FIE fully recognizes the importance of visiting faculty in realizing the greatest potential of all its programs. Faculty members are, in many ways, the most important component in the success of any study abroad program. In this regard, FIE actively supports faculty in every possible way and to the best of its abilities.
FIE provides high-quality facilities and support services for US university and college study abroad and internship programs including housing, IT, and academic support.. Unlike many study abroad service providers, the senior staff of FIE come from a faculty and administrative university background. They have a ready and enduring interest in the educational and learning environment afforded by living, studying or working in another culture.
FIE provides high-quality student and faculty residential accommodation in west London close to our program facilities. FIE also provides discipline-specific internships (unpaid) and highly-qualified FIE faculty to augment visiting US faculty in London.
FIE’s Academic and Student Life facilities are ideally located in the heart of the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea. These facilities are close to the Underground, Kensington library, innumerable amenities, bookshops, and Imperial College (FIE students have temporary membership to the IC student union). In short, our headquarters benefit from an outstanding location which exploits London as a world cultural and educational center.
