London-born and Sri Lankan-raised rapper M.I.A. is perhaps the most famous representative of the fascinating Asian and African influences that make up ethnically diverse London – but she's certainly not the only example. On CIEE's Asian and African Studies program, you'll explore firsthand the histories and cultures of those who call this culturally rich city home, like the Bangladeshis in King's Cross, Africans in North Kensington, Caribbeans in Notting Hill, and Iranians in Queensway.
Study abroad in London and you'll:
Take a wide range of courses including social sciences, humanities, and the study of languages and cultures with a focus on Africa, Asia, and the Middle East
Learn about other cultures and languages through dedicated language labs and television programs from around the world
Integrate with the diverse student body through the thriving multicultural student union facilities at SOAS
Join CIEE on excursions in and around London and a weekend to Wales, Scotland, Northern Ireland, or Ireland
