Please Note: International students who are not native speakers of English speakers are required to provide English proficiency exam scores not more than 2 years old as part of the UK visa application process. The two most common tests that international students in the US are able to take are the Pearson and IELTS exams (TOEFL scores are not accepted by the UK Border Agency). These typically cost around $150-200 and require the student to schedule a test in advance at a designated testing area. More information on these tests (and all other accepted English language tests) can be found here. The student must secure at least a B2 level on any qualifying exam. You will receive visa instructions in late 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 one of the accepted tests 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.

I would tell future students to go into it with an open mind. Information I was given about London prior to the program, was not always accurate. Things people said that would be negative I never experienced.
Summer 2015 Participant
The field studies during the duration of the course were the best way to see the city and learn about the country we were studying in. I don't think I would have visited all the places we went on these field trips and I appreciate our professors efforts to show us a wide range of locations to really get to know London.
Barbara Madison Blankenship, Summer 2012 Participant
My internship at the Chelsea Academy school allowed me to meet students and faculty while gaining experience in a psychological behavioral environment. This is by far the most rewarding part of my summer and it is an expereince I will recall and look back on often while continuing to advance in my career.
