Ideal for majors in Chemical Engineering, Computer Sciences, Electrical Engineering, and Mechanical Engineering, this program allows you to take STEM courses at London South Bank University (LSBU), where you’ll attend class alongside local and other international students. You can complement your STEM studies with courses in subjects like literature, journalism, art history, political science, and psychology to earn credit for elective or general education requirements. Given its English-speaking population and wealth of engineering resources, London is the perfect city for future engineers interested in studying abroad.
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.
London South Bank University features seven schools in a flexible, dynamic learning environment that supports students, develops academic programming, and engages with professional industries. Home to a diverse student body from more than 130 nations, LSBU’s centrally located campus offers a familiar on-campus experience for American students, all within an urban setting.
When you study abroad in London, you can choose CEA housing or arrange your own independent housing. CEA housing assignments are based on availability and confirmation date; we make every effort to match your housing requests, but we can’t guarantee housing preferences.
Life-Long Benefits I made friends I will have for the rest of my life. I learned a lot about not only France, but who I am and what I am capable of. Everybody should have the chance to study abroad because there are so many benefits.
