Whether you have visited or studied in the UK before or not, if you are interested in learning more about all aspects of British life, this special module (code XA1067) offered to Study Abroad and international exchange students will help you to get the most from your time abroad here.

Over 12 weeks, this module covers different topics, such as the monarchy, history, politics and government, the class system and the media. Lectures are complemented by excursions to places such as Oxford, Parliament, Stonehenge and Bath. There is an additional fee required (currently £80 in 2012/13) to cover some of the costs of the fieldtrips, including coach transport and all entry fees).

The module is worth 4 US credits (7.5 ECTS) and runs twice each year, in the autumn (fall) semester and then again in the spring semester.

Hundreds of students have enjoyed studying this module over the years, and we hope that you do too.

"I truly enjoyed the British Life and Culture class. I felt that I was able to settle into British society a lot easier because of the class. One of the greatest perks about taking the class is the trips around the United Kingdom. From Bath to Brighton, Stonehenge to Oxford I was able to travel to cities that I had only read about in books. I highly recommend this class for all Study Abroad students attending Kingston University."
