Location

UK with big benThe City of London
London the capital of the United Kingdom and a leading global city.  It has the largest city GDP in Europe.  Central London is home to the headquarters of most of the UK's top 100 listed companies and home to more than 100 of Europe's 500 largest.  London's influence and strengths in the arts, education, entertainment, fashion, finance, healthcare, media, politics, professional services, sports, tourism, transport and culture in general contribute to its global position.

London has been called a 'world in one city' and that's not just empty rhetoric.  The brilliant feat carried off here is that while immigrants, the city's life blood, continue to flow in and contribute their energy and cultures to the capital's already spicy melting pot, London nevertheless feels quintessentially British.

Group at StonehengeStudent Spotlight: Lindsey Sweatland
"London was a very beautiful, old-fashioned type of place. There is so much detail and craftsmanship in the buildings and the number of museums and galleries they have available to the public for free was incredible. It was a very busy place but there was space for large parks which was very cool to see in the middle of so many buildings and people. Lastly, it was the most diverse place I have ever had the pleasure of visiting."  Read more about Lindsey's experience here.

Passports and Visas

A valid passport is essential to your international travel and study abroad. If you are planning to travel abroad, it's best to apply for a passport now as processing times may vary. Please see http://travel.state.gov/content/passports/english/passports.html for more information.
 
In order to obtain country-specific visa instructions and resources, refer to your host country’s embassy web page. One way to access this information is via the US Department of State’s webpage at: https://travel.state.gov/content/visas/en.html
 
UC International is happy to guide UC faculty, staff and students to possible resources about visas for study abroad. Although, applying for the necessary visa for travel is the responsibility of the individual UC traveler. Entry requirements change frequently, and we advise you to pay close attention to consular updates. It is your responsibility to know and address the requirements for your host study abroad destination.
 
Applying for a visa can be a complicated process. Some UC travelers choose a third party to assist with this process, for example Travisa or A Briggs (mention UC for a possible discount).
