Why We Love FYSAE
Visiting and Learning in England
Arcadia’s courses bring you into London’s streets and neighborhoods for hands-on learning experiences that give context to your studies. You’ll visit galleries, theaters, historical sites, local communities, markets, and more.
Build community by living in apartment-style with other FYSAE students at Princess Elizabeth House.
Use your scholarships and financial aid to cover FYSAE tuition and housing costs, the same as a semester on the Glenside campus.
Health and Safety
With more than 75 years of study abroad experience and dedicated Arcadia staff in London, we have you covered.
Take the Next Steps
Express your interest today or wait for automatic review, usually within two to three weeks after being admitted to the University overall. Selection for FYSAE is based on your application for admission and additional credentials.
