An intimate, active campus community nestled in suburban London

St. Mary’s University’s reputation for academic excellence is reflected in its broad range of strong course offerings, which include athletic training, sports science, media and journalism, management, education, English and theatre/drama; its Catholic heritage adds particular strengths in theology and religious studies. You’ll learn in a personalized environment and a quiet setting, all while enjoying the energetic attitude of its student body. If you’re looking to strike a balance between urban and rural for your study abroad experience, this may be a good program option for you.

London is so interesting because there is so much history to it, especially when you compare it to the United States. The U.S. seems like a child in comparison. ”
