Two Grinnellians join sixteen students from other colleges to share their off-campus study experiences.
Off Campus Study
How does what you learn — in diverse cultures thousands of miles away — affect you and others once you return to Grinnell?
Grinnell-in-London currently offers up to fifteen slots for internships, up to three in the British parliament and up to twelve at-large. Because the number of students in our program who can serve as interns is regulated by the UK Border Agency, selection of students for internship slots is usually competitive. Selection is based on students' academic records, the viability of matching a student's interests with the kinds of internships available in London, and the suitability of a student's background for a proposed internship.
A student discovers that study abroad doesn’t necessarily end after one semester.
"Grinnell put us together. This is the meeting place." — Serbian Kristina Duric '13
Individual Financial Aid Counseling

Your Academic Adviser
Since your program choice should be connected to your academic interests and four-year plan, you should start by talking with your academic adviser. Your adviser can help you decide whether studying off campus would be beneficial and may have suggestions about subjects you may wish to deepen and enhance. Advisers want to know which programs attract you and may also offer suggestions. If you have not declared, you should also seek advice from a professor within your intended major department about program choice and the best semester to participate.
