Program Description:

The London program through CAPA The Global Education network will take place at their strategically designed study center, located in the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea. The program has been intentionally designed to engage Union College students through coursework, internships and cultural activities. These integrated elements will give Union College students an opportunity to understand and experience a dynamic and international global city.

Course of Study

The London program offers an array of academic courses and experiential learning opportunities, suiting a wide range of majors. Students will choose three of the five courses on offer: International Marketing; European Government and Politics; Child Development in a British Context; Analyzing and Exploring the Global City: Modernity, Empire and Globalization; and The Global Internship Program. Please note that Child Development in a British Context will count as a Psychology Department elective.

An internship in London is a unique opportunity for Union College students to gain a competitive edge by getting hands on professional experience in one of the world’s leading cities. The Global Internship Program course combines classroom learning with workplace practice and social and cultural investigation. The London Program will allow Union College students to live like a Londoner while being inspired by a program that immerses them both academically and socially.

The cross-curricular Global Cities philosophy has been developed to offer Union students a unique and varied insight into the diverse culture and society that is London. For example, the MY Education calendar compiled by local CAPA education abroad advisers offers a rich menu of volunteer opportunities, lectures, visits and tours to help students gain a deeper understanding of the heritage, politics, and society in London.


All students are required to have a 2.7 cumulative GPA in order to apply to the program and must maintain this GPA until the program departure date.


Students have the option of choosing to live in student apartment accommodations with shared bedrooms or student housing in a single homestay with shared bathroom.
