London is unsurpassed in the English-speaking world for its wealth of historical and academic resources. London's libraries, archives and museums offer avenues for independent research into topics across a wide range of British and World history. In short, the city's own existence over two millenia and its present-day position as a leading cultural and academic center present unrivalled opportunities for studying the past..
The program is affiliated with the Department of History of University College London, and students will have access to library and recreational facilities available to University College London students.
The History FSP consists of the following three courses (all three must be taken):
Students live in flats in central London, within easy reach to UCL, theatres, museums and other famous historical sites. All flats have a comfortable living room, with television and wireless internet, and kitchens with a full range of crockery and utensils. Students will need to provide for their own meals.
The size of the program is limited and admission is selective. You do not have to be a History major to apply, but before arrival in London participants should have taken two courses in History. Application to the program includes submission of a proposal for an independent field project (History 97) on a topic in British, European, or world history that makes use of London's exceptional research opportunities. Members of the History Department are available to advise applicants on the merit and feasibility of their project ideas.
