For over 50 years, the Lawrence University London Centre has offered Lawrentians a unique opportunity to study abroad. Acting as an extension of the Appleton campus, the London Centre program allows you to earn credit towards your degree while experiencing life in one of the world's most historically rich and culturally vibrant capitals.


The London Centre is open to any major, and its experiential learning model means you spend almost as much time outside of the classroom as inside with scheduled walking tours, field trips to the theatre and museums, excursions outside of London, and more! Beyond the coursework, you will have the opportunity to apply for an internship or sign up for music lessons, if you choose. You'll live in an apartment with other Lawrence students but have the independence to explore at your own pace and really make this experience your own. What are you waiting for?

Applications due February 20, 2024!
