Please Note: International students who are not native speakers of English speakers are required to provide IELTS English proficiency exam scores not more than 2 years old as part of the UK visa application process. The exam typically costs around $150-200 and requires the student to schedule a test in advance at a designated testing area. The student must score at least a B2 level on the exam. You will receive visa instructions in early March but in order to begin the visa application process, you must have already received your test scores so it is important that you take the IELTS exam as soon as possible to ensure that you are able to obtain a visa in a timely manner. Please contact CAPA and the Office of Study Abroad right away if you fall into this category.

Summer 2013 Participant
I found it most rewarding to independently immerse myself in the culture of London. Before I went, and soon after my arrival, I made lists of all the things I wanted to do while I was there. Everything from going to the Tower of London to visiting several of London's parks. I found it most gratifying to grab my list on a Saturday morning, and explore the city.
Lindsey Elizabeth Mayfield, Summer 2013 Participant
Learning to work and study in a foreign country was a huge learning experience. It forced us to be very independent and professional, and to do it all in a foreign country in which we didn't know the culture or the people. I grew up a lot during those eight weeks, and became so much more comfortable with myself as a traveler, an employee and an adult.

RESEARCH the city and places you would want to go to before you travel. It's crazy how fast time flies while you're abroad, so being prepared ahead of time can help you out a ton.
