excellent and included an internship

Studying abroad in BU's London program was one of the best experiences. I was immersed into the culture, able to travel Europe, and still take classes. I also completed an internship at a law firm, and it has provided me with great work experience.

Best decision I've made at BU

Studying in London was one of the best decisions I've made thus far at BU. I finished 2 semesters worth of class in 6 weeks and had a hands on experience with field trips and group projects. With a small program I got to know all 14 of my class mates and I came back to BU with a whole other set of friends. I was able to travel on weekends and absolutely loved the cultural experience. I would recommend London abroad to anyone.

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.

London's amazing but pricey

Being in London was amazing and many of the BU apartment buildings were nicer than expected. The classes were easy, but long -- 4 hours. The internship part could have been better. I had an internship I hated because I wasn't aware of all my options. However, London is amazing (but expensive) with tons of places to go out and it's easy to travel to other cities.

Amazing Program in the Heart of South Kensington

Boston University's London Program is amazing. You live in the heart of South Kensington, and are taught by really engaging professors, and are given wonderful internship opportunities. If you have the opportunity to go, you without a doubt should.

Not much Brit Contact

Attracts a strange clientele. It's great for internships but not for exposing yourself to Brits.

One of the most extraordinary experiences...

One of the most extraordinary experiences I have participated in. Without a language barrier, cultural exposure is easier. The program itself is great. Trips all over the country, and to the European continent and Ireland along with some academic work from highly reputable professors from Oxford and the like.
