Location and Culture:
Home to some of the world’s most vibrant theatre and music, outstanding museums, and ambitious architecture, Newsweek has dubbed London “the coolest city on the planet.” London is the political, economic, and media hub of the British Isles, with an influence that reaches well beyond its borders. Many interesting cities and tourist attractions are easy to access, and a designated long weekend allows students to travel further afield in the UK and the rest of Europe. Average temperatures in March range from 39°F to 52°F, and from 53°F to 70°F in June.
Past students at the London, England Project Center have:
- Designed new exhibits and educational resources for major London museums
- Explored how to reduce dwell times on the London Underground
- Helped local councils promote recycling and reduce energy consumption
- Assessed the value of green space in urban areas
