 Study Abroad in the United Kingdom - England


Discover what life is like in one of the world’s most popular study abroad destinations.  While London is the center of British politics and business, Brighton, Coventry, Bristol, or trendy Leeds and Manchester are great choices for a more affordable urban experience;  these areas outside of London offer shorter daily commutes and more opportunities to mix with local students. 

Less than an hour from London by train, Sussex provides intensive learning near the seaside town of Brighton. In the historical English towns of Cambridge and Norwich, find woodlands, cobblestone streets, medieval castles and riverside pubs. About a 2-hour train ride from Paris and Brussels is storybook Canterbury, the famed destination in Chaucer’s Canterbury Tales.

In London, art studio and design students will benefit immensely from small group training in a world center for art. Communications and media and cultural studies majors can gain new perspectives in these fields at the London College of Communication.
