This was such an incredible experience for theatre majors as I learned so much about theatre and it was great training. I also feel like I know London like the back of my hand and fell in love with this city. Very worthwhile as I feel more educated about theatre.

* What do you know now that you wish you knew before going on this program? You will not get to travel as much on this program as others, but it is fine. Unlike other people who traveled constantly, I feel like I was able to come to know London because I spent so much time here and I was able to do so much here and in the surrounding area. Do not let it deter you from doing this program because on the weekends you can do short trips or day trips to great places within a few hours of London.
