API students participate excursions designed to help familiarize them with the culture and surrounding areas of their host city and country. The following is a listing of potential excursions for API London programs. API may need to modify the excursions offered in a given term due to travel restrictions or health and safety concerns.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • A Historic Royal Palace

    Explore one of the many historic royal palaces in and around London! These palaces show the extravagant wealth of the previous and current royal families of England and hold collections of art, furniture and jewels that are truly priceless. The buildings themselves are also marvels of architecture and show how each palace was adapted and redesigned for each monarch.

What You’ll Study

Students will enroll in courses alongside local British students, as well as international students from around the world. Students can earn up to 15 credits, and can select from a broad array of classes offered across multiple academic disciplines, including (but not limited to!) Art, Business, Communication, Design & Fashion, Engineering, Health Sciences, Humanities, Journalism, Natural Sciences, and much more!
