AIFS Study Abroad in London, England: Semester or Academic Year
Spend a semester or academic year in the classic city of London with AIFS! You’ll earn up to 15 credits per semester through a Traditional Program, Certificate in British Studies Program, Certificate in Fashion Marketing Program, or a Freshman and Sophomore Program at Richmond, the American International University in London. Courses are taught in English.
If you’re looking to earn academic credit for volunteer work, Richmond offers a Service Learning and Active Citizenship course that combines a community placement with written work. This course is based on the principles of civic engagement, ethical social responsibility and social justice. Participating students must obtain a student visa before entering the U.K.
Live in a student residence hall that is close to campus and to the famous Kensington Gardens, Natural History Museum, and West End theater district. Accommodations are in double and triple rooms, but single rooms are available on a limited basis and for an additional fee. Ten meals (5 breakfasts and 5 dinners) Monday through Friday in the student cafeteria are included in your program fee.
You’ll enjoy cultural and social activities such as guided city tours, museum visits, theater and musical performances, sporting events and day trips to nearby cities such as Brighton, Oxford and Stratford-upon-Avon.
An optional 3-day trip to Paris (taking students through the Channel Tunnel!) is offered.
