Travel to one of the most vibrant cities in the world with a group of your UW-Madison peers!  The UW in London program is located in the heart of London, snug in the Royal Borough (neighborhood) of Kensington and Chelsea. UW works closely with the Foundation for International Education (FIE) to help you take advantage of program events and activities to experience British culture and life in the UK.

This engaging spring semester program allows you the unique opportunity of selecting at least one course specifically designed and taught by a UW-Madison professor who will spend the semester in London.  You'll also have the freedom to choose from a variety of additional courses taught by well-respected local instructors. Classes are specially designed for American students new to London. Co-curricular excursions with your classmates offer a unique way to contextualize all that you learn about local art, history, theatre and more.

One unique and exciting aspect of the UW in London program is the internship component, which provides a unique opportunity for you to engage in an international work placement while earning academic credit.  At your internship, you will have the opportunity to build professional skills, increase industry knowledge and experience working in a different culture in a major global city.

Business Students:  this program is co-sponsored by the Wisconsin School of Business (WSB) and it satisfies the study abroad requirement of the WSB International Business major.
