New Student Orientation - Old Westbury

Summer in England

STUDY ABROAD IN LONDON, ENGLAND

On the Summer at the University of Westminster program, you will enroll in a summer session at the University of Westminster. As a CISabroad student, you’ll spend three or six weeks at one on the most recognized universities in London. With multiple campuses throughout London, you can truly experience all the city has to offer. Westminster has two summer sessions, which you can combine to earn eight US credits. A combination of London-centric and international business courses provide a nice selection to learn about the way companies in England conduct business.

While CISabroad works closely with NYIT, you will need to apply and pay all program fees directly to CISabroad. While we can assist in the search for your ideal programs, it is important that you are aware of how the experience will fulfill credits back at NYIT. If you have any questions about this process, please contact tnicholson@cisabroad.com

A few highlights of this program include:
• Choose how long and how many credits – To really get to know London, stay for 6 weeks and earn 8 credits. But if you have a busy summer ahead, opt for just 3 weeks and earn 4 credits.
• Learn about international business where business gets done – Classes range from marketing to corporate social responsibility, so take advantage of the many choices available.
• Study the history and politics of London both in and out of the classroom – You can learn about the fascinating British culture through classes in historical and contemporary London culture, history, economics, literature, and politics, and then see all the sites you read about in your textbooks in person.
• Take advantage of a perfect location – Your classes will be in the center of London, so you can really experience this energetic city.
• Easy Access to mainland Europe- Cheap flights and trains provide easy access to the rest of the UK and Europe on the weekends for the; perfect summer abroad in London!
• No Friday Classes- Giving you plenty of afternoon and weekend time to explore London.
 

The University
Situated in the center of London, the University of Westminster enjoys an illustrious history going back over 165 years. It has one of the largest and longest-running US study abroad programs, and therefore a wealth of experience teaching and supporting US students. In fact, the University recently received the Times Higher Education Award for "Outstanding Support for International Students." The University hosts students from over 150 countries worldwide, and offers a wide variety of courses to fit your academic needs. The University has 4 campuses, 3 of which are superbly located in the center of London near the Houses of Parliament, Big Ben, the BBC, the British Museum, and the British Library. The fourth enjoys a quieter, scenic location just 20 minutes by tube from central London. The city's transport network provides easy access to the whole University from all parts of the city, and if you want to travel farther afield, international rail and air links make European excursions both easy and affordable! During the summer program at Westminster, you can take part in the exciting social program offered at the University. This is the perfect way for you to experience the city while meeting friends from all over the world! These range from activities in the city to day tours and weekend trips arranged to enhance you study abroad experience. You will experience high quality education with notable faculty, diverse courses, an international student body, and exciting urban campuses.
