- Students are housed in our halls of residence and take classes on our main campus for either 3 or 6 US credits. Classes aim to include as many field trips as possible within London and the program cost includes a one-month travel card allowing unlimited travel on public transport in the Greater London area.
Spend a month studying in London and earn university credit. Our classes cover topics such as British Life and Culture, Theatre in London, Art and Museums in London, International Business, History of Slavery, Shakespeare, Literature, Design, Forensic Science, and more. Each class is worth 3 credits and you can choose to take either one or two classes. We run two weekend trips one to Paris and one to Scotland. Other trips can be arranged by students.
Students live on campus and we include accommodation costs in the programme price. We also include in the price a one month travelcard giving you unlimited transportation access to all of London's great attractions. The London Eye is only 25 minutes away by train from the university. The university is located in an idyllic part of London, in the Royal borough of Kingston upon Thames. Kingston is one of the most affluent and safe boroughs in London and is an historic medieval town filled with shops and cafes.
This is an action packed and busy program that provides students with an intense introduction to the United Kingdom. The program is four and a half weeks long with two long (4-day) weekends for extra traveling time - we offer optional trips on these weekends and during the program.
- Setting Description:
- Kingston University is ideally located in the Royal Borough of Kingston upon Thames on the edge of London - just a 25 minute train ride to the center of the city. The town is large enough to offer an impressive range of services and entertainment, yet small enough to avoid the anonymity of a big city.
