Fantastic year abroad in London

Fantastic year abroad, although it will take some time to get bac k into the rhythm when you return to your home university. Easy access to Europe.

Excellent Program

I went to this program a few years ago and had a great experience. The classes run most of the day, and generally center around a project. Working in a group with people from many different countries was a little tough at times, but I feel that I benefited from the trip. Also, LSE gives you a lot of freedom. Many people went away on trips each weekend, which was great, but I would definitely recommend sticking around London. As everyone says: be prepared to spend a lot of money. A beer is going to run you about 5 pounds which can be $10, and that adds up fast. I would recommend this program to anyone who wants to spend a few weeks of the summer getting a credit and having a great time.

Interesting, short term class opportunity - London

A great way to take classes in a short time period. Dates are accessible, classes are interesting, and it is easy to get into the program. London kicks ass!

good administration, well run

The program runs well for a study abroad experience at a university. There was a good orientation events and tours. There was a lot of free time to explore the city; it was generally very independent and hands-off. Library was great, some facilities like computers were limited. Oration was great.
