London Courses

All students in London enroll in one of our Key Courses. These courses help you to contextualize your experience in London in a broad, academic manner. Depending on the program, students may also have a list of Elective Courses available to choose from. Students participating in the Study & Internship or Study & Service Internship programs will take an Experiential Education Course. Courses are subject to change based on student enrollment and faculty availability.

FIE also offers three exciting, academic weekend study tours exploring British history and culture. Led by expert faculty, participants travel by train to unique towns to experience the sights, sounds, and tastes of the UK at great value. Note: Students who are enrolled in Shakespeare and Elizabethan Literature, Contemporary British Theatre, or Food, Society and Culture in Britain, will have early access to specific Study Tours taught by their faculty (any remaining places will be offered to all students via the Extra Curricular Calendar).
