Overall Experience
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

I learned how to be independent in a foreign city and I learned how to interact with all kinds of people. Yes, it was worthwhile. - University of Hartford View Entire Review

One of the cool things I learned is that no one is going to get you where you want to be. You have to motivate and push your own self to do that. The daily tube rides were always crowded and pressed for space. If you did not move, you was not going anywhere. - Albright College View Entire Review
It was an incredibly worthwile experience. I felt like it was a really good fit for me and I loved all the academic and internship opportunities the program offered. - Clark University - Worcester View Entire Review
January 31, 2016 Amazing Experience!
It was 100 percent worthwhile. I learned so much about myself and grew into a more independent and confident person. - Saint Ambrose University View Entire Review
Studying abroad really opened my mind to the world and gave me a global perspective on everything. In general I feel like I grew so much during my time abroad through meeting new people and especially my internship. It taught me about the type of place I can see myself living in the future, and it taught me how valuable experien... - University of Hartford View Entire Review

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 08, 2017 Interning Abroad In London

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

I learned how to live independently, how to become more flexible as a student, friend, and coworker, and built a ton of self confidence! - Emerson College 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
I could not have asked for a better study abroad experience. I gained so many life long friends and traveled to more places than I could have imagined. I learned how to travel at an affordable price, the safest and easiest ways to get around cities, and became more of an overall independent person. - University of Massachusetts Amherst / UMass View Entire Review
June 02, 2016 Fun But Busy
It was definitely a worthwhile experience, I made new friends and visited different countries while learning about England when I was at home - University of Hartford View Entire Review
Studying abroad was the best time of my life, and was so worthwhile the worry and financial stress. It was my first time out of the country to live in the UK for 4 months, and it was the longest I had ever been away from home. Most days I was on my own during my commute and travels around the city, and I learned that being on yo... - Hood College View Entire Review
I learned to respect cultures that are different from my own. I also learned that I need to always act as a positive ambassador of the United States to help bridge misconceptions that people of other cultures have of us. - Siena College View Entire Review
Interning and studying with CAPA I learned a lot and was able to grow personally and professionally. I woke up each morning and was excited for work or for class and that's how I knew I chose the right program for me. With CAPA I learned new business knowledge in class and at my internship along with learning a lot about the cit... - Stonehill College 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.
