IES Study London

London will be your classroom on this semester-length program. IES London semester offers a wide variety of courses in the humanities, social sciences, and arts through the Study London semester.

Choose from more than 40 IES Abroad-taught courses taught by expert local faculty at the IES Center. Not only are there hundreds of courses and disciplines available through our partner universities, but you also have the opportunity to make local British and international friends. Additional unique offerings include the IES Global Leadership Certificate for students interested in leadership studies and the IES creative workshop courses that focus on the production of a piece of creative work (writing, film, or fine art). Internships are available with most options. Students live in residence halls.

Students may also select the 'direct enrollment' option in a number of IES partner institutions in City - University of London, the Courtauld Institute of Art, Queen Mary - University of London, The School of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS), Slade School of Fine Art, or University College London. 

Note that the spring semester at most universities in the U.K. (and throughout Europe) is longer than the fall semester because of the "reading weeks" in the spring semester during which students are not in class but are studying for their final examinations. This additional length of the semester makes the spring semester program fees more expensive than the fall semester program fees (the tuition remains the same:  a semester's tuition - half of Knox's tuition fee for the year).

Theatre Studies

The goal of this IES 40+-year-old program is to help you explore contemporary London, both physically and culturally. Gain a deeper knowledge of British culture, including the central importance of history to the British. Explore the global impact of Britain on Western culture, including art, literature, and financial and political systems.

While adding study abroad to your résumé is impressive enough, adding an international internship is even more powerful, and can help distinguish your application for graduate school or a job opportunity in today’s competitive market. Before you depart, IES professionals talk to you about the type of placement you’d like and then work to match you with a placement in London. Service learning placements are also available if you would like to gain a deeper understanding of the city’s culture and society.

Get to know British culture and arts by visiting some of the city’s many museums and art galleries, including the British Museum, the National Gallery, and the Tate Galleries. Learn about the city’s history from your world-class professors and then visit London’s three UNESCO World Heritage sites: the Tower of London, Westminster Palace, and Kew’s Royal Botanic Gardens. Everywhere you turn in London is a new opportunity to learn more—strolling down the streets, passing by the many book stores, watching street performers, and listening to live music.

Credit: 4.5 per semester or 9 for full year.
Program advisor: Professor Ben Farrer and Dr. Brenda Tooley
