For Undergraduates

London Undergraduate Program

The London Undergraduate Program (LUP) offers Notre Dame undergraduates the chance to broaden their intellectual and cultural horizons by living and studying abroad in London for one semester.  Around 260 students participate in the LUP each year.

The 16-week program offers a variety of classes in history, literature, music, art history, politics, economics, finance, accountancy, philosophy, theology, and psychology, and around 35 internships in the fields of business, the arts and entertainment, public relations, politics, and more.

There are also a number of special opportunities within the LUP.  The core course Inside London provides students with an immersive experience into the political and cultural history of the city.  Through other courses, students also are able to perform on the stage of Shakespeare's Globe under the leadership of specialist practioners, and work with young people with disabilities at Drumbeat school.  Finally, students can apply to become a King's Scholar and take 2 classes at local university, King's College London.  This is a unique opportunity offered to a small cohort.

The majority of classes are taught in Fischer Hall by faculty from a wide range of British universities and colleges and visiting faculty from the home campus.  Outside of academia, many of our faculty members hold positions such as writers, musicians, and critics.

Students take part in a variety of academic and extracurricular activities, including field trips, plays and theatre tours, museum visits, and weekend outings across the U.K.
