Yes, I recommend this program

My amazing 3 months at UCL

My API housing was in the center of the city, a 5 minute walk from campus, a 30 second walk to the tube, and was within walking distance of many landmarks. I lived in a better location then most of the University students, as well other study abroad students. The support given to me was outstanding before I left for the trip as well as upon my return to the United States. The staff on the ground in London was amazing (Rachel was like a mother to us), and made me truly feel like London was my home. They organized extremely cool trips around the city (and country), and were always present if we had questions or concerns. I would without reservation recommend this program for anyone interested in studying abroad in London.

What would you improve about this program?
It would have been nice to have some excursions provided outside of the country (even for additional cost).

London, although typically regarded for its architecture and city lifestyle, is made up of 40% public green space in the form of incredibly lush parks. London has created an environment where you can spend the day enjoying city life and then escape to Primrose hill, the Thames, or a walk by the canals.
