Overall Experience
The internship CAPA placed me in was absolutely incredible and I definitely learned more about the field of psychology I want to go into. WOrking with LGBTQ+ individuals and providing them with a safe space to discuss their issues and meet other people was phenomenal, and a lot of fun! I also learned a lot about myself as a pers... - Siena College View Entire Review

It was so worth it! I learned so much about myself and about how truly diverse the world is. It gave me a different view of life and how everyone else lives their's. - University of Missouri - Columbia View Entire Review
A student studying abroad with CAPA The Global Education Network: London Study or Intern Abroad
I learned more than I would have ever imagined in my time studying abroad. Being away from home at college teaches you a lot about growing up and being self-sufficient, but being away from home in another country is an entirely different experience. It is such a special and eye-opening experience to live in another country. Lond... - University of Missouri - Columbia View Entire Review
while studying abroad I was able to grow so much as a person. being able to be more independent and determine what I wanted for my adult life. It gave me such a sense of clarity to be somewhere new and being able to meet new people and try new things. - University of Massachusetts Amherst / UMass View Entire Review
A student studying abroad with CAPA The Global Education Network: London Study or Intern Abroad
It was absolutely worthwhile; what didn't I learn? From academics to society, my education covered everything I had hope it would. I walked away feeling like more of a well rounded individual, more independent, more enthusiastic about travel as a whole, etc. - Lasell College View Entire Review
I learned a lot about independence. Prior to the experience, I would've never thought I was the kind of person to go out exploring on my own and interacting with strangers. While in London, I found myself getting lost walking the streets of the amazing city and just taking in the culture. - University of Missouri - Columbia View Entire Review

September 22, 2017 London The Golden Days!
I learned that I am fully capable of being independent. I learned more about who I was as a person and how I handle different situations. I am more confident in myself thanks to this experience. - Texas A&M - Corpus Christi View Entire Review
It was the best opportunity of my life and I would do it over again in a heartbeat if I could. I learned more things about myself professional and personally within 6 weeks more than I have at my 2 years in college. I found a passion in the work that I did at my internship and I found such a love for cities and for traveling. - University of Florida View Entire Review
I learned about different cultures, traditions, and values of the English culture. I also learned many pop-culture influences such as fashion and British Textiles. - Mount Saint Mary College View Entire Review
I learned so much from locals at work and in passing. I feel like I truly submerged myself in a different culture and it was fascinating to be a part of. It was easily the most worthwhile thing I've ever done and will probably ever do. - University of Missouri - Columbia View Entire Review
Studying abroad with CAPA was, truly, one of the best decisions I have ever made. When I began the process of finding a program to study in London with, there were a few things that I know I wanted: To live in a flat in the city, to be able to travel, and to have an internship. I found that CAPA would be able to give me all of t... - Rider University View Entire Review
My internship provided through CAPA gave me a lot of professional experience. Living in London gave me plenty of worldly perspective. - SUNY - College at Oswego View Entire Review
I learned a ton about the world I am living in. I learned that a lot of the struggles and challenges we face as Americans are not at all the same thing that people in other parts of the world struggle with. This experience opened my eyes to all the great things I have had a privilege to and taught me to be fortunate for this. I ... - Clark University - Worcester View Entire Review
CAPA gave me the opportunity to intern abroad in a field of my choice. They did all of the work for me in terms of finding me a company to work with and finding a supervisor for me to work under. All I had to do was tell them my preference for field work (which I put HR - human resources) and they took care of the rest for me. C... - Merrimack College View Entire Review
Studying abroad with CAPA London was definitely worthwhile! I hope to visit London again! I definitely gained a lot more confidence as a person and as a traveler and want to travel a lot more. I'm glad I was able to meet so many locals whom I still keep in contact with today. - Rollins College View Entire Review
September 17, 2018 I Miss Capa London
I matured and learned so much about other cultures that I would never have been exposed to had I not studied abroad. I discovered a lot about myself and came home the best version of myself that I could be. - SUNY - College at Oswego View Entire Review
I discovered who I am in London. - University of Delaware View Entire Review
This program helped me grow so much. I gained confidence both personally and professionally. The internship has helped me land other internships since being back and has made me confident in what I would like to do in the future. I am also now much more confident in speaking to people from all over! - Arizona State University View Entire Review
A student studying abroad with CAPA The Global Education Network: London Study or Intern Abroad
It was definitely worth it. Not only did I get to study interesting courses, but I also developed a good relationship with my professors and internship supervisors. My internship was a great platform for me to navigate my field of interest and know what I would like to pursue for my future career. - Clark University - Worcester View Entire Review

September 01, 2017 Best Experience Of My Life
I gained a sense of independence; I had to learn to do everything for myself. This was definitely a worthwhile experience and I think everyone, if they get the chance, should study abroad. - Mount Saint Mary College View Entire Review

February 27, 2017 The Time Of My Life
My time abroad in Europe was such a rewarding and life changing experience. Being able to live and work in a foreign global city taught me so much about different cultures, and taught me a lot about myself as well. My time in London allowed me to grow infinitely as a person, as I gained a new found sense of independence and appr... - SUNY - College at Oswego View Entire Review
November 25, 2016 Nina's Growth
I learned to not be afraid or intimated of having conversations with adults. I always felt that they did not care what I had to say or my opinion on anything. My boss actually challenged me and he made me realize that I have a hard time explaining myself. I did not realize that I was not open minded to certain things. So when it... - SUNY - College at Oswego View Entire Review

A student studying abroad with CAPA The Global Education Network: London Study or Intern Abroad
In addition to memories and friends that will last a lifetime, I gained many valuable life skills: independence, confidence, adaptability, cross-cultural communication, the ability to work through difficult situations. Study abroad is probably the most worthwhile and beneficial thing that I’ve done in college. Everything that I ... - University of Massachusetts Amherst / UMass View Entire Review

Take a hop across the pond and you’ll see that CAPA’s London program will always remind you you’re somewhere new. Yes, you will be in an English-speaking country, but from afternoon tea breaks to the various cultures London is home to, you will be surrounded by a set of new experiences. Try your hand at learning some new vocabulary (“trousers” are “pants”, a “flat” is an “apartment”, and let’s not get started on “chips” and “fries”…) as you take the tube (subway) to class. London has always been a center for the arts, from everything to beloved bands like The Beatles to the writings of Virginia Woolf. Enjoy the inspiration that will surround you, and create some of your best work while you create some of your best memories.

The courses, internships, service learning, and cultural activities you'll experience will be unlike anything you've known before. Our courses will challenge and inspire you to come up with new ideas and help change the world. The CAPA London Center is centrally located in the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea in two Victorian townhouses, giving you an authentic feel of the city. The CAPA London staff are available to provide support as you adapt to a new culture, as well as a 24-hour emergency hotline.
