London, one of the most culturally diverse and fascinating cities in the world, is a city steeped in history that has inspired artists, writers, and students for centuries. As a participant in this program you can spend a summer studying and living in the historic Bloomsbury district of London in close proximity to some of the world’s finest museums and cultural sites. In the London study abroad program, you will live in the part of this great city that has housed William Shakespeare, Charles Dickens, Virginia Woolfe, and other great writers. You will be minutes away from the theatre district and Trafalgar Square, and within walking distance of the British Museum and its extraordinary collections. You can explore London’s vast and beautiful parks- Hyde Park, St. James, and Green Park- and walk along the Thames toward Big Ben, Westminster Abbey, and the Houses of Parliament. London also offers quick access to all major cities in Europe.
