FIE offers scholarships to students studying in London.
FIE offers student accommodations based in converted Victorian-era townhomes in historic and charming Kensington, just a few minutes walk from the Foundation House Study Center. Students can live in double, triple, or quadruple rooms. Most of these rooms are connected to a larger apartment with other rooms. Apartments can range from three to 18 students. Each apartment has a shared kitchen, living space and bathrooms. Students will have access to laundry facilities though they may not be in their individual residence. Students will live in one of four residences and will be notified of their housing assignment approximately one month prior to arrival.
Learn more about FIE's residences.
Students must complete the online Elon University Study Abroad Application by the published deadline. See the Deadline and Events Calendar for the most up-to-date deadline information. Applications are generally accepted one year in advance.
A successful semester abroad is dependent upon adequate preparation. Students will participate in a series of mandatory orientations during the semester prior to studying abroad. These orientations will address issues of academic, cultural, logistical, financial, and personal preparation, as well as health and safety. Failure to participate in the required orientations will result in dismissal from the program. Any financial losses incurred by this dismissal, including program fees and international airfare, will be fully the responsibility of the student.
View the pre-departure orientation schedule for semester programs.
Once the orientation schedule is set, students will be notified by e-mail of the times, dates and locations.

You can be in touch with current Global Ambassadors via email, or contact past study abroad participants who have attended your program. They are looking forward to hearing from you!
