Courses

You didn't think you'd be stuck inside in the summer did you? Your personal course objectives are set up and agreed upon between you and your WPI advisor during the 1/6 credit HU2900 prep (D term) before we leave the States. When we arrive in London, you pursue those objectives by seeing London; hit the museums, go to concerts, see the sights, and check in with your advisor in regular status meetings. You can also work in a group if you prefer--sign up with a friend!


WPI typically offers a 30% tuition discount on summer courses! That comes to about $7,700 total for the 3 courses.

Get around

See London your way! Take the tube around the city or walk it! Fly to London for our trip, and then fly around Europe instead of going home! We've estimated your costs for food, travel, tourism, and commuting, but you can make your own arangements!

We estimate about $3,250 for your travel, tourism, food, and other costs.
