Study Abroad in London


Are you interested in studying abroad in London this Spring? Come to the information session this Friday to learn more about the English Department’s long-running (since 1986!) Spring in London program.

Students from all majors and all UW campuses are welcome to apply.

Apply online through the Study Abroad website.

Application Deadline: November 15, 2016

Spring in London: March 22 – June 3, 2017

During Spring Quarter 2017, the Department of English will again offer its highly successful program of study in London. The program will consist of four courses: London’s Contemporary Theater (ENGL 444) taught by Professor John Webster of the UW English Department, Representing London: Writing and the Experience of Place (ENGL 381), taught by Professor Anis Bawarshi of the UW English Department, Art, Architecture, and Society (ART H 399) taught by British Professor Peter Buckroyd, and Contemporary Britain (HIST 490) taught by British Professor Michael Fosdal. Professors Buckroyd and Fosdal are our London faculty, and have been teaching our students to rave reviews for more than ten years. (Three classes are considered a full-time load, but students may take all four if they wish at no additional cost.)

Housing and 2 meals a day (breakfasts and dinners) for students will be arranged with families in London. A London Transport pass, good for travel on subways and buses, will be supplied (and is included in the program fee.)

“Studying in London has been the highlight of my time as a UW student. Words can’t really describe how exciting the city is and how much there is to experience and learn. Sometimes I couldn’t believe how much history was at my fingertips. The faculty was great and the classes were fun and interesting. My fellow classmates also became great friends during our stay in London, a bonus which I count immeasurable!” (Erin McKiernan, past participant)
