MORE CULTURE. LESS SHOCK. Programs, Internships and Volunteer Opportunities

England Study Abroad Program

(Flag of England)Combine outstanding academics with a vibrant, cutting-edge culture by choosing England as your study abroad destination. This country has a hip, urban edge that undercuts its watercolor image, and England’s many cities offer renowned art, culture and nightlife that attract visitors and immigrants from all corners of the world. Although beautiful countryside and lovely villages still abound, England is more likely to give you an urban academic experience than cottages and cozy tea parties with the vicar.

England offers incomparable choices for a semester, year or summer abroad. For the ultimate big-city experience, diverse and gigantic London allows you to choose from 10 renowned universities and an impressive array of subjects. Outside of London, 12 universities, some of which are among the most prestigious in the world, allow you to immerse yourself in the culture of England while living in locations that range from small cities to large metropolises. Regardless of which city or university you choose, you’re sure to find excitement and academic quality in your English study abroad experience.
