Amazing location that felt very safe! It was very central and so close to the tube station and grocery stores. I loved how all students were in the same apartment complex.

I will forever be thankful for the chance to live in the heart of central London with my peers and friends. This experience allowed me to feel incredible safe with access to all amenities, while be granted independence to personalize my time abroad. This trip will be a hi light of my college career for sure!

We had so much free time to explore the city on our own in addition to the guided tours and events. I think it was a good balance between group activities and personal exploration.

everything I expected and more

 

Tara Ashlynn Bethune, Summer 2016 Participant
I really loved how much free time we had to explore the city on our own. I was able to visit other areas of London that I would have never knew existed. I honestly learned just as much, if not more, exploring on my own and with my peers than I did on a guided tour. I'm so glad we had the long weekend to travel to nearby countries. I was fortunate enough to travel to Ireland, which has been a lifelong dream of mine.

Voice your concerns if you aren't happy with your internship placement, but make sure you just aren't enjoying your job because you have a bad attitude!

 

Hannah Kim, Summer 2016 Participant
Make sure you're internship placement is exactly what you want to get the most out of this study abroad.

This trip encompasses everything you could want in a summer: a study abroad, an internship, and an opportunity to travel and see a part of the world you have not yet seen.

The most amazing experience of my life! Everyone should make the time and effort to study abroad!

 

Megan Jane Fikse, Summer 2017 Participant
This program was an opportunity of a lifetime. I learned so much through my internship, class and through just experiencing the city of London on a day to day basis.

 

Summer 2017 Participant
The study abroad program in London is by far one of the best decisions I've ever made in my life. I was able to immerse myself in the culture and day-to-day life of the city which gave me a confidence and joy that I never would have gained otherwise. I would go back and do all over again if I could!

 

Emily Reynolds Rogers, Summer 2017 Participant
The London study abroad through FACS exceeded my expectations, I learned a lot from the class and in my internship. The amount of work and free time was incredible because it gave us the chance to explore all that the city has to offer while still getting a lot out of the program. I felt like I was really living in London.
