Prospective Students

Summer Program

If you cannot study in London for an entire semester, consider taking advantage of one of two summer options*.  Both options take place between mid-May and early July and last for six weeks.  The first summer option consists of an internship and internship seminar.  Internships, or work placements, are available in a variety of fields.  We ask students to submit a resume and cover letter and to complete a questionnaire indicating their interests so that the London Center staff can match them with the best field placement.  The second summer option is to take two courses, each worth three credits*.  

Option 1
Internship & internship seminar (many different fields of study available)

Option 2
Choice of two classes
