If you have questions about the academics or courses available on this program, locate the Program Advisor to email them your questions directly.

Studying abroad can be a more meaningful and invigorating learning experience than at home—both inside and outside of the classroom. You may be more curious and alert than you usually are so use this heightened energy to enhance your studies as well as your cultural and geographical explorations. You may also encounter different teaching styles and course processes; be prepared to adapt and to learn.


USAC's partnership with London Metropolitan University provides you with a wide array of academic options. You may choose from courses offered in the following disciplines: Human Sciences; Computing and Digital Media; Business, Law, Translation, and Languages; Social Professions; Social Sciences; Literary and Performing Arts; and Art and Design. Courses are subject to change and approval of prerequisites which are determined by London Metropolitan University.

Each student will take four courses per semester, worth 15 U.K. credits each. USAC equates 15 U.K. credits as the equivalent of three U.S. semester credits.
