About the Program
Home to more than half of the UK’s top 100 listed companies, and considered one of the world's pre-eminent financial centers, London is the perfect city in which to study business. You’ll find coursework available in business, marketing, management and leadership, and economics at London South Bank University (LSBU), where you'll attend class alongside international and British students. And if you're interested in technology, you'll also find London fascinating. A growing number of tech companies are based in London, and the city was among the first to receive a geoTLD, in 2014.

You’ll enroll in a total of 4 courses at LSBU with the option to enroll in a London-focused course specifically designed for study abroad students.
Generally, courses are worth 4 credits in the U.S. semester system. Semester students may earn 16 credits (up to 240 contact hours).
The number of contact hours for each course varies and may be comprised of lectures, seminars, and tutorials. Due to differences in the British higher education system, there is no standard for the number of days a week a course may meet. Class meeting times vary across departments and subject areas.
Prior to departure you will select your preferred courses and enroll in them based on availability. LSBU course lists and schedules are not finalized until you’re in London. Final course registration takes place onsite. Please understand course availability is subject to change and courses are not guaranteed. It is in your best interest to get several course alternates approved by your home university prior to your departure date. This will give you flexibility during registration. Please consult with your academic advisor at your home university on credit pre-approval guidelines.
Please be aware that the university final exam period runs past the CEA program dates. Therefore, it is your responsibility to arrange an alternate due date or assessment, if necessary, with your instructor. We recommend speaking about this with your instructor before the end of the add/drop period onsite.
The host institution has offered the following courses in the past. Please note that course listings may not be finalized until the start of the term; we’ll post an updated list when the host institution finalizes its offerings.

Get out and explore! Excursions are offered for most semester, year, and summer programs*. Semester students are typically offered between two to three excursions and summer study students are typically offered between one to two excursions. You'll receive a calendar of excursions during orientation; here are a few day and overnight excursions we've offered in the past.
*In an effort to offer lower - cost internship options and support you in maximizing your professional development in a condensed timeframe, summer internship programs do not include excursions.
The official home of England’s royal family for 900 years, Windsor claims to be the largest and oldest occupied castle in the world. Tour the immense grounds, lavish staterooms, crowd-pleasing dollhouse, art gallery, and chapel. You’ll also visit the state apartments, from the intimate chambers of Charles II to the enormous Waterloo Chamber, built to commemorate the victory over Napoleon in 1815. All are exquisitely furnished with important works of art from the Royal Collection. After lunch, head across the bridge from the castle toward the college of Eton, the exclusive school that’s educated eighteen former British prime ministers and members of the royal family.
The beautiful city of Cambridge is known for its academia, architecture, and majestic buildings, like Kings College and Great St Mary’s Church. Enjoy a guided tour of the colleges and learn about the history of the University, as well some of the pranks Cambridge students get up to. Take a punt down the river Cam, or jump on a bicycle and see the city the way the locals do.
Oxford is famous world-over for its University which, with its thirty-eight colleges, is the home of British academia. Oxford was established in the 9th century and residence of both royalty and scholars for over 800 years; today, the city is a bustling cosmopolitan town. The excursion to Oxford begins with a walking tour of the delights of Carfax Tower, Bodelian Library, Ashmolean Museum, and Christ Church, founded by Cardinal Wolsey in 1524 and one of Oxford's largest colleges. More recently, Christ Church gained fame as a setting in several Harry Potter films. After the tour, you’ll have free time to explore other colleges, shop in the covered market, or try your hand at a traditional Oxford past-time: punting on the river which, similar to a Venetian gondolier, tests your strength and navigation skills.
Stonehenge and Bath
Travel by coach from London to Salisbury Plain, site of mysterious Stonehenge. The first stones are believed to have been placed as many as 5000 years ago, with the final phase completed around 1,500 BC. Wonder at how prehistoric man managed to transport these stones, weighing up to 5 tons each, across many miles before the invention of the wheel. Continue on to Bath, famous for its hot springs and 2000-year-old Roman Baths. The tour includes a visit to the Baths, where you can walk in the footsteps of the Romans and even taste the spring waters. Later, join a guided walking tour of this World Heritage city to admire its Regency architecture, including the Royal Crescent.
