Don’t Attend Here

Classes are mediocre. Did not learn anything significant in any of my classes. Lots of busy work, classes are 3hr 15min long and professors know it is a waste of time. Did not accommodate disability. Roommates were all racist and cliquey. Always ignored me or was rude, but giggling and laughing amongst each other. Talked to other people of color and they agreed. What else do you expect putting together a group of people who have never met? Please apply to a study abroad program within your uni!!

What was your funniest moment?
Nothing funny. Very lonely. Had high hopes and took a chance but was left feeling exactly what I expected
Pros
  • City life
  • Lots of free time
Cons
  • Not accommodating
  • Racist roommates/no switching apartments
  • Curriculum

Study Abroad in London

I had an amazing time studying abroad with CEA CAPA program in London. My housing was amazing, it definitely surprised me how nice and modern it was. I was also put into one of the only flats with air conditioning. I loved my neighborhood my flat resided in. it was only a 40 minute commute to the CAPA center and making that commute was easy and smooth. we had a lot of support at the CAPA center. if we ever needed anything we could go to the front desk with any questions or concerns we might have. The staff was friendly and I appreciated the support system we had.

If you did this all over again, what's one thing you would change?
I would explore more of the city/travel to more places in Europe
Pros
  • Easy to travel throughout Europe
  • Cultural Immersion
  • Easy to balance school with traveling

Studying Abroad with Ease and Fun!

I have CEA CAPA to thank for a wonderful experience! It indeed was the most fun I have had! I don't think that there is another way to travel that beats studying abroad with CAPA! It gave me so much freedom while making me feel safe and cared for.

I could not recommend more!

Also, the numerous activities and experiences that were provided by CAPA made it easy because so many things were planned by them, and all you had to do was join in if you chose to! It made it super easy to have a few fun things to do that you didn't have to plan yourself! Which for me meant I could spend a lot more time planning certain things I wanted to do!

Pros
  • Variety of classes to choose from
  • Transportation was taken care of in advance - and all you had to do was swipe your pass!

CEA Capa London Review

I had a wonderful time in London with CEA Capa. One of the things that I enjoyed about the program was that I felt like I had a good work to trave balance. The staff at Capa are super encouraging and willing to allow students to explore the world around them. My professors did have lots of academic rigor, but they were also readily available to give help when needed. Some growing pains happen when you study abroad, and these professors are more than willing to help you adjust. Overall, I recommend this program.

Pros
  • Amazing Professors
  • London is such a global city and offers diversity
  • London has great food
Cons
  • Be prepared for a commute: Mine was 45 mins

My Autumn Abroad In London

It's always difficult to summarize the four months I lived in London outside of just saying "it was great" or "I loved it." CAPA provided me with a handful of great experiences ranging from getting to Dover Castle & The Cliffs of Dover to getting to see Canterbury and so forth. I lived in a gorgeous neighborhood, Little Venice in a three-story flat. One my favorite parts about London was the food and the grocery shopping, to me it personally ranks above grocery shopping in the U.S. There's an endless supply of things to do and places to see in London. Even after the program had ended, I felt like there was so much I didn't do, and I did a lot. My best piece of advice, never let a day go to waste as long as you take care of yourself and have fun.

What is your advice to future travelers on this program?
Take advantage of every day, go explore places, and hang with friends, the time goes by so fast. Just don't let time go to waste because you will make it what it is.
Pros
  • Endless things to do
  • Incredibly safe
  • Good Groceries
Cons
  • Busy foot-traffic
  • Dirty streets

Studying Abroad in London

I loved studying abroad with the CEA CAPA program in London. Our housing was very nice; we were in the center of London in a flat that had everything we needed. If anything ever broke or needed attention, there was an on-call number that was always available. The staff at the center itself were always kind and genuinely cared about our well-being. If you ever had a problem, they made it abundantly clear that they were available and had the resources to solve any problem to make sure our experience was amazing! They also had a ton of outside activities to immerse in cultural activities through the school itself.

Pros
  • Easy Travel through Europe
  • Educational learning
  • Cultural Immersion

CEA CAPA London Theatre Arts

I really enjoyed studying abroad with CEA CAPA in London this past semester. Most of my classes were excellent, with very attentive and engaged professors. They always took us on field study trips which was a great way to contextualize what we discussed in class, as well as a nice way to get out into new parts of the city. I am a Theatre/Media Comm major, and it was important to me that wherever I studied abroad I could take theatre studies classes. I am not a performer, which limited me from a few of the programs my college marked for Theatre Majors. But there were a few choices for theatre classes at CAPA which allowed me to stay in my academic interests. London is also bursting with performances to attend, one of which was written by one of my professors. I got to see so many shows, visit so many museums, and just discover new places every day.

While I did not do an internship abroad, I had roommates who did and they had a pretty good time. It was very time consuming for them, but they made the experience work for their schedule. Everyone had a different environment, working with companies across the city, so the intensity depended on where students were placed.

One thing to consider is that CEA CAPA isn't at a British university, it's a program with just study abroad students. I didn't mind this and felt good knowing I was at a similar level as my classmates, but if someone wanted to be taking classes with British students, this might not be the choice for them. CAPA has it's own building with classrooms and a lounge, and everyone there was really friendly and willing to help you with whatever you needed. They sponsored multiple activities like a trip to Stonehenge and Bath, a tour of the Tower of London, and tickets to see a West End show. There were also mid term and end of term dinners to celebrate our hard work.

I am not a city person but I adapted better than I thought I would, especially with the London Underground. CAPA provided us with Oyster cards for full travel throughout the inner zones, so we were pretty free to explore. It was sort of loud outside our flat building most nights and our flat was sort of small for all seven of us living there, sharing one stove and oven for individual meals. But I liked our neighborhood and how close we were to the tube stop and a couple grocery stores.

Overall, I had a great time in London and with CEA CAPA.

Pros
  • Lots of field study experiences outside the classroom
  • Fridays off (good time to explore)
Cons
  • Small flat for 7 students
  • Internships can be time consuming

CEA CAPA London Study Abroad Program

My experience studying abroad in London was phenomenal and something I recommend to many of my younger friends who have time left in their undergraduate programs. Studying abroad not only was a fun and new experience, but it was important and meaningful in my personal and professional life. Professionally, I was able to intern at a one of London's largest hospitals and have multiple operational roles within their school program. I also am proud to say to two of my supervisors are mentors and friends to me now and provided me and will continue to provide me with valuable insight. On a social level, I was able to pursue a hobby of mine, travel, with some friends that I came with and many new ones I made along the way. It also was just so fun, to be honest. In all facets, the programs was wonderful and I would recommend to any type of student.

Pros
  • Great Academics and helpful statf
  • nice housing accommodations
  • Great internship placement
Cons
  • Commute to academic building (could be long depending on where you are living)
