Program Description:
IFSA London Plus
Geotag  London, England

London is one of the most cosmopolitan cities in the world and one of the most popular study abroad destinations. A sophisticated city with endless cultural, historic, artistic, political, and intellectual offerings, it’s also home to many universities scattered throughout different neighborhoods. London’s excellent public transportation system will take you easily from your housing to classes and anywhere else you want to go. The city’s train stations, bus networks, and airports make traveling throughout the U.K. and Europe a snap.

Learn along with students from the UK (and around the world) with a class at Queen Mary University of London or London College of Fashion, and explore today’s relevant topics with your IFSA classmates. Your centrally located apartment makes it easy to explore the best of London, from Camden Market to West End theatres to Hyde Park. With excursions to UK icons like Windsor Castle, Stonehenge, and Brighton, this affordable program has it all.

Enroll in one direct-enroll class at Queen Mary University, City University of London (AACSB-accredited), or London College of Fashion (Spring 2022). Some popular options are listed below, but you will have access to any class available to visiting students. Then, enroll in IFSA elective classes to complete your schedule. One of those classes may include a credit-bearing internship or directed research.
