With five airports and thirteen (inter)national rail stations, London is a hub to Europe – and the world. Many of our students make the most of their time at Syracuse London with ‘mini-breaks’ to Prague, Oslo, and Marrakech. What sometimes goes under-explored is, in fact, the amazing diversity of London itself. The metro’s thirty-two boroughs – plus the City of London itself – all have their own vibe and rich array of cafes, shopping, sport, art, and night life to offer.
Love London is our programming launch, giving students the opportunity to dive into their new city. Over the course of their first weeks studying abroad, Love London takes students on a journey: They first visit London as a tourist through events like the iconic double-decker red bus sightseeing trips and the London Eye, then delve deeper into the city and learn more about its eccentricities, neighbourhoods, and proximity to…well, just about everything!
Students have the chance to select from a wide range of activities. The calendar of events for Fall 2018 is shown below; more details about each of the options available can be found here.
