Program Overview

But the location is just part of what the World Endeavors Summer Study in England program has to offer. Students choose this program for the opportunity to study under highly-regarded researchers and instructors, see their field of study from a new perspective, and have a wide range of classes available to them all taught in English. In any study abroad program, the most successful students are open-minded and excited about experiencing a new culture and lifestyle.

The rooms include a single bed, desk and chair, with a wardrobe, drawers, bedside storage and a mini fridge. Each room also has a flatscreen tv and free wifi access. Breakfast and dinner are included for the first four weeks of the program.

Recent England Testimonials

Valentina WInternship in England

I am a Canadian who did an internship through World Endeavours last summer in London, England. I was a little apprehensive as I have never done anything like this before and did not know whether these companies were a scam. I am happy to report the World Endeavours was definitely not a scam. They were very professional from the first contact and guided me through the entire process. They managed to find me an internship in the exact profession I wanted (law) and provided me with safe, comfortable accommodation. I was met, while in London, in the first couple of days by their British representative who offered me practical and emotional support. I would highly recommend this company and wish everyone the best on their internship searches.

Courtney BIntern in England

This was an amazing experience that I would not have been able to partake in if it was not for World Endeavors. World Endeavors took care all of the organizing and planning leading up to the trip; they were also there during the trip as well. I felt very prepared and confident to go abroad after reassurance from World Endeavors. This is a very trustworthy agency and I believe everyone should take the opportunity to complete a program through this agency. The work they do is phenomenal and I probably would not have taken the leap abroad if I didn't go through an agency.

Philip FIntern in England

This experience has changed the way I think as exploring a much larger country than my home country has made me realise to think big and grab every opportunity with both hands as they may not be available later on. My WE coordinator was extremely resourceful and helped me from the start and towards the end of my program 🙂

Julia GIntern in England

This experience gave me great insight into the mental health field within the UK and urged me to take the next step in my education and pursue my masters in London. Thank you for everything! Especially my WE coordinator, this year has been crazy but she helped ease the anxiety and stress during COVID!
