Let the city be your classroom

Arcadia in London is an affordable and innovative way to study in, and get to know, one of the most cosmopolitan and exciting cities in the world.  You can choose to study within a familiar American university system by taking all your courses at the Arcadia London Center, in the heart of the city, where we offer a range of courses looking at the history, literature, sociology and culture of this fascinating place. Or, you can mix our courses with electives chosen from one of our London partner institutions - giving you exposure to the British academic system and the opportunity to study alongside students from all over the world. 

Arcadia faculty use London itself as the classroom, taking you into the streets to bring your studies to life in the communities and places you are learning about. Visits to galleries, theaters, historical sites, local communities and markets give you insights and experiences that augment your classroom learning, giving you genuine insights into this exciting city, its diverse population and traditions and its incredibly rich culture. If you'd like to add an internship option to your study, check out the London Internship Program.

It’s incredible to be somewhere where so many significant things have happened with Science, Literature, Art, etc. I loved being able to discover so many things in London ”
