The Program
  • City University, located near London’s financial district, excels in professional subjects, from Journalism and Engineering to Finance and Management
  • City University combines the advantages of a long established traditional institution with a modern approach to teaching and learning and a large international student population
  • Take specialized excursion- based classes such as Performing Arts London and Historic London
Your Host City: London
London is quite simply one of the most exciting cities on earth. It is the center of everything British—culture, politics, finance, history, and royalty—but also a world capital with a huge multinational population. “When a man [or woman] is tired of London, he is tired of life,” said 18th-century author Samuel Johnson, and the quote is no less true today. Cultural highlights range from St Paul’s Cathedral and the Tower of London to the new British Library and Tate Modern art gallery.  Once you’ve mastered the London Underground (also known as The Tube) and bus system, you’ll be ready to check out Big Ben, Buckingham Palace, Harrods, Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre, and everything else London has to offer in terms of shopping, nightlife, parks, and recreation.


Academics
In order to have an idea of what classes are available, you should visit the City University website.  

When looking for courses, be sure you are only looking at the offerings for undergraduate students.  Also, please be sure you choose courses that are offered during your semester of study.  If you will study for the fall term only, you need to choose courses that are listed as “f” in the term section. If you will study for the spring term, you will choose courses that are listed as “s” in the term section. If you are a single term student, you cannot take courses that are listed as “Y” or Year courses. However, there are some courses that are listed as “Ysf” which means that the year-long course has been broken into two parts - fall and spring - so that full year and single semester students can participate in some part of the course.

United Kingdom Universities are typically on a three-year system; thus, courses listed as “Level 1,” “Level 2,” and “Level 3” do not necessarily translate into first, second, and third year courses in the American system. Students in the past have recommended taking courses at Level 1 or Level 2.  Unlike the U.S. university system, universities in England offer upper-level courses at Levels 1 and 2. Courses at Level 3 tend to be rather advanced, much like our graduate courses, and students should pay particular attention to prerequisite requirements.

You should plan to take three to four classes per semester at City University, as courses are worth 4 credits each during the fall and spring semesters. Students are able to add an extension course in addition to their 3-4 City courses. These extensions courses are in a practical language or cultural studies course such as Historic London or Performing Arts in London.  The extension courses are worth 2 Rutgers credits.  You will need to be sure that you are registered as a full time student according to City University and Rutgers University. That means you will need to take at least 12 credits each semester. The credit translation system between City and Rutgers University is 1:1, meaning a 4-credit course at City will also be a 4-credit course on your Rutgers University transcript. It is not possible to take classes as not-for-credit or pass/fail.

Please note: City University charges extra for music and informatics courses.
