LDA's rich curriculum is complemented by an excellent theatre and cultural activities program. Once a week for 14 weeks LDA participants attend professional theatre productions as well as various cultural visits; and during the term they also participate in two all day excursions outside of London. While the program varies from semester to semester, most recently students had seen productions at the National Theatre, Tricycle Theatre, the Royal Festival Hall, the Rose Theatre in Kingston, just to name a few, went on a guided tour of the British Library and Middle Temple, and enjoyed day trips to Stratford-upon-Avon. In addition, LDA's home at Heythrop College, offers participants wonderful opportunities the cultural treasures Kensington has to offer - Kensington Palace, the Royal Albert Hall, the Victoria & Albert Museum, the Natural History Musem are only minutes away from our Centre!

Financial Aid

Fordham students may apply their financial aid to the LDA program. Depending on the home institution's policy, non-Fordham students can, in most cases, apply their ongoing financial aid award towards study abroad via a consortium agreement. The Financial Aid Office at your home institution can provide information about transferring institutional scholarships as well as grants, loans and procedures for applying.

LDA Scholarship

Fordham University offers a limited number of Scholarships for LDA participants. The LDA Scholarship Application Form is available for download. Please contact the LDA Coordinator at for further information.

Estimated Living Costs in London

From past semesters’ experience, the London Centre recommends that participants budget approximately $5,500 - $6,000 per semester. Our budget estimates are as follows: $2,500 for food, $1,750 for travel (flight and local travel), $200 for books and $1,500 for other personal expenses.

Fordham University reserves rooms and flats for students in various centrally-located neighbourhoods with providers who specialise in student housing. LDA students are housed particularly close to campus due to their full timetable of classes at the Centre. Each flat is equipped with a kitchen, living/dining room, and two or three shared bedrooms. Students may be housed with Richmond University in Kensington; those students have access to a meal plan. The choice of accommodation is made by the director of LDA depending upon availability.
