Arcadia in London Banner
Let the city be your classroom

Arcadia in London is an affordable and innovative way to study and get to know one of the most cosmopolitan and exciting cities in 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.

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. If you'd like to add an internship option to your study, check out the London Internship Program.

  • Gain an insider’s view of London from our London Center staff and faculty as they help you find your feet with your studies, new friends, and London life. Their infectious enthusiasm will inspire even the most hesitant to delve into this welcoming, fun, and supportive place to achieve your academic and personal goals.
  • Arcadia excursions, events, and activities will help you get to know many angles of this multi-cultural and historic city and take you beyond the city to explore the rest of the UK and beyond. The program also includes a reading week break mid-semester, allowing the opportunity for extended independent travel.
  • Join clubs with your UCL Student Union membership, which is included. From casual sports, comedy clubs, arts and crafts, political and social groups, and everything else in between, there are plenty of clubs to engage with at the Union.
  • If you wish to supplement your Cornerstone Course with a course(s) at a partner institution, your choices include: City, University of LondonGoldsmiths, University of LondonQueen Mary, University of London; and University of Westminster
  • You will be attending classes with British students at all partner institutions. Tuition fees will vary depending on where you enroll in classes.
