SU in London: Regent's University
Started as a Roman city, London has been the capital of England for hundreds of years. Home to Queen Elizabeth II, 14 professional football teams and many different ethnicities, London has a culture unlike many other European countries. Being an international city, London gives students the opportunity to learn about many different coultures in one study abroad experience. The numerous parks within London help provide a small city feel to the second-largest metropolitan area in Europe.
Susquehanna University's partnership with Regent's University London allows students the opportunity to enroll in a full semester of academic coursework while having the experience of living and attending classes in London. Regent's is an American-style college that hosts students from 100 different countries. Students will take classes on the residential campus located in Regent's Park in Central London.
Courses offered are widely varied and many satisfy SU requirements, making Regent's a popular option among students of all majors.
Susquehanna students will live alongside other international students in an on-campus residence hall, and are on a full meal plan that can be used in the three eateries on campus.
Campus Culture and Orientation
Students participate in an orientation weekend upon arrival at Regent's to get them familiar with the other students as well as the area around Regent's Park. In the past orientation has included activities such as a Jack the Ripper tour, boat ride on the Thames, or trips to local bars, clubs, and markets. On campus, students are able to join university clubs and sports teams.
Regent's organizes three weekend trips throughout the U.K. and Europe for all students as well as four day trips around England. Past trips have included visits to Edinburgh, Paris, Stratford-upon-Avon, and Wales. Some classes offer trips throughout London to explore the culture, history, or aesthetic aspects of the city.
In addition to these excursions, many students at Regent's College choose to independently explore other parts of the European continent outside the scheduled learning activities of the program.
