I don't know what I want to do with my life but I now know that someday I will move to London. I have fallen in love with the city and I'm never going to forget it. There is so much in the world and London is a major center of culture and has such a rich life that I just haven't been able to find anywhere else.

My experience was incredible. I loved every bit of it. From making new friends, seeing as much of London as I could, to the classes, and the nightlife, I now have so many amazing memories to look back on.

I learned a lot more about myself. I have gained confidence and know that I can travel about a foreign city by myself. I got to know and love another culture and now want to return. - California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo View Entire Review
Past Review
Yes. I learned how to live in another city, another place away from home. It was a challenge, but I grew from the challenges. I was taken away from all of my comforts and forced to see myself for who I was outside the context of San Luis Obispo or Santa Rosa--any of the places that I have called home in the past. As a result, I ... - California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo View Entire Review

About

Since 1984, over 2,500 students and 140 faculty have participated in the London Study program. The six-week London Study Program is offered during the summer quarter. Students and faculty alike immerse themselves in courses that use London as a laboratory. While planned primarily for general education experiences in the arts, humanities, and social sciences, the program draws students from all majors. Courses are enriched by adjuncts and visiting lecturers from British institutions. It is part of the routine to leave the classroom to experience art, music, history, or architecture. Students take numerous field trips visiting London’s concert halls, theaters, museums, cathedrals, and halls of government.

Spending time in London as a student is a truly unforgettable experience. London is one of the world's great cultural and economic centers. The city's modern cosmopolitan identity combines a fascinating past with a present of more than 7 million people living, studying, working, and playing in its different areas. The arts, theatre, nightlife, music, and literature are showcased in London.
