Program Information

Students will study at UNC's Winston House on historic Bedford Square in one of the most exciting cities in the world. Located in the heart of London, Winston House serves as a hub for UNC study abroad programs and research initiatives across Europe. Participants in the Honors Semester in London live among Londoners in a central London neighborhood, attend seminars within the shadow of the British Museum, conduct research at the British Library, learn from professors who make London their home, and take advantage daily of the artistic, musical, theatrical, and cultural riches of this unique metropolis.

Students will also have the opportunity to participate in an internship, which will provide valuable educational experiences in a cross-cultural context. Internship placements combined with academic coursework will allow students to appreciate connections between theory and practice, and to gain exposure to potential career choices. A suitable placement for each student will be based on the student's goals, interests, previous coursework, and skills. Positions are available in art and design, education, film, finance, government, journalism, law, marketing, museums, radio and social services.
