Arcadia in London Summer Courses

You will study one course per session; 4-credit course during Session I or a 3-credit course during Session II. You can choose one or both sessions and you can also combine a session in London with one in another Arcadia Summer Sessions location.

  • Please review your courses with your academic or study abroad advisor to ensure they will transfer back to your home school and that you are following your home school’s policies.
  • Please be flexible – we can’t guarantee specific courses. If your participation in the program depends on a particular course, be sure to make a note on your online course form.
