 The FIE London Study Program includes:

The term is divided into two phases with an orientation prior to the start of classes and a week-long mid-term break.





PHASE ONE (Seven Weeks)

Students enroll in one of FIE’s signature Key Courses to help them contextualize their experience in London within a broad, academic structure. In addition, students choose from a menu of FIE elective courses. The Key Course spans both semester phases. Some electives span both phases and some are available only during Phase One or Phase Two.


Key Course Options   Elective Courses

A variety of FIE Elective Courses are offered to students in the semester Study Program. Availability in each phase is based on overall student enrollment and faculty availability. Students enroll in a minimum of three elective courses.



Students have the opportunity to explore London or travel to other destinations during this time. Our Student Life Team is available to answer questions and provide resources for travel planning.
