The Skidmore in London program begins with a pre–departure orientation held on the Skidmore College campus in Saratoga Springs, New York, during the semester prior to studying abroad. Upon arrival in London, students attend orientations provided by their host institutions, each designed to orient students to that particular university.
London is renowned for its many historic sites and for its abundance of cultural and entertainment opportunities. We encourage our students to take the initiative to explore the many cultural opportunities available throughout the city. To this end we subsidize a variety of cultural and extracurricular activities for our students, including theater and concert tickets, museum entrance fees, and special library fees.
