Rhodes Summer School in London

Location and Dates:
We will live in the residence halls at the University of London, Goldsmiths in New Cross, London for the duration of the program: 1 July – 30 July, 2022.

Description: Participate in this intensive four-week study abroad opportunity to learn about British literature, history, art (and more!) from prehistoric through contemporary times.  The immersion program includes highlighted excursions to famous sites and landmarks in the U.K. (TBA).  The courses are taught by American and British professors.

Students will stay in residence halls at the University of London, which will be centrally located for offsite activities.Most meals are provided for us each day; students are also given grocery store vouchers to spend on food for yourself on the days where cooked meals are not provided. This way students have flexibility, not only with their eating and nutrition choices, but also when wanting to sight-see or spend time off campus.

Students are also given a monthly Oyster card (valid for Tube, bus, some boats within London) so that they can travel around London at their convenience and attend group outings/excursions when they are held off campus.

The program begins on the evening of Friday, July 1 (with orientation and dinner) and ends on the morning of Saturday, July 31, when we must be out of the residence halls.
