Study abroad in London, England

Welcome to SU London!

What else could you desire from a city? London, a city of 320 languages, 300 museums and galleries, 60 theaters, 5,000 restaurants, and 7,000 pubs, is your new home. And despite all of the choices available to you, the city remains accessible. Once you're here, you'll realize that you are part of a huge assortment of smaller towns and village neighborhoods, each boasting its own distinct character and devoted denizens. The SU London center is in Bloomsbury, the heart of academic London, and the staff and faculty of Faraday House are ready to help you make your time abroad the experience of a lifetime.
