Overall Experience
I learned a lot about myself and what I'm capable of emotionally, physically, and mentally. I learned that the world is not as big as I always thought it was. - Clark University - Worcester View Entire Review
I learned a lot about other cultures. Both from the British people I met in London as well as other international travelers I met whilst abroad. My trip was completely worthwhile. The reason I did not give my experience in London a perfect 10 is because of my schooling. Had I done a different program that allowed study with loca... - Clark University - Worcester View Entire Review
I learned who I was as a person. I was forced to step out side of my comfort zone and do something I have never done before. Going to a foreign country by myself was scary and I thought that I wouldn't make any friends. Looking back, that was a ridiculous thought. I gained valuable friends from all over the US that I still keep ... - University of Massachusetts Amherst View Entire Review

I can't even begin to explain. Spending a long chunk of time in another country is a remarkable, profoundly changing experience. To be so deeply immersed in another city's culture is an experience everybody should try to have. Study abroad matured me and changed me, for the better, without a doubt. - University of Delaware View Entire Review
January 22, 2014 A London Adventure
It was absolutely worth it. It was life-changing: I gained independence, honed my decision making skills, made new friends, thrived in a new culture, saw new countries - Clark University - Worcester View Entire Review
My experiences in London were definitely some of the greatest of my life. I learned so much not just about other people and cultures but also about myself and my own culture. Personally, I became more confident, more self-assured, and more independent. I saw that I could take care of myself and survive in the world. I was challe... - Westminster College, PA View Entire Review
I had my doubts about studying abroad but once i arrived to London it all changed. It is definitely an experience that i will remember my whole life. The people and just how different the city is opens your eyes in to seeing how amazing the world is. I learned to better budget myself as everything in London is a bit more expensi... - Arizona State University View Entire Review
I learned about many different cultures and people. I also learned about the international workplace. Most importantly, I learned a lot about myself and what it means to be independent, smart, and confident. - Merrimack College View Entire Review

January 05, 2014 London At Full Speed
Most importantly, I have learned to believe in myself more. My internship did this by letting me oversee the whole “We, Macbeth” production. I believe that I am capable to produce great things if I just stay positive. Being a Senior I am beyond nervous about leaving University, but after being a part of this internship , I h... - Clark University - Worcester View Entire Review

I learned how to adapt to unfamiliar situations and learned how to live independently, self-compromising and learning to "roll with the punches." My experience abroad was absolutely worthwhile! - Westminster College, PA View Entire Review
This was an absolutely worthwhile experience. Cultural immersion, time management, and personal independence were just a few things I learned during my time abroad. I would do it again in a heartbeat, and it was without a doubt the best semester of my life. - University of Delaware View Entire Review
I have more appreciation for other countries, cultures, history and art now. It was very interesting to learn about a country or a piece of art and go see it in person. - Arizona State University View Entire Review
A student studying abroad with CAPA International Education: London Study or Intern Abroad
I learned that you need to trust people. I had so many experiences that I know friends or family may have deemed as unsafe because they involved trusting strangers. People are good, and good people do good to good people. Don't be afraid of what MIGHT happen, because then nothing ever will happen. Be brave, but be smart. There i... - Rider University View Entire Review
I gained a much more global perspective from my experience abroad. I learned how to be a Brit, and specifically a Londoner, and learned so much about my host country. By having an internship, I experienced what it is like to be a native, working and taking classes. Although I wish there were a maybe button on whether or not I wo... - Clark University - Worcester View Entire Review
I learned to be independent and learned quite a lot about London. I also learned how to acclimate to new environments and culture. My experience was definitely worthwhile! - Clark University - Worcester View Entire Review
A student studying abroad with CAPA International Education: London Study or Intern Abroad
Having never left the country, I can't beleive it was all real. I saw 8 countries while abroad...EIGHT. Yes, my experience was worthwhile. The only thing I'd change for next time is doing more research ahead of time so I could fit in even more. - University of Massachusetts Amherst View Entire Review
It was DEFINITELY worthwhile! I learned that I have a passion for people-- I may be shy at first, but I love people and culture! - University of Massachusetts Amherst View Entire Review
January 15, 2014 Best Choice I Have Made
I learned so much about myself and it really helped me grow as a person to become more independent and cultured - Arizona State University View Entire Review
A sense of independence. And yes, this program was incredibly worthwhile. - SUNY - College at Oswego View Entire Review
My semester in London with CAPA has not only been the best semester of my life, but the overall best experience of my life. Studying abroad forced me to step out of my comfort zone and from that I have become a more adventurous, mature and independent person. I now have this unsettling hunger to travel and learn about different... - University of Massachusetts Amherst View Entire Review

Studying and interning through CAPA London is the best decision I've made so far in my academic career. It was a great program that allowed me to make international connections both personally and professionally. What's great about CAPA London is that they are all about you getting the most out of your study abroad experience. T... - SUNY - College at Oswego View Entire Review

Internship was extremely helpful especially since I am a senior. - Arizona State University View Entire Review
A student studying abroad with CAPA International Education: London Study or Intern Abroad
Since I worked 20 hours a week at my internship with The Walkabout Foundation and only took 3 courses, I felt that most of my experience revolved around my internship. I could not have been placed with a better organization. My placement was organized and a small and rapidly growing non profit organization that raises money for ... - SUNY - College at Oswego View Entire Review
I gain the ability to understand another culture ideas and believes. This was one of the best experience of my life! - SUNY - Buffalo View Entire Review
A student studying abroad with CAPA International Education: London Study or Intern Abroad
This experience taught me how independent I could be. I was perfectly fine just walking around London by myself not really caring where I ended up, which is something I never do in America. This being said I made friendships with people that I am blessed to have met. - Arizona State University 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.
