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*.
Internship & internship seminar (many different fields of study available)
Choice of two classes (see below for course offerings)
Applications are due February 15, 2013 and can be downloaded from /oip/docs/study_abroad/applications/london_center/lc_application/. Students applying for an internship will also need to complete an internship application, also available on our website at /oip/London_Internship_Application.pdf.

The Office of International Programs will put together a group flight package. Students may choose the group flight package or may opt to make their own travel arrangements. Students making their own arrangements should plan to arrive in London no later than noon on Tuesday, May 21.
The London Center will organize some day trips for students participating in the summer program. The destinations may include Brighton, Cambridge, and other places of interest near London.
