Fordham London Centre Programs

London Liberal Arts
Students in this “hybrid” program take one 4–credit Interdisciplinary Capstone Course (ICC)taught by a member of Fordham’s NY-based faculty, who helps you contextualize your experience in London. Students complement their Centre coursework by enrolling at Queen Mary University of London, City University, or University of Westminster.

Fordham students who will be second semester sophomores during the term in which they will be abroad, and who otherwise meet the requirements, may apply to study in the Sophomore Liberal Arts Program. Second semester sophomores are only eligible to take courses at the Fordham London Centre.

London Dramatic Academy
The London Dramatic Academy is an intense, thorough, enriching, empowering and thought-provoking conservatory experience. A theatrical-training challenge not for the faint-hearted. Taught by working professionals who know how to teach.

Gabelli School of Business in London
Few locations in Europe rival London as a place to study world business. The Gabelli School allows you to complete your Fordham coursework in this European commercial center. Students may visit the headquarters of Jaguar and Barclays Bank, hold an internship at a London office of a Big Four accounting firm, or undertake a global study of social entrepreneurship.

London Internship Program
Students in the London Internship program take 15-18 credits at the London Centre chosen from courses offered in the Liberal Arts or Gabelli School of Business programs. Interns work at their internship sites for approximately 2 days per week. Placements are available in Advertising, Marketing, Economics, Finance, Business, Film, Radio, Television, International Relations, Journalism, Politics, Pre-Law, Psychology, Health Science, Public Relations, and Theatre.

Fordham Exchange Programs

Fordham University has exchange partnerships with universities worldwide. Exchange programs have been developed with the independent student in mind. Courses are often taught in the language of the host country, and the majority of your classmates will be students from your host country. Studying on one of our exchange programs allows you the highest level of academic immersion through direct enrollment in a host institution.

Fordham Short-Term Programs

Fordham University offers a series of Short-Term programs during the Winter intercession, Spring, and Summer. These programs are taught by Fordham faculty and range in academic discipline. They are ideal for students who may not be able to afford to study abroad for an entire semester, and who are interested in learning outside of the classroom. These programs are interdisciplinary, engage in the site abroad, and consistent with Fordham’s mission as a research university in the Jesuit tradition. The short-term programs will include organized co-curricular excursions and group academic activities.

If you decide to apply for a non-Fordham program during the summer or winter inter-session you must complete our application as well as an application with the provider company or institution your program is administered by.
