This program is offered in colloboration with Veritas Christian Study Abroad at the Roehampton University in London, England. London, considered by many to be the world's knowledge capital, is a place where you can meet people from every country around the world and still feel at home.

Courses
Students are required to take a Religion and Culture course and an International Missions/Service-learning practicum taught by local Veritas staff.  The remainder of the courses will be taken at Roehampton University.  For a sample list of courses go to courses.  Scroll to the bottom to see a partial list of courses taught in English.

Application
The student will fill out two applications:
• George Fox off-campus application form (obtained from the Center for Study Abroad; or downloaded here)
• Veritas Christian Study Abroad application (to be completed online here). An application fee must accompany your application.

* The Veritas Christian Study Abroad application should only be completed after being informed from the Director of Study Abroad that you are accepted for an off-campus study semester.

Eligibility
Students must be full-time undergraduates with junior or senior status, holding a cumulative GPA of 3.0 or higher to apply. There is NO language requirement.

Credits
Because students remain enrolled at George Fox University while participating with Veritas, academic credit is awarded by George Fox. Students will typically take 16 credit hours. Students will be required to attend two pre-departure meetings, complete an online course evaluation, and attend a re-entry meeting upon their return. Students must see the transfer credit specialist in the Registrars office BEFORE they begin their semester off-campus.

Housing
Students will live in residence halls with British and other international students located on the Roehampton campus.

Costs
The student pays George Fox's standard tuition, room and board, and student fees (an additional fee is required to attend some programs).  Participants continue to receive financial aid, including scholarships, since they are officially George Fox students.  Round trip airfare is additional.
