Can’t wait for college to begin? Get a head start on your University of Oregon academic career while studying in one of the most diverse cities in the world on Global Education Oregon’s study abroad program: Advancing Your Academic Success: Pre-Freshman Studies in London.
Your experience starts in Eugene during IntroDUCKtion, where you’ll meet your fellow future Ducks, academic advisors, and have priority registration for your Fall Term courses at University of Oregon.
Upon arrival in London, you’ll follow in the footsteps of the Oregon Duck as the city becomes your classroom. Your classes will meet at the GEO in London Centre, a beautiful early Georgian town house in the heart of Bloomsbury in central London. Number 6 Great James Street was completed in 1721, and the wood paneling and ornate mahogany columns are original.
In addition, you’ll join your professors on excursions to historical sites and theatre performances to see your course materials come to life. Guest speakers from all walks of life will share their knowledge and passion for London. All program-related textbooks, excursions, performances, and local transportation are included in the program fee.
