About the Location

The world-heritage city of Bath, England is located 90 minutes west of London. Bath has a population of 100,000 people, allowing for a manageable, cosmopolitan environment for students to interact with and discover the city. Nearly one in five residents in Bath are university students. The ASE study center and historic student housing properties are situated in the city center, within walking distance of the Roman Baths, the Abbey, Thermae Bath Spa, art galleries, museums, and numerous cafes, restaurants, and pubs. The city is surrounded by green, wooded hills and the River Avon runs through its heart, making the countryside easy to explore on foot, by bicycle, or boat.
 


Academics

Established in 1987, Advanced Studies in England (ASE) offers a challenging liberal arts curriculum and a reputation for academic excellence. The program has academic ties with University College, Oxford. ASE faculty are highly-qualified British academics from Oxford University and other top institutions.

ASE has strong course offerings in the humanities, including Art History, English, History, and Philosophy. Courses are taught in small, upper-level seminar groups of no more than 13 students that meet once a week for two hours. Individual tutorial-style classes are also available to students with a GPA of 3.4 or above. Additionally, students have the option of gaining hands-on experience while earning academic credit through the Internship Program.

Typically, students select one of the following combinations of courses, each carrying a workload of 16 total credits for the semester:

  • Option 1: Four seminar courses
  • Option 2: One tutorial plus three seminar courses
  • Option 3: The Education Program (includes school placement) plus two seminar courses
  • Option 4: An internship plus three seminar courses
All students also have unique opportunities to gain an insider's view of British history, landscape, and culture through a week-long residential stay at University College, Oxford, three days in Stratford-upon-Avon, and course-related study trips.

The academic program at ASE is complemented by a social and cultural program which offers students the opportunity to develop their own cultural awareness through a variety of experiences in and around Bath. Students are encouraged to participate in the Certificate of Cultural Enrichment program to further their integration, become involved in the community, and meet locals.
  • Grades count toward an Elon GPA.
  • Study abroad courses may not be taken on an audit or pass/fail basis, regardless of the host institution's policy.

Cost

Full cost information for this program will be available on the budget sheet soon.


Scholarships/Travel Grants

ASE offers a limited number of need-based and merit scholarships.

Need-based scholarships are available for Elon semester programs through the GEC.  For additional information on scholarships or other funding for study abroad, see the Funding for Study Abroad page.

If you qualify for a travel grant through any of the fellows or scholars programs, see the appropriate program director for more information on how to apply the grant to your study abroad program.  Visit the Deadlines and Events Calendar for travel grant deadlines.


Housing

ASE students live in historic town houses and apartments throughout the center of Bath. Each residence features an interesting characteristic such as Linley House's connection with one of Bath's most famous families or the view of the River Avon from the Nunes House.

Each residence is within walking distance of the Study Center and all offer WiFi, TV, laundry facilities, phone access, and communal areas. A weekly food allowance is included in the program fees to help cover meal costs as students shop and cook for themselves.

More information on ASE Bath Housing can be found here.  


Applications

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 semester in advance.

Initial approval is granted by Elon, and final acceptance is granted by the host institution.


Orientations

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, are the student's full responsibility.
