Past Review Capa London
I had an amazing time with CAPA International Education in London. Although it was initially daunting to be dropped in the middle of such a huge city with a bunch of random people, it turned out to be one of the most amazing experiences I’ve ever had in my life. CAPA was really good about trying to get you acclimated to British ... - University of Massachusetts Amherst View Entire Review

I gained an international component to my resume. I also gained friendships that will last a lifetime. - Washington State University - Pullman campus View Entire Review
Acting Training. invaluable. and immersion into the culture. invaluable. - University of Minnesota - Twin Cities View Entire Review
I learned to be more independent and go outside of my comfort zone. There are so many different kinds of people and cultures in the world. We need to broaden our horizons and learn more about the world around us. It was absolutely worthwhile! - Clark University - Worcester View Entire Review
There is too much that I learned to summarize it all... it was definitely worth it. I gained totally new skills for my professional life and new skills in general plus insight about myself and global cities. - Clark University - Worcester View Entire Review
A student studying abroad with CAPA International Education: London Study or Intern Abroad
I gained new friends for life. I learned how to be more independent and yet more involved in the world around me. It was incredibly worthwhile. - University of Massachusetts Amherst View Entire Review
I gained so much independence and a broader worldview from studying abroad. I learned how to live with others and ended up learning a lot about myself and what I want to do after graduation. It was completely worthwhile and I would do it again if given the chance. - Arizona State University View Entire Review
Yeah it was worthwhile. I loved my internship but London was not my style - Clark University - Worcester View Entire Review
While I didn't care for CAPA, I loved every minute of being in London. It was incredibly worthwhile, and I'd love to go back as soon as possible. - University of Minnesota - Twin Cities View Entire Review
In myself I've noticed a much greater tolerance for chaos, an adaptation I am reluctantly grateful to my former flat mates for. Of course, any traveling experience forces you to realize the things that are truly necessary and meaningful in life; I have developed intuitively a sense that the things that happen to people are not g... - Southwestern University View Entire Review
The four months that I lived, worked, and studied in London were some of the best and most rewarding experiences of my life. The friendships I made were first and foremost what I feel most lucky to have gained, but also to have had the opportunity to work in my field in another country was an opportunity of a lifetime. I was abl... - University of Massachusetts, Amherst View Entire Review
A student studying abroad with CAPA International Education: London Study or Intern Abroad
My study abroad semester was a huge personal expedition because I overcame many individual obstacles to achieve many goals. This took a great deal of growing up and understanding myself better while in London and my travels. My study abroad experience was a huge and great milestone in the progress in my life journey. - Auburn University View Entire Review
I learned so much from my experience abroad that it is hard to pin point on specific moment. Something I would like to touch on would be finding out about the differences in theatre there versus theatre in the United States. I found myself much more at peace with the arts in London then I have ever felt in the United States. It ... - Rider University View Entire Review
My experience was extremely worthwhile. I learned to grow and thrive in a foreign environment and I am very thankful for that opportunity. - Providence College View Entire Review
From this experience I gained valuable knowledge from my internship on how to manage my time and what a real work environment is like. Also, being emerged into a global city allowed me to find a sense of myself in the real world. Cooking my own meals, commuting to work and to class and managing my time without any assistance fro... - Stonehill College View Entire Review
I was able to live in the city and experience it as a local. I think that may have been the best part for me. - University of California - San Diego View Entire Review
I learned how to live on my own/independently, ways to balance social life/work/school, adapting to foreign environments/putting myself into unfamiliar situations. I wouldn't have given up this opportunity for the life of me. - University of Minnesota - Twin Cities View Entire Review
I learned about different cultures and how it differs from the US. - Rollins College View Entire Review
I learned that I can live away from home and be independent in a strange place. It was absolutely worth it. - Arizona State University View Entire Review
Past Review Good Times.
Very worthwhile, everyone should do it. - Northeastern University View Entire Review
A student studying abroad with CAPA International Education: London Study or Intern Abroad
I had an amazing internship in an English production company that has changed my career and my resume. I learned so much about the business and about culture. I started identifying as an American, because I have perspective. - University of Massachusetts Amherst View Entire Review
The internship component was the most beneficial/exciting part of the program. - 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.
