When I explored London for the first time, I instantly knew that it was the place for me. I matured so much and learned so much about myself that it made all the effort worthwhile. I can safely say that it was the best semester of my college life.

CAPA London Resident Director

Greetings from London! I’m a lifelong resident of this complex global city and feel privileged every day to witness our students discover, adapt, and engage in the new community they have come to live in. Congratulations for choosing to study in a city with postcodes so diverse, that each have their own colour and personality but soon will become so familiar you’ll be living as a local in no time! We’ll help you explore a different culture and way of life from your own, with mindfulness and through quiet reflection; we’ll provide you with the framework and tools so that you participate fully in your chosen academic field. Each day you will discover, be challenged and your awareness will develop; we look forward to sharing this with you. See you soon!
