API students participate in several excursions per session designed to help familiarize them with areas of their host city, country, and surrounding region. The following is a listing of all excursions for API London programs. All excursions are subject to change.

  • Stonehenge & Bath

    This is your chance to see one of the wonders of the world, Stonehenge. Everyone has heard of Stonehenge, but mystery still shrouds it from how the stones made it to their final resting place to the exact purpose of the site. After exploring one of the best prehistoric sites in Europe, students will be off to Bath, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Here students can travel through time, exploring what Bath may have been like during the Roman Occupation through the Roman Baths or explore the Georgian Architecture and Fashion of Jane Austen’s time.

  • Wales Weekend

    Wales has more castles per square mile than anywhere else in the world. Every hill, church or standing stone has a story all of its own. Cardiff, the capital city is the location of many Dr. Who scenes, and the Welsh countryside is home to picturesque abbeys and castles painted by many artists through the centuries.

  • Harry Potter Studio Tour

    The Harry Potter Studio Tour London provides a unique showcase of the extraordinary British artistry, technology, and talent that went into making one of the most successful film series of all time. Students have the chance to go behind-the-scenes and see many things the camera never showed. From breathtakingly detailed sets to stunning costumes to props and animatronics. Students explore a huge array of beautiful sets, costumes, and props. Some closely guarded secrets, including facts about the special effects and animatronics, will be revealed.

  • Oxford & Blenheim Palace

    A stunning, but perhaps overlooked attraction when visiting Oxford, is Blenheim Palace. Now a UNESCO World Heritage Site, it is most notable for being the birthplace and ancestral home of Sir Winston Churchill. After exploring the beautiful Baroque architecture, students will have time to explore the City of Dreaming Spires, Oxford. Oxford dates back to the 12th century as a place for scholars and today it continues to be the home of the 38 colleges that make up the University of Oxford.

  • Hampton Court Palace

    Hampton Court Palace originally began as the project of Cardinal Wolsey, but as he fell out of favour with King Henry VIII, he gifted it to the King and it soon became one of Henry’s favourite palaces. Subsequent monarchs also enjoyed the palace and made significant renovations and additions to try and rival the Palace of Versailles. Today you can see the different architectural styles, the historic tennis courts, wander the maze, and enjoy the 60 acres of well-manicured gardens.

London is a large city, so all students can expect to use public transportation (i.e. tube or bus) to move around the city on a daily basis, both getting to school and for social/cultural activities. It is a part of life in London. Generally, it will take students 20-45 minutes to get to school from their housing via public transportation or walking. All housing will be located in Zones 1 and 2 on the tube map.

Students will be housed in student apartments. Most apartments have several single rooms with a shared living room and kitchen. Some have en suite bathrooms in each bedroom while others have shared bathrooms. The kitchens are equipped with ovens, stoves, microwaves, and refrigerators. Wireless Internet is provided in all flats. A weekly cleaning service is provided to the communal kitchen/living areas in all API London accommodations.

We may place students in a few different student apartment buildings depending on where they are taking classes. We will prioritize having students share an apartment with other API students, but it is possible that API students would share an apartment with non-API students.

Note: Housing between the fall and spring semesters is not included. Meals are not included in these housing options.
