YOU + STUDYING ABROAD IN LONDON 

One of the largest and most iconic cities in the world, FIE study abroad programs in London offer excellent opportunities for almost any major. From the top of Big Ben to the bottom of the ever-flowing Thames River, London has a hustle of innovation that is hard to ignore. Historical documents, the cradle of the English language, and technological frontiers melt in this charismatic, diverse city to bring you the best of the best.

FIE programs for study abroad in London are held at the Foundation House Study Center in the heart of the city’s Kensington district. Leafy trees and photogenic Georgian architecture line the streets of your walk home from nearby cultural institutions like Royal Albert Hall, Chelsea's famed King's Road, and stunning Hyde Park. When you’re not acing your studies, you can attend rugby matches, pose on Abbey road, take to the coast, or host tea parties (Twinings ONLY) with your new mates.

FIE’s staff and faculty, as London specialists, are proud to have been helping universities, colleges, and students realize their potential in this exceptional city for nearly 20 years.

As if you need more reasons to study abroad in London, here are three awesome FIE programs to get you started:

  • Study (semester, quarter, and summer program options)

  • Study & Internship (semester, spring quarter, summer, and academic year options)

  • Study & Service Internship (semester, quarter, summer, and academic year options)

 

Whilst British humor might take a little getting used to, an FIE program will serve as the perfect bridge for connecting with the locals in no time. Study abroad in England and experience for yourself what it’s like to be front and center on the global stage.
