Broad Curriculum Program in London

Overall rating: 0 based on 0 reviews

Program Description

Students will have the opportunity to explore life in London, other regions of England, and even nearby European countries while pursuing elective courses and general requirements with the Broad Curriculum Program.

Participants of this program will be able to go on excursions to areas and sites that are off the beaten track or difficult for many to reach independently, all while enjoying the cultural vibrancy of Britain. At least one overnight trip is included and will allow students to venture to the gorgeous countryside and a landmark British city. Participants will go on day trips to different areas of London and explore other cities and towns outside of the city. The Study Centre also hosts a range of group activities including a weekly Pizza Night. The Centre provides a continental breakfast on each class day.

Lessons run from Monday to Thursday in the Fall and Spring semesters. Long weekends and a ten-day mid-semester break allow for ample personal time to travel during these two semesters.
