Spring Semester in London

I had a wonderful time in London last spring. The program was incredible and we got to go all over the UK on excursions with the tutors. While classes and group outings were great, the best part of my study abroad was definitely the internship. I was doing work that has helped to build my professional portfolio and will eventually be a huge asset when I begin applying for jobs!
Also, London was an amazing place to spend a few months and I am counting down the days until I can go back! This was the perfect program, very well located, with great tutors and an even better schedule of events.

How can this program be improved?
The housing could be more centrally located, but because cost of living in London is so expensive I can see why the program houses students outside of zone 4.
Yes, I recommend this program

London Liberal Arts

I loved my experience with GEO London. One of my favorite memories was seeing Hamlet at the Globe Theatre on Shakespeare's 400th birthday/day of his death.

Our entire class went to see the performance together. We stood in the Yard, which made us feel like were truly living in Shakespeare's time. The theatre's atmosphere was so energetic and lively. The production had just returned from a year long world tour. They had just returned to London and were preforming for the first time. The actors acted with such passion and enthusiasm, despite having preformed the play dozens of times.

After the performance, I left the theatre energized and glowing with happiness. I felt so lucky to be able to experience such a historical moment in the birthplace of Shakespeare. It is a memory I will never forget.

How can this program be improved?
Nothing, I enjoyed every moment!
