This cost covers round-trip transportation from Bloomington to London, housing for six weeks, internship placement, two group excursions outside London, three evenings and a London theater and health insurance.
Students should budget an additional $1,000 for the purchase of groceries, personal expenses and entertainment while in London, and an additional $1,200 for visa, phone and transportation costs.
If you wish to find an internship in London on your own and without the help of Anglo Educations Services, your cost will be reduced by $500 if you can provide a letter of commitment to Katie Beck, associate director of student services, experiential education, by Jan. 15, 2019. Note: The placement must be approved. Email her in advance with questions about the appropriateness of a particular placement.
The cost can be further reduced through scholarships and grants, such as the Hutton Honors College’s International Experiences Grant.
