London is one of the world's most fascinating and culturally active cities. It is a booming center of business, education, culture, law, fashion, and entertainment. From Piccadilly Circus to Kensington Gardens, there are many things to see and do in London, all of which are reachable by the tube (subway). Located in the South Kensington district, CAPA International Education is close to many sites such as the Victoria and Albert Museum, Hyde Park, Natural History Museum, Science Museum, and Covent Garden.
CAPA offers two summer sessions. The first is from mid-May to early July and the second session is from early July to mid-August. Students will have two options for the CAPA London, England Summer Academic/Internship Program. Certain courses may carry an additional course fee for the purchase of theatre tickets, supplies, etc., and are marked accordingly.
1) One three-credit internship/LTI class and one three-credit academic course, or
2) Two three-credit academic courses.
Students take the LTI (Learning Through Internships) class which includes the internship placement for a total of three credits. The CAPA Internship Coordinator will locate an internship in the student's general area of interest and provide support services on a continual basis throughout the session. Placements are available in a wide range of sites, including small businesses, corporations, art facilities, government agencies, brokerage houses, publishing companies, museums, radio stations, and many others. Specific placements depend on the background, training, interests, and ability of students, as well as their success in securing the internship in the interview process held during the first few days in London.
Courses are generally offered each summer in the following areas.
For a full course syllabus, please go to the CAPA website.
Students taking an internship for three-credits follow the same SUNY application process, as well as the CAPA Admissions and Internship applications. Internship students will also enroll in the LTI (Learning Through Internships) course.
