Overall Experience
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
A student studying abroad with CAPA The Global Education Network: London Study or Intern Abroad
I gained a lot from this program — having never had roommates, or my own place, I got the opportunity to live independently for the first time in my life. Coming from a small town, the transition to city life was transformative too. I would say the trip was absolutely worthwhile for me, but a big flaw is a lack of immersion.... - Hood College View Entire Review
From my abroad experience, I gained a newfound confidence in myself and my ability to navigate the world and certain social situations. I am better able to communicate successfully with people and am more excited to participate in activities that may initially make me a little nervous. It was definitely worthwhile and essential ... - Clark University - Worcester View Entire Review
A student studying abroad with CAPA The Global Education Network: London Study or Intern Abroad
Besides gaining what you're actually there for (great work experience that relates to your major and class credit), I really gained confidence and independence. Learning to navigate a foreign city, adapting to a culture, meeting new people, things like cooking for yourself and traveling to other countries - it really requires pl... - Purdue University View Entire Review
A student studying abroad with CAPA International Education: London Study or Intern Abroad
I learned so much about myself and the world. I realized that I lived in a bubble, and needed to gain perspective. I saw how other people and countries lived, and it taught me to be more open and learn to love whatever I was exposed to. It was incredibly worthwhile and rewarding. - University of Mississippi View Entire Review
A student studying abroad with CAPA International Education: London Study or Intern Abroad
While in London, I really grew as a person. I overcame a lot of my anxiety, which was huge for me. I gained the courage to step out of my comfort zone and leave home. I have learned I have a passion for photography and art. I have also become a better listener, an active learner, more independent, more assertive, have learned to... - Arizona State University View Entire Review

I learned a lot about myself, the world, London culture, and from my classes as well. it was 100% worthwhile. I was able to step out of my comfort zone, make new friends, and travel the world. - University of Delaware View Entire Review
Best three months of my life, hands down. I wish I was still there!! Working and living in London really sparked an interest in living abroad and I hope to return someday and live there for a few years. - University of Massachusetts Amherst / UMass View Entire Review

I gained so much life experience. It broadened my worldview and helped my realize what I want to do after graduation. It awaken the travel bug inside of me. I came home with amazing memories, new friends, work experience, and a new home away from home. - University of Missouri - Columbia View Entire Review
A student studying abroad with CAPA International Education: London Study or Intern Abroad
This experience was extremely worthwhile. I was extremely worried about graduating this year and having to find and maintain a job while living alone. This program really helped with that. My internship gave me experience in my job field and I feel so much more confident about joining the workforce soon. I also interned for a po... - Walsh University View Entire Review
A student studying abroad with CAPA International Education: London Study or Intern Abroad
For me studying abroad was a chance for me to step outside of my comfort zone and make decisions for myself and no one else. I was able to travel deeper within myself than ever before and find out who i truly was as a person as well as discover new parts of me that I never even knew were there. I learned so much about London, th... - SUNY - College at Oswego View Entire Review

October 18, 2015 Living Across The Pond
During my experience abroad, what I learned the most about was probably myself. The program gives you so much time to do whatever you choose, it can show you more about who you truly are. For example, when an empty day presents itself (which I found many of), how you choose to spend it is up to you, and probably a few friends yo... - University of Florida View Entire Review
A student studying abroad with CAPA The Global Education Network: London Study or Intern Abroad
Going into this program, I had never been exposed to any international experiences. It was nerve-wracking and forced me to step out of my comfort zone, but it taught me more about myself than I could have ever imagined. For one, I gained a sense of confidence by being abroad on my own for two months. I was forced to learn a new ... - SUNY - College at Oswego View Entire Review

International work experience and the chance to travel. - Clark University - Worcester View Entire Review
I learned how to be independent and also where I eventually want to live at some point in my life. When I explored London for the first time I instantly knew that it was the place for me. I matured so much and learned so much about myself that it made all of the effort and sacrifice really worthwhile. I can safely say that it wa... - Clark University - Worcester View Entire Review
During my time in London I was fortunate enough to call myself a resident one of the world's greatest cities. I recieved an excellent education, and even got to work in the legal field. I gained a great amount of insight on the professional legal field in London. However, the most important part of the trip for me was cultural i... - Siena College View Entire Review

I learned so much about the film industry which is what I want to build a career in. I was able to study while also gaining valuable perspective and work experience in my field and practice my communication skills at events while meeting locals. I was able to explore London and gain confidence and independence as a person. This ... - University of North Carolina - Asheville View Entire Review
It sounds cheesy, but this experience truly helped me develop as both a person and a student in ways I couldn't have predicted. I would not give it up for anything. - Rollins College View Entire Review

August 21, 2014 Study In London!!
I learned that I am a very independent person, and that I really want to experience the world. I loved London and the rest of the UK, and traveling is a very important experience in someone's life in order to get more cultured, meet new people, and live abroad. - University of Delaware 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.
