SU London’s experienced and supportive Program Office is here to help when you need us. We can help you with your housing and roommate queries, give advice on navigating London, show you the tricks to becoming a savvy traveler and can point you in the right direction if you need to see a doctor.
With so much to distract and entertain you here in London, it’s important to remember that students also need to take care of themselves to get the most out of their semester abroad. To help students flourish alongside their studies we offer a program packed with social opportunities, food events, sports activities as well as more reflective, holistic events. Our aim is to make our students feel welcome, keep them safely housed, healthy, integrated and supported.
A signature feature of the London program are the all-school overnight field trips, which are open to all students. Experienced staff will help you make the most of your time abroad by taking you to discover the real England and Europe. Castles, countrysides, the historical, and the contemporary are all part of the rich panoply of trips on offer.
Course-Related Field Study
Take advantage of special out-of-the-classroom learning opportunities. Some courses at SU London offer field-study experience in and around London or to other cities and countries. Please see course descriptions for more information. When space is available, the trips are open to students who are not enrolled in these courses, providing they show an interest in the trip’s academic focus.
Students who elect to participate sign up and pay in London for travel/accommodation costs with a credit card.
