Students must have met all prerequisites or requirements for London classes in which they enroll. Students must maintain these standards prior to departure and throughout the term in London, and they must abide by participation and housing rules.

Program Fee: $3,750

Planning Ahead: Because of the nature of the program and the small number of participants in a semester, class offerings are limited; therefore, it is important that students interested in the program plan their curriculum in advance to take the best advantage of London course offerings. Interested students should consult with their advisors and with the Global Engagement Office early in their Samford careers.

Available Courses: Students may choose from other offerings to enroll in a minimum of 12 or a maximum of 18 credits. If students participate in an internship, it is recommended that they not register for more than 14 credits. In keeping with U.K. immigration requirements, students must take a minimum of 12 hours of courses taught in London.
