Overview
IES-London
Tower Bridge

London, characterized by centuries-old traditions, is the ideal place to study abroad. Past and present are ever entwined in this city, and opportunities for experiencing London's unique culture and history are limitless.

London's international character is evident in every neighborhood, where people of different cultural, ethnic, and socio-economic backgrounds live and work together. This diversity is remaking London, bringing a new energy to its business, arts, and sense of heritage.

Founded in 1972, the IES London program features concentrations in British Literature and Drama and International Studies as well as Area Studies in such fields as communications, history, law, sociology, and women's studies. Four additional program choices are the IES internship program, IES tutorials, Creative Workshops, and enrollment in outside courses in a range of disciplines at British universities. Creative Workshops are taught by IES in Theater Arts, Cinema and Creative Writing; the curriculum in the creative and performing arts also includes Studio Art and Music History and Theory at British universities. Tutorials are offered on special topics in various concentrations.

Internships are available during the semester; please see the IES website for more information.
