Program Description:

University College London (UCL) with Arcadia University
  University College London, (UCL) has a prestigious history—it was the first university to be founded after Oxford and Cambridge, the first in the UK to accept women, and the first to accept students regardless of race or religion. UCL is ranked among the top universities in the world, and its outstanding academic departments include English, economics, arts and humanities, engineering, neuroscience, and the social and historical sciences. You’ll study with highly regarded faculty and researchers; UCL’s rigorous coursework means that this study abroad program is best if you’re a junior or senior with a specific academic focus.  
Eligibility: Minimum 3.5 GPA (both overall and within the major) for majors in Economics, English, History, and Math. For other approved majors, there is a minimum 3.3 GPA (both overall and within the major). At least three courses of prior or current academic work relevant to the area to be studied at UCL.  Students apply directly to a department.

Program Dates:
Term Dates Application Deadline
Academic Year mid September - mid June February 1

Coursework and Credits:
Students must take 4 courses for a total of 15-16 WU units per semester. At least two of the courses must be within the admitting UCL department. English majors must take all 4 classes within the English department unless they apply to a 2nd department, in which case they would take 2 English classes and at least 1 in the secondary department. Students who wish to take classes in select departments must first be admitted by that department.

  London, England (UK)
Explore the dynamic multiculturalism of the fast-paced capital city, London, and the exciting, diverse and creative urban areas throughout the country that bring sports, arts, science and heritage to life. Drawing on its 2,000 year-old history, you’ll experience how England is reinventing itself for success in a globalized world – through a world-renowned higher education system and a torrent of creativity in finance, art, drama, music, technology, cultural and sporting innovations. UCL is a prestigious British institution of higher education. It is located in central London in the vicinity of other Colleges and libraries comprising the University of London. It is close to the British Museum too.

  Housing: Students are housed in three potential locations: UCL Halls of Residence, UCL Student Houses, or Arcadia housing. The majority of UCL residences are self-catered student houses with kitchens that are shared with other students. Residence halls include cafeteria meals in the contract rate. The intercollegiate halls are open to academic year students only. Arcadia cannot guarantee that single-semester students will be housed in UCL housing due to limited availability. If UCL housing is unavailable, students will be assigned Arcadia Student Housing.

Student Life: UCL Union provides many clubs and activities and hosts regular events and entertainments. For students wanting to socialize and relax, the Union provides a number of bars and cafés. Dive into a wide range of learning activities, such as lectures, student clubs, new hobbies, and excursions. You can choose your own direction or follow Arcadia's lead through the options they coordinate.

Arcadia Excursions: Travel to fascinating places of interest that enhance your cultural immersion and give a meaningful context to your academic courses. Here is a sampling:
Brighton Day Trip
Tower of London
Royal Ascot
Wales Adventure Weekend
and more...

On-Site Support: The Arcadia London Center supports all students in England from ensuring the best opportunities for excursions, events and activities, to health and safety assistance, academic guidance and good old fashioned local words of wisdom. UCL staff also provide significant support to students while abroad.

  Estimated Program Price: When you study abroad for a semester or a year for academic credit, you will be charged tuition by Washington University at a rate equivalent to tuition on campus for the corresponding time period. WU tuition covers only the educational and administrative costs of the study abroad program. WU tuition does not cover any study abroad program costs for room, board, transportation, personal expenses, passport or visa fees. Such costs are charged separately either by WU, the program sponsor, or a third party.
