In addition to IES Abroad courses, IES Abroad London encourages you to enroll in a course offered at one of several prestigious British institutions. This is a great way to experience first-hand the British higher education system, and meet British students.
You may enroll in one supplementary course per semester for no additional fee. If you choose to enroll in more than one supplementary course, there is a per-course fee.
You must meet the university’s specific requirements, including a GPA of 3.0 or above, and, in certain disciplines, prerequisites and junior or senior standing. You should select courses only in your major or minor.
