Things might not go as planned but that doesn't mean it still can't be good. Sometimes you just have to let life run its course and take you along in the experience. - West Chester University of Pennsylvania View Entire Review

A student studying abroad with Athena Study Abroad: London - Roehampton University
I learned how to live with people that were not exactly my type of people (loud party people) and how to truly live on my own (cooking, cleaning, etc). I also learned how to navigate in a foreign country. It was definitely worthwhile. Studying abroad gives you a new perspective on many aspects of life. - Capital University View Entire Review

About

One of the world's greatest intellectual capitals, London, boasts a history of historical and cultural icons. Culturally the city is an international center for film, music, sport, nightlife, theater, fashion and art.

London's many districts, each with their own distinctive character, provide opportunities for an extraordinary range of social and cultural experiences. Covent Garden, South Bank, Soho, and Westminster are all within easy reach of the University. Sites to visit around London include the London Eye, National Gallery, Hyde Park, Westminster Abbey, Tower of London, and Globe Theater. Even closer to the campus, students will find a wide variety of places of interest, shopping areas, bars and restaurants, many ideally suited for students on a tight budget. There is so much to do and see in this city, during orientation week students are able to participate in a scavenger hunt throughout the city!
