Boston University London History Programme Review

Studying abroad with the BU London History Programme was an excellent experience! The history we covered in the courses was intriguing and diverse and many of the subjects were often supported by related field trips throughout the city. We also went on a day trip to Oxford and and overnight trip to Liverpool, which was particularly helpful to gaining a better perspective into the history and variety of culture within the UK. The research seminar was my favorite part of the study abroad programme as we were able to utilize amazing research sources such as the Oxford Dictionary of National Biography, the London Library, and the National Archives at Kew. The location of BU's London facilities is conveniently located near some of the major museums, such as the Victoria & Albert and the Natural History Museum, as well as Hyde Park and Royal Albert Hall.

The Best Semester

BU Sydney is the best study abroad program at BU. When else will you get to live in Australia for 5 months? You will have the most enlightening, fun and freeing time of your life.

Academics:
The wine class is incredible, there is a trip to the Hunter Wine Region included as well as numerous wine tasting throughout the class. That being said, it is also a rare and exciting opportunity to thoroughly learn about wine. I was able to attend a well-paying job as a server in an upscale restaurant because of that class.

Living Situation:
Very nice, new, modern dorms with your own room and a great rooftop deck

Cultural Immersion:
There's not much culture to be had in Sydney - it's very similar to America - however, you are only as immersed as you put yourself out there to be. There is much to be learned from Australian culture and its influences, and the program does a great job of paying for an incredible trip to Melbourne, taking you on fascinating trips and cruises of the Harbor, and creating city-wide scavenger hunts. I've never seen a program that encourages you more to immerse yourself culturally. Well done, BU Sydney

Program Administration:
Mark, the program director, has led a ridiculously epic life (sang in the Sydney opera house, been a sheep farmer, been in a rock band) - seriously just ask him about it. Other than that, the administration is pretty good - Pasquale is not pleasant to work with, however.

Faculty Was Fantastic, Even If Courses Were Not Rigorous

British faculty was fantastic, even if courses were not as rigorous as those here at home. Accommodations are beautiful, right in South Kensington, and program provides a multitude of excursions throughout the UK over the duration of the semester program. The second half of the semester is filled with an internship alongside one course and the program works hard to find a place for you in your desired industry.

Less than ideal host family

Living with a host family was less than ideal. However, this tiny city situated between Mont Blanc and Geneva was fabulous for meeting other students and for traveling across Europe. Grenoble is a scientific mecca, with some of the best engineering programs in the country. Great skiing close by as well!
