Spend your summer exploring one of the world’s most cosmopolitan cities! Between its rich history, vibrant city life, and world class entertainment, London remains one of the primary destinations for students from across the globe. Join USF students and faculty this summer for a four week experience in the heart of London all while earning USF direct credit towards your degree program. Students will reside in single, en-suite accommodations at the University College London’s John Dodgson House or James Lighthill House located near King’s Cross just a short walk away from the British Museum.
London is one of the world's biggest and most vibrant cities. The multicultural population offers cuisine of all flavors, as well as many other exciting foreign influences. Turn the corner, and you'll be amazed at the old historic architecture of many castles, cathedrals, and statues that are scattered throughout the city. Students are housed in the heart of London. The Kings Cross neighborhood is only steps away from the British Library (home to the Magna Carta!) and Kings Cross train station (yes, platform 9 3/4 is there). A short ride on the Tube (subway system) and you can find yourself at the British Museum, Buckingham Palace, Camden Town, the West End theatre distrcit, the trendy Southwark area, and much more. There is no way to explain the energy, vibrance, and opportunity in words and do this city justice-- you'll just need to go to see for yourself!
