Ithaca College London Center - The Ithaca College London Center, owned and operated by Ithaca College since 1972, is one of the longest-standing study abroad programs in London. We offer a wide variety of courses with a Liberal Arts focus, an intensive theater program, an honors program, and a cultural internship program. Students can study at the London Center in the fall, spring, or even during the summer.

Exchange Programs - Ithaca College has exchange agreements with a number of universities around the world. The programs work by sending a student abroad in exchange for receiving a student from a partnering institution. Exchange programs are a bit more competitive in nature as students must have a GPA of 3.0 or above (in some instances 3.2 or above) and there are a limited amount of spots available each semester. Students who choose to go on an exchange program are also expected to possess a high degree of independence and maturity.

Short-term Faculty-Led Programs - Short-term study programs can be a fantastic learning experience for students, especially those who are unable to study abroad for a whole semester. These programs are led by Ithaca College faculty; vary from year to year; and they may take place during winter break, spring/fall break or during the summer.


Ithaca College is affiliated with several study abroad organizations that offer programs in various destinations worldwide. These organizations include AIFS, CEA CAPA, CIEE, CIS Abroad, IAU Study Abroad, IES Abroad, SIT Study Abroad, SSA Education Abroad, and TEAN by WorldStrides. It is important to note that some but not all programs offered by these organizations, with a couple exceptions, are affiliated with the College. We are also affiliated with multiple colleges and universities around the world. You can find a full listing of current affiliated programs here. Note that this list is subject to change without notice.

Please be aware that the admission requirements for affiliated programs vary depending on the specific program. Typically, our affiliated partners require a minimum GPA of 2.5 or above and a good judicial history, although the GPA requirement may vary based on the program. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.


If one of the Ithaca College, Exchange, or affiliated programs does not seem appropriate, Ithaca students can study abroad through any program run by an accredited institution. Every student has different needs and interests - whether personal, academic or financial, and there are hundreds of well-respected, accredited study abroad programs all over the world that will satisfy individual student needs.
