Where you'll study

The London Study Center is in a beautiful, multi-story building just steps from the British Museum, Covent Garden, and Soho. The bright, beautiful classrooms are each equipped with laptops, digital projectors, and white boards. You can also use the computer lab, library, study room, and student lounge with wireless Internet throughout the building. About ten minutes from the center is the London administrative office. The admin office is adjacent to a variety of restaurants and cafés, making it a convenient stop for advising sessions and other check-ins with study center staff.

As a communications major, this for-credit internship gave me a broader scope of what I could do with my major. It also gave me a sense of security and confidence that I'd picked the right major for me.
