London Connect Courses

Arcadia offers students the opportunity to combine Arcadia London Center courses with courses at one of six London area universities through London Connect for a total of 14-18 credits per semester. You must enroll in at least one Arcadia London Center elective course worth 4 credits. Tuition fees will vary depending on where you enroll in classes. You can enroll in more than 8 credits at a London area university for an additional fee.

  • Make sure your credits transfer back for credit with your home school – this is your responsibility.
  • Please be flexible about courses – we can’t guarantee placement in specific courses. Be sure to include alternate courses along with your first choices.
  • Please review your course choices with your academic or study abroad advisor, and submit the online course registration form to The College of Global Studies at Arcadia University.
