Visit world class museums including the Tate Modern, the British Museum and the National Gallery. Explore UNESCO World Heritage sites like Greenwich, the Tower of London, Westminster Palace and Kew Gardens. Immerse yourself in the bustling city life or explore the many peaceful green spaces in and around your new home. As Britain's cosmopolitan capital, London offers something for everyone, from the British Museum to the West End theaters, from the Tower of London to the House of Parliament and from ancient Roman ruins to the London Eye.
Classes take place in the London Centre, a spacious, historic Georgian building in the Bloomsbury area, a short walk from the British Museum. The centre offers a modest library, building-wide Internet access and a student lounge. London will serve as a classroom as much as the centre itself, with students visiting many of London’s most important broadcast companies as well as the exceptional museums, galleries, the House of Commons and theater and concert productions often accompanied by private talks with journalists or media coordinators.

Q: If you had one day to show someone around (London), where would you take him or her?
A: We would begin at London Bridge and walk along the Thames, stopping at Southwark Cathedral, where Shakespeare's brother is buried. After checking out the latest exhibition at Tate Modern, we would be groundlings in The Globe on a summer's day. Or in winter, we would stroll to the National Theatre to see a play before rounding off the day with supper overlooking the river.
