Maymester Program
Humanities in London
London, United Kingdom
Experience everything London has to offer during a four-week Maymester program with HPU Humanities faculty! You'll choose a class from one of three areas: History, Music, or English Literature. Each class has been designed to engage students with unique facets of British culture and the city of London itself. There will be excursions within London to enhance learning, as well as visits to the cultural centers of Oxford, Bath, and Edinburgh!

Students will attend classes at Richbell House, operated by Anglo Educational Services (AES). The location is ideally situated in Bloomsbury, the academic and cultural heart of London. The property is a short walk from the British Museum and the University of London. The nearest underground stations are Holborn, Russell Square, and Farringdon, making it easily accessible to all of central London as well as the students' residences.
