Program Description:

CCSA London

UK Consortia: CCSA - London Winter

London, England

Program Overview

Samuel Johnson once famously said, "The man who is tired of London... is tired of life." Find out why even in winter this is true. A center of theatre and business, of history and the avant- garde, London offers the perfect setting to experience everything from art and literature to science and commerce. If in the words of another famous Londoner "All the world's a stage" then London is certainly the perfect theater to study the world. Included in the program price are tickets to at least one theatrical production and two day-trips to such locations as Bath & Stonehenge, Cambridge, Canterbury & Dover, Oxford and Stratford & Warwick. 

By combining this intensive study abroad experience with course-specific directed study activities preceding and/or following the travel portion of the program, students may earn three semester hours of college credit.


This program is open to undergraduate and graduate students from all academic disciplines.

Academic Credit

  • Dr. Beth Barnes and Dr. Alyssa Eckman, from the College of Communication & Information, are offering the UK course, "Advertising & Public Relations in London": Outside of New York City, London is the advertising and marketing capital of the world, and certainly the leader in European advertising. This course will examine how advertising and public relations practice in London and Great Britain differ from the United States through in-country study of print, broadcast, cinema and out-of-home advertising, visits to advertising and public relations agencies and popular culture museums. If you've ever seen a TV show featuring European ads, you know they're edgier than what we see in the U.S. This course will help you understand why and how that happens. Prerequisite: completion of an introductory course in advertising OR public relations OR strategic communications OR marketing. UK students participating in this course will be enrolled in ISC 497.
  • Dr. Melody Ryan, from the UK College of Pharmacy, is offering a course titled "Healthcare Yesterday, Today & Tomorrow: A Comparison of American & United Kingdom Health Systems". This course will allow the student to explore the shared past of American and United Kingdom healthcare systems through visits to historical sites and collections including the Royal College of Physicians, the Florence Nightingale Museum and the Royal Pharmaceutical Society. Discussions about current healthcare systems will be amplified by visits to practice sites, such as hospitals, pharmacies and general practices. Students will have the opportunity to develop their thoughts about the future of American healthcare through discussion and debate. This course may also be of interest to medicine, nursing, dentistry, pharmacy, public health, health science and pre-professional upper level students.

    Prerequisite: Students should have explored the healthcare system in the USA, through course work or other experiences.
  • UK students may be eligible to 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.  Any CCSA courses listed below already have UK equivalencies established and can be written in on the Academic Approval Form. 
  • 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. 

Scholarships & Financial Aid

Students are strongly encouraged to explore all funding opportunities for programs abroad. There are numerous opportunities available based on the area of study, program type, length, and country of destination. 
  • Many financial aid packages (scholarships, loans and grants) used for on-campus study can be applied to education abroad programs. Students who qualify for financial aid should consult with their UK Financial Aid counselor as soon as possible to apply for funding.
  • The Education Abroad at UK Scholarship - The campus-wide Selection Committee awards need-based scholarships to UK students in the amounts of $750, $1,000 and $1,500. The deadline for application materials is March 1 for Summer/Fall programs and October 1 for Spring/Winter programs.
