The allure of London at New Year's draws people from around the world. A center of business and government, of history and culture, of the ancient and the avant-garde, London offers the perfect setting to experience everything from politics and society to science and commerce. England's history and culture come alive in a set of courses that offer science, history, and health care.
Includes several class-specific activities plus a day trip to such locations as Bath, Stonehenge & Salisbury, Canterbury & Dover, or Stratford & Warwick.
A GROUP FLIGHT OPTION is available at additional cost and includes:
- roundtrip air transportation from one of CCSA’s designated US departure cities

The following courses are offered on this CCSA program. For more information regarding academic content of individual courses, visit our website or email faculty at the address listed below each course description.
Before applying for any course, please make note of course prerequisites, which must be completed, or waived by the course instructor, prior to the program's departure date. By combining this intensive study abroad experience with directed study activities preceding and/or following the travel portion of the program, students may earn three semester hours of college credit.
Applicants are encouraged to apply well in advance of the application deadline, as priority is given to early applications.
UK Consortia: London Winter (CCSA)
- UK students will participate in courses on this program that are not taught by UK faculty members. Credit for these non-UK faculty taught courses will be awarded via CCSA school of record, Western Kentucky University, and transferred to UK. This transfer credit will not factor into students' UK GPA, nor will letter grades appear on the UK transcript. Students will be charged a $100 transcript fee in order to obtain this program transcript.
- PRIOR to departure, students taking non-UK faculty courses must complete an Academic Approval Form (AAF) for that coursework. The AAF indicates how the courses will be used, or course equivalency, once they are transferred to UK. Upon completion of the term abroad, the transcript should be sent to UK Education Abroad. Once received, the Education Abroad staff will coordinate transfer of credits to UK.
- All students will be enrolled in EAP 599: Study Abroad (1 credit hour) the term they are abroad.
Housing & Meals
- Students will be housed in hotels for the duration of the program.
- Breakfast will be provided daily. Participants will be responsible for lunch and dinner on their own.
