Fordham in London
Based at Heythrop College in Kensington in West London, Fordham offers study abroad programming in Theatre, Business, and the Liberal Arts. Academic internships and the ability to enroll in courses at University of Westminster, City University, and Queen Mary University of London are also available.
In Fall 2018, Fordham is scheduled to open a new 17,000 square feet London Centre in Clerkenwell to house our study abroad 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.
At the heart of Fordham's study abroad programs is the idea of the world as the classroom. Small and informal class settings let students explore subjects from a new perspective and in a unique setting. Offered to sophomores, juniors, or seniors, the program allows participants to engage in research while experiencing diverse academic settings.
