Overall Experience
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
Past Review Capa London
I signed up for this program with a friend because I was nervous to go on my own. Looking back on it now, I regret that decision. I wish I never did because it really hurt our friendship. I learned a lot about myself, about other countries and cultures, and I absolutely loved it. I was able to travel a lot and saw a lot of the w... - Rider University View Entire Review
I am not lying when I say this was the most worthwhile experience of my entire life. Having an internship abroad was the perfect experience. And not just any internship, but one with the NBC bureau. Not many programs have those type of connections, and the experience I gained there was invaluable. I felt behind before studying ... - University of Missouri - Columbia View Entire Review
My internship through CAPA was absolutely the best decision I could have made. Yes, you have to pay for it, but when you get back to the States with a letter of recommendation coming from London, it will more than pay for itself. - Missouri State University View Entire Review
I gained an affinity for learning about new cultures. Though I was able to travel all over Europe and beyond, I only scratched the surface of the list of cities I was to visit. This experience was 100 percent worthwhile. - University of Delaware View Entire Review
Past Review Fun And American
I had a lot of fun but and I did learn a lot about British culture. - Clark University - Worcester View Entire Review
Past Review I Grew Up A Lot.
It was very worthwhile. I learned a lot about myself and grew up a lot. I became more aware of things such as my own cultural surroundings as well as aspects of my own self. - California State University - Long Beach View Entire Review
I learned that I don't want to live in one place for the rest of my life. I want to live in many different places. And that each location gives me a new opportunity to learn something new. - University of Pittsburgh - Pittsburgh View Entire Review
Past Review Awesome
Gave me a new perspective on my education (I am pre-med and medical education is VERY different in England). The experience definitely broadened my horizons - it was very worthwhile! - University of Pittsburgh - Pittsburgh 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
I learned to adapt to a new city, which in my opinion was a very worthwhile experience. - Clark University - Worcester View Entire Review
I have become much more independent, confident, and adaptable. I now know that I am capable of adapting and thriving in one of the most important, bustling cities in the world. - University of South Florida View Entire Review
I became more independent and confident. I met some amazing people that have become some of my best friends, and having the opportunity to live and work in a foreign country will give my a competitive advantage over my peers. - University of Pittsburgh - Johnstown View Entire Review
CAPA London is one of the most diverse, successful study abroad program as I know of, and definitely the most amazing experience in my life! It totally opened up a new world of mine in terms of career perspectives, cultural understandings, friendships, etc. People in London are the nicest and most awesome. And the things you can... - SUNY - Buffalo View Entire Review
I met people I would have never met before and experienced something some people only dream of. It was absolutely worthwhile and I couldn't have imagined doing it any differently. - SUNY - Albany View Entire Review
Past Review Go With Capa
I met so many great people and allowed myself to go out of my comfort zone. I haven't met one person that regrets their London experience. - Arizona State University View Entire Review
I would do it again in a heartbeat - Indiana University/Purdue University at Fort Wayne View Entire Review
confidence, yes - Illinois State University View Entire Review

About

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.
