UGA- FACS- London Study Abroad Program
The global educational and international internship opportunities are only part of the excitement. Earn 6-9 credit hours in this six-week, first session program through classes and an internship. You will live in a flat located in the heart of London.
Through the internship experience, you will have hands-on engagement with human service organizations focusing on families and children, fashion, art and design studios, advertising/public relations/marketing firms, global financial enterprises and more. You will also have ample opportunities to visit museums, take in theater, visit historic sites, attend art festivals and local markets and tour landmarks from Stonehenge, Bath, Cambridge, and the Tower of London.
The program location includes the richness of London’s museums, theater, fashion, business, and financial districts. There are opportunities for day trips to places such as Bath and Stonehenge. Then you can visit London's historical sights such as the Tower of London, St. Paul's Cathedral, Westminster Abbey, and Buckingham Palace, and then wrap it all up with a trip to fabulous markets, beautiful parks, and a delicious array of international foods. You will be staying in the heart of London in between and within walking distance of two of its most glorious and famous parks--Regents Park and Hyde Park, and near three different stops on the London Tube.
