Reading London Study Abroad Program


Program Overview:


The Reading London study abroad program takes students to one of the world’s most dynamic cities to focus on the study and teaching of British literature. In the process of learning about literature, students also engage with the culture, history and character of England as conveyed by the city of London. Undergraduate and graduate students are welcome, although the program is designed with undergraduates in mind.



The Reading London program is a month-long program beginning in mid-May and finishing in mid-June. The current program is scheduled for 18 May - 15 June 2016.


Beyond the Program


Students have the opportunity to explore London and beyond on their own when not involved in program study and activities. There’s something for everyone in London: historical monuments, royal palaces, world-renowned museums, performances and concerts, street fairs, musicals and plays, sporting events, shopping, restaurants, parks. In the past, students have toured the Tower of London, caught a show in the West End, shopped at Portobello Market, traveled to the cities of Edinburgh (Scotland), Paris (France) and Dublin (Ireland), attended performances at St Martin-in-the-Fields and the English National Opera and eaten lunch in Brick Lane and Chinatown.
