2017 Fall Term in London

London is calling.  Spend Fall Trimester in the heart of Britain.

The Fall of 2017, Augustana students will travel to Great Britain for a trimester experience in one of the most dynamic cities in the world.  London will be the backdrop for Augustana courses, group excursions and exploration.  This program will include several forays to different neighborhoods within the British capital and includes longer excursions to Stonehenge, Bath and a 5 day trip to Paris. 

Calendar: August 21-October 28.   Predeparture ISS Seminar meetings are held on campus Spring of 2017.

Contacts: Dr. Peter Kivisto (Sociology),  Dr. Catherine Goebel (Art History)

Eligibility: This program is open to all Augustana students in good academic standing (2.00 GPA or higher).  The program has a firm cap of 35 students.  Should more apply a selection process will be used to determine the roster and to create a short list of alternates.

Anticipated Program Cap:  30-34 students.

Recommended For:  This program is open to any major.  Students with interest in Sociology, English, Theatre, Art History, History, Economics, Environmental Policy and International Business may find this program to be of particular interest. 

Academics: The London Fall Term includes a mandatory 1-credit seminar and a choice of four courses in a variety of academic fields. All students must take no fewer than 3 three-credit courses and the 1-credit ISS Seminar.  All participants will earn a Learning Community through this program.  Course selections for the 2017 Fall program include:

Students should plan their academic coursework for the year to avoid course overloads.  If students choose to pursue a study abroad experience that takes them into a credit overload, those will lead to additional overload fees owed to the college and billed during the student's final term of that academic year.

Program Fee:  $17,900.  This fee is based on a 30 student group.  The program fee will be dependent upon the final group size.

Program Fee v. Fall 2017 on campus:  Estimated costs for Tuition, Room & Board on campus for Fall of 2017 are $17,000.  With an estimated food and airfare budget of $2,000-$2,500, the London Term would have a cost approximately $2,900-$3,400 over the cost of Fall Term on campus.  Students using Augie Choice would see a cost difference of $900-$1,400 for the 10 week London program. 

Fee includes: Tuition, Accomodations in London & Paris, local transportation (bus & metro pass), group excursions and international health insurance.

Fee does not include: Airfare, individual excursions or side trips, meals, discretionary spending.

Financial Aid:  Students participating in this program are eligible for the same grants, scholarships and loan eligibility while abroad as they would be for this trimester on campus.  When billed for the program each student will receive a detailed billing statement which reduces the cost of the program in accordance with the student's anticipated financial assistance.
