesser-known sights such as the Victoria and Albert Museum, the Globe Theatre, and Churchill's War Rooms.

Students reside in double rooms in hotels with breakfasts provided.

The Program Fee includes housing accommodations, daily breakfasts, 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.
