Overall Experience
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
It was completely worthwhile. I learned that I want to work with kids and live in a city and I gained independence because I went abroad without knowing anyone on my program. - University of Michigan - Ann Arbor View Entire Review
I learned a lot about myself and other cultures. I gained many new, American friends. It was very worthwhile. - University of Pittsburgh - Pittsburgh View Entire Review
A student studying abroad with CAPA International Education: London Study or Intern Abroad
I consider myself a very open-minded person, but I never realized how forceful American culture was my whole life. London is an incredibly multi-cultural city so I was able to experience more than just the stereotypical British culture. It was honestly the most amazing opportunity I've ever had in my life and I miss the city ter... - University of Massachusetts - Dartmouth View Entire Review
I learned a lot about myself and that I most certainly hope to live abroad for a few years. It is a lifestyle that i appreciate and enjoy, and want to further experience. I was a very defining experience in my life. - University of Massachusetts Amherst View Entire Review
It was beyond my expectations. I learned how to interact with different cultures and how to be self sufficient. - University of Minnesota - Twin Cities View Entire Review
I learned how to face challenges without leaning on my immediate friends and family. I also learned to step out of my comfort zones and do things that scare me. The experience was 100% worth while. - Rollins College View Entire Review
i learned how strong and independent i really am, and i learned how important it is to step outside your comfort zone. - Rollins College View Entire Review
A student studying abroad with CAPA International Education: London Study or Intern Abroad
I learned a lot about myself from studying abroad, which sounds cheesy and cliche, but that's because it's true. I become very independent while studying abroad, figuring out the tube and bus systems on my own and learning to budget for weekly expenses and traveling alone across Europe. But I also made lots of new friends, both ... - Rollins College View Entire Review
Past Review Extroidonary
I did an internship and it really helped me professionally, I am still in touch with my supervisor and will see him in a couple weeks in Boulder. I also made friends and got to see how a huge city functions in another part of the world! - University of Colorado - Boulder 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
Past Review Great Experience
I learned a lot about myself and what it feels like to be outside of my own comfort zone and family. I also learned to be more open to new experiences and meet new people. - Northeastern University View Entire Review
I gained international work experience and got a good taste of London. Overall, it was worthwhile. - University of Minnesota - Twin Cities View Entire Review
My internship helped me to gain valuable work experience and find my passion for social entrepreneurship as a viable career path. - Rollins College View Entire Review
I've learned about living in a global city, self-travel and getting along on my own. It was worthwhile, but not because of the program. - University of Minnesota - Twin Cities View Entire Review
I gained an understanding of British culture and society. I gained skills and experiences that are currently making me a top prospect in my job search for post-college. It was definitely worthwhile and I recommend it highly to all students looking for a life-changing experience - Miami University of Ohio View Entire Review
It was the best four months of my life, and I learned so much about myself and what I'm capable of. - Rollins College View Entire Review
Learned about how to live on my own and deal with different types of people (4 very different roommates). Learned that language differences are a huge part of cultural exchange, and how similar Western (American/European) cultures are. - University of Minnesota - Twin Cities View Entire Review
Being on my own. Yes, very empowering - University of Minnesota - Twin Cities 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.
