Oberlin College's Danenberg Oberlin-in-London Program is an interdisciplinary study-away program in one of the world's most dynamic and diverse cities. The focus of the program changes each year, based on the interests of the specific Oberlin faculty who are teaching that semester.

This 20-minute video will give you a glimpse of what the program offers:

Spring 2018:

Applications will be due 3 March 2017.

2. To find the London Program in the portal, go to the Programs menu, search for
"London," and the Oberlin-in-London Program will appear in the list.
3. You do not need to apply for an Academic Leave of Absence.
4. Note that you will need your advisor's signature on the Application Approval Form (downloadable from the portal), so don't wait until the last minute to make an appointment with them.
5. Be sure to ask a faculty member if they're willing to write you a recommendation before entering their name in the application, since doing so will trigger an immediate email request to them, and you wouldn't want that to come as a surprise.

The 2018 London Program will focus on the relationship between nature and culture in Britain, with classes taught by Janet Fiskio (Environmental Studies) and T. S. McMillin (English), as well as our resident London faculty. You can find information about the program here.
