Study In England

Take your pick of a more independent exchange-student experience in bucolic Reading University, or have a more traditional experience with Centre students and faculty in the bustling heart of London. Centre drama students also have the option of participating in a small exchange with The Rose Bruford College of Theatre and Performance.

Reading University

Reading University sprawls 300 leafy acres and is a quick 25-minute train ride from London. The university is known for its academic excellence and the professionalism of its Visiting Student Office, which organizes inexpensive and frequent trips to Edinburgh, Stonehenge, and other area destinations.

London, the city of more than eight million, is perhaps the most dynamic and diverse city in the world. In the 21st century, it still lives up to Dr. Samuel Johnson’s famous 18th century dictum: “When a man is tired of London, he is tired of life.”

The program begins in early February. students will arrive on February 9 and will depart 27 April. Students will remain in London for academic activities and possible excursions except for the 5-day spring break and the weekends of February 26- Feb 27, March 5-6, and April 2-3. After exactly 11 weeks, the program ends in London on the morning of Wednesday, April 27. Students may fly out of London on April 27 or choose to travel in the U.K. and/or Europe on their own after April 27 and fly back later from London, Paris, Rome, Frankfurt, or wherever. These are subject to change so always check with your director.

The Rose Bruford College of Theatre and Performance

The Rose Bruford College is one of London’s leading drama schools and is located in the leafy south London town of Sidcup. RBC has an international reputation for top level training in all aspects of the theatrical arts. Each year two or three of their students study at Centre in the fall, and two or three of our students study there in the winter and spring terms. This exchange is designed to give their students a taste of a liberal arts approach to education and our students a taste of the conservatory experience. Generally aimed at dramatic arts majors, this opportunity is open to all Centre students who meet the basic requirements.

Students will generally begin their experience in London during the third week of January and their course work will end towards the end of May.
